Classy as…well you know!

Joseph Coupal - Monday, January 27, 2014

This weekend I was going through all my glassware, for some reason I think collecting new things to drink out of is fun, and I realized I have never used my champagne flutes!

There have been may missed opportunities. New Year’s, my birthday, and the day I moved into my new place. The list goes on and on.

What I realized is, I don’t even like champagne all that much. Sure I’ll have some if it’s being served for a special occasion but I would never go out of my way to buy a bottle.

Rather than give away my beautiful flutes I decided to come up with a cocktail that looks better than any serving of champagne you could get.

So next time you find yourself wondering how to incorporate the always classy looking champagne flute try out this recipe.

I swear you’ll forget all about mimosas and bubbly!

The Peachy Deegan with Mini Flower Crystals® Rose Rim

Yield: 1 drink



Chill a champagne flute. In a shaker, combine lime juice, peach nectar, vodka and shake.

Pour Mini Flower Crystals® Rose on a small plate, lay out evenly. Add simple syrup (sugar & water mixture – heat to dissolve sugar) to a small bowl and dip the glass rim in it. Immediately dip the chilled glass in the Mini Flower Crystals® Rose plate. Strain the shaker ingredients into the glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and a sprinkle of Mini Flower Crystals® Rose.

It’s a no-brainer. Our Herb Crystals® & Flower Crystals® make a pretty sweet addition to any chocolate treat. So if you’re a sucker for a box of chocolates or you know of one, check out The Madison Chocolatier West. They are beautifully coating their strawberries with white and dark chocolate and then covering with our Crystals and Crystallized Flowers! These fancy strawberries are not like any regular chocolate covered strawberry you see at the market. They have also put our Crystals on the inside of their chocolate ganache truffles. What a burst of flavor in your mouth. And the Crystals stay crunchy!

They create small batch chocolates, all hand made using the freshest fruits, herbs, spices and ingredients that have no preservatives added. Each ingredient provides unique flavor pairings for exceptional chocolates. Check out their mouthwatering pictures here!
