They were a hit!

I was recently asked to bring food and drinks to a very chic local boutique to celebrate the launch of a new French line of perfume.  I thought my Raspberry Rose Martinis would be the perfect concoction to get the soiree started and I was right!

Pink, light, fresh and scented ever so slightly with rose water for a whisper of Paris!
