Here’s the ‘back-story” of these cocktails!
I conceived these cocktail recipes while living in Aix-en-Provence France this last fall. I love to entertain with colorful parties that reflect the personalities of my many friends from Provence. This Cocktail collection runs the gamut of color and style from lovely Pink Elephant Cocktails to Lime Mint Safari Cocktails to Jungle Bleu Shots. I used Safari White Vodka and Safari Liqueur in theses drinks – one of my favorite brands!
I thought these cocktails would be a great introduction to the 2019 Golden Globes awards show on 1/6/2019
