Happy Hour: Pink October

Oct 14, 2011

 

The Atlantique from The Intoxicologist

1-1/2 part Vodka

1/2 part Fresh Lemon Juice

1/2 part Chambord

1/4 part Peach Schnapps

Peach Slice Garnish

Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake to blend and chill.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with peach slice on the rim of glass.  Lemon twist may be substituted.

Every October, a former professor of mine (a breast cancer survivor) hosts a house party/fundraiser for Komen for the Cure.  This year, she asked me for a cocktail that was “pink and fruity,” but didn’t use the too-sweet-to-handle p.i.n.k. vodka that most cocktails employ.  So, if you’re planning to have or attend a breast cancer awareness event, this cocktail is the perfect libation.

Asos Pleated Midi-Dress (Asos, $74)

In keeping with the theme of the week, the dress is under $75.  It’s also the perfect layering piece for Fall.  Add a belt.  Wear it with tights.  Put on a cardigan or a blazer.  Wear it under a sweater so that you can just see the skirt.  Or glam it up with a sequin sash and drop earrings.  Dealer’s choice.

Happy Hour
