Bubbling over with excitement for love’s favorite day of the year? Well, Chandon has given us plenty of reasons to celebrate with cocktail recipes to savor and a beautiful bonus gift, courtesy of their partnership with Sephora. A limited-edition lip gloss in a sparkling pink hue is the perfect pairing for a kissable pout. It’s available at select stores nationwide throughout the month of February with the purchase of any Chandon bottle.
That bottle is also bursting with the possibility of creating delectable drinks that will quench your palette’s thirst for tantalizing taste. Here are a few simple selections you can concoct at home for your own champagne-style seduction:
1/3 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
3/4 oz. Gin
1/4 oz. Simple Syrup
2 Dashes Rose Water
Directions: Shake fresh lemon juice, gin, simple syrup, and rose water over ice. Pour into glass and top with 3 oz. Chandon Rosé. Garnish with raspberries.
