Glitter Guide Sparkle-tini!

We were thrilled when Taylor Sterling of Sterling Style asked us to make a cocktail for her fabulously sparkly new lifestyle site Glitter Guide! With a name like that we couldn't wait to get started on the project, and it seemed that the possibilities were endless! We finally decided on a fresh, fun and bubbly concoction that you are sure to enjoy...






Glitter Guide Sparkle-tini

Makes 2

4 strawberries
1 ounce Vanilla Simple Syrup
1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
Champagne

Garnish:
2 ounces white chocolate
Sprinkles and/or edible glitter (we like to mix them together!)

In a food processor combine strawberries, Vanilla Simple Syrup and lemon juice. Blend until smooth. Prepare garnish by melting white chocolate and dipping rim of champagne glasses into it. Then dip glasses into a plate of sprinkles and/or edible glitter.  Add 1 ounce of strawberry mixture to each champagne glass and top off with champagne!

Vanilla Simple Syrup

½ cup sugar
½ cup water
1 whole vanilla bean (using just the seeds that have been scraped out)

Combine water, sugar, vanilla bean and seeds in a medium saucepan. Boil until sugar has dissolved, stirring frequently. Let sit for at least one hour. Let cool, strain and store in refrigerator.

Now let's all raise our glasses and toast to Taylor and her whole team! Cheers!
