I thought I’d share a little Champagne Spritzer that I’ve been lovvvving lately, especially since its pink, & Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. For those of you celebrating Valentine’s Day with your girlfriends ( aka: the right way ), you’ll need to knock a couple of these back during/after brunch hour & pretty much all day.
Can we talk about something? This whole GALentine’s Day thing is kind of my shit. I mean, since middle school ( my friends will remember this ), I hosted an annual Valentine’s Party at my house for my friends who didn’t have boyfriends. Of course, I hosted ( every. year. ) because the ‘boyfriend thing’ really wasn’t ever ‘my thing.’ In college, this kind of became an excuse to go out on a weekday ( if thats when V-day fell ) & do a massive amount of tequila shots… but, you get my point: I always celebrate the ‘day of love‘ with my friends.
I’ve never been much of a romantic ( understatement-of-the-year ), but I’ve always been a fan of: 1) brunch, 2) themed events, & 3) an excuse to get all of my gals together. So… this Saturday creates the perfect opportunity for a THEMED BRUNCH W/ GAL-PALS… I don’t know if a more perfect combo exists. Its kind of perfect… right? Ahhhh, simple bliss.
Here’s the fresh-to-death drank for you to sip on…
SEXY & SWEET WATERMELON + CHAMPAGNE SPRITZER
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
♥ Watermelon Juice
(I like WTRMLN WTR.. found at Whole Foods!)
♥ Salt or Sugar for glass rim optional
(wish I would’ve, though!)
♥ Pop da bubbly
♥ Optional Step: Put Salt/Sugar on glass rim
♥ Pour champs over ice (I recommend… a lot)
♥ Top with a splash of Watermelon Juice
Let’s talk about this real fast:
1) This champagne ( Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial ) is the FIRST champagne created to be enjoyed over ice, specifically. Changing the mimosa game, amirite? And, its so pretttttty, holy cow. I’m a very loyal Andre ( aka: $6 champs ) drinker, because I’m on a college budget, but V-day calls for something a little fancy/fresher.
2) This Watermelon Water will rock your life: I like this stuff by itself, too. Benefits? Watermelon is an anti-inflammatory fruit with lots of antioxidants, and it is loaded with Potassium & Magnesium ( your heart will thank you… omg so Valentine’s Day ). Its packed with Vitamins A ( free-radical destroyer ) & C ( immune-booster ) AND has less sugar than orange juice! Another thing I love about WTRMLN Water, in particular, is that water is never added. It’s legit watermelon juice with a splash of lemon. In short: I recommend it. ( << Unsponsored, on the real )
Unfortunately, I won’t be hosting my beloved Valentine’s Party this year… because I will be in Maryland, freezing my ass off ( 25 degrees.. no thanks ), but my friend Maggie and I will keep the GALentine’s spirit alive ( w/ a few boys on the side.. but they don’t matter ). GALentine’s will not die, even when I’m old & married. Idgaf.
