Jane Royale

In Baby Love, Drink on January 17, 2010 at 11:53 pm

The most beautiful baby girl in all of Los Angeles has her own signature cocktail. Think pink. Think pretty. Tie it up with a pretty pink bow, and you have the Jane Royale! This weekend, friends Trisha, Gia and I hosted a baby shower for one of our favorite people on the planet! Trisha had the genius idea of developing a pink cocktail to honor the little lady’s arrival, and I riffed on the French 75 to come up with a TOTALLY DELICIOUS cocktail that incorporated two of her mommy’s favorite adult tinctures: pink Champage and gin. I substituted pink Champagne for brut, agave syrup for castor sugar, along with a heady dose of gin and freshly squeezed lemons picked from the tree in our backyard. And then I dropped a raspberry in the bottom.

For party favors, Trisha tied gorgeous recipe cards (that she made) around splits of delicious and fruity Pommery Pink POP.  The result is a pretty and pink cocktail that packs an inconspicuous punch. And for people who don’t think they like gin (ie, my husband, a diehard vodka drinker,who PS was crazy about this concoction), this one is for you.

Jane Royale

2 ounces dry gin
1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce agave nectar
Pink Champagne
2 raspberries

Shake hard the first three ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker and strain into two chilled Champagne flutes. Top each with Champagne and drop a raspberry into each flute.

Check back later this week for add’l baby shower pics—lots of great shower ideas. I kind of can’t even deal with how amazing a hostess Trisha is…………I promise you will want to learn at the feet of the master mistress! Tune in tomorrow.
