Bellini Week: The Sweet & Sassy

Meet Amy...
I think this picture speaks a thousand words, how about you? Amy is one of my closest friends in the city and also my "partner-in-crime." Our time together is normally spent bypassing the gym to hit up #WineDownWednesdays at our fav go-to-spot, The Palm (don't ask, sometimes we think we're rich and in our 40's I guess) where we indulge on Hearts of Palm salads and overpriced bottles of Justin. Amy's not just a friend though -- she's a confidant, a goofball, an intellect and a career bulldog all wrapped into one #gfree sandwich. So with a personality like Amy's, I didn't know where to begin...

  • Amy has a rich characteristics (as exhibited in photo A above) so that called for a cocktail that was just as decadent!
  • Amy packs a punch when she needs to (e.g. don't ever try to steal Ike Davis of the Mets from her - that's her man!) so I needed to spice things up a bit!
  • She was with me when I got this Godiva vodka, so it was a practical decision to use it here. DEFAULT (hehe!)
  • It's gluten-free, just like Amy!
  • 1 shot of Godiva vodka
  • 1 tsp of chocolate syrup
  • cayenne pepper
  • Sparkling white wine
Layer 1 tsp. of chocolate syrup on the bottom of your champagne flute. Add 1 shot of Godiva Vodka and stir. Top and fill with sparkling white wine of choice. Pepper in cayenne pepper to taste. Rim glass with chocolate syrup and additional cayenne pepper for extra spice.
