Valentine’s Day Fun {French Blonde: A Pretty Pink Empress Cocktail}

It’s been a good while since I’ve shared an Empress cocktail. Do you remember my pandemic project?! When I ran across this recipe on their Instagram, I knew I had to gather the ingredients to take to my girls weekend in the mountains. We thoroughly enjoyed it there, and Honey and I also enjoyed it at home. I think the perfectly pink color makes it a lovely option for Valentine’s Day!

I have used these edible rose petals before and think they would make a beautiful garnish: Rose Petals
