The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.

  1. Chère Suzanne:

    Happy Valentine’s Day, and thank you for the beautiful roses. Since you have been getting back to your cocktail swilling roots lately, I would like to recommend one of my favorite cocktails to you and your readers for your Valentine’s celebration, the French 75, named after a French canon known for its reliability and nice kick.

    French 75
    1 oz Bombay Sapphire® Gin
    ½ oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
    ½ oz simple syrup
    4-5oz well chilled champagne

    Combine gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup with cracked ice in a shaker. Stir or shake well, strain into a chilled champagne flute, and fill with ice cold champagne. Garnish with a maraschino cherry in the glass and (optionally) a small orange wedge on the lip. Get ready for a treat.

    • How divine – a valentine we all can toast to. Dear sir, a profound thank you for this exquisite cocktail aptly named after a French canon “known for its reliability and nice kick.” Something, I daresay, we all need from time to time. Happy Valentine’s day!

  2. That cocktail does sound good. Unfortunately, I am suffering the after effects of swilling too many myself last night.

    Happy Valentine’s Day. Hope you receive the roses you post.

  3. Delightful…!
