The Bachelorette: A Cocktail

When I found out R was going to be out of town for a few days I instantly texted one of my girlfriends to plan a girls night. She is also husband-less at the moment so getting together to drink our sorrows away.. okay to drink and watch bad tv, was in order. She has been dying to try out this yummy chocolate based wine she picked up on a wine tour.

I picked up a bottle of bubbly and headed to her place to watch my first ever episode of The Bachelorette. I don't know about you, but if chocolate, champagne, and strawberries doesn't remind you of The Bachelorette, I don't know what will. Well other than drama of course, but we can't put that into a drink. The drink can sure bring drama though. I think.

So without further adieu I give to you our cocktail concoction: The Bachelorette:

1 Part Chocolate Based Wine
1 Part Champagne
Garnish with a strawberry (Or put them in the wine like I did later!)

Not the best photo ever, but it reminds me of a cherry cola!
Oh the drama.. :)

Linking up today with the ladies over at The Sequin Notebook for the Monthly Cocktail Link-Up!

  5. Oh I've seen the Chocolate Lab wine somewhere recently! I had no idea it was actually chocolate wine. I can only imagine how awesome that would be. And to mix it with Champagne? Great idea! I'd love it if you stopped by and linked this up with my Thursty Thursday link up on the blog today. It's a perfect addition!! Cheers!!
