Cocktail Hour || French 75

Last weekend when I was in Phoenix, I had my very first martini.  Shocking, right?! That’s when I realized there are still so many delicious beverages that I have yet to try.  To solve this not-so-problematic-problem, I have created this column, Cocktail Hour, as place to not only post some fun photo shoot action, but also to give me an excuse to play mixologist and create fun cocktails on a weekly basis.  Naturally, the inaugural shoot had to be my personal favorite cocktail, the French 75!

The traditional recipe is really champagne heavy, but I prefer just a splash or two in mine…

I am so grateful to have had the amazing Jess Koehler take these photos for me.  If you aren’t familiar with her work, I highly suggest you take a minute to hop over and check it out!  Also, a huge thank you to Meg over at The Little Branch for the beautiful flowers!  She is so awesome and talented and I am so glad to know her.
