“We were together. I forget the rest.”

{Cocktail Love}

After the demise of my most favorite, bestest magazine of all time, my second favorite has moved into top place: Gourmet. They have great recipes, but it’s also so beautifully styled and photographed. For the past several months they have been featuring cocktails from different decades, and this month it’s the 70’s. If you know me, well then you have heard me rhapsodize about all things champagne. And, thanks to a few of the very cool ladies here on the blogosphere, I am a recent convert to Lillet on the rocks. {I know, late to the party as usual}. So…

Lillet Champagne Cocktail


I’d like to say I’m drinking one of these right now, out of one of those gorgeous retro glasses, it being Saturday night and all, but no. I’m just telling you all about it. But soon, my friends. And you will be the first to know. In the meantime, here is the recipe. Cheers.

    In a chilled Champagne glass combine 1/2 cup Lillet with 3 ice cubes, fill the glass with chilled Champagne, and garnish the drink with a twist of orange peel. Makes 1 drink.

BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
