Sweet Seduction“Hi, mind if I sit, here?”

“No,” please do.”

“Thank you; I’ve had a week. But let’s not focus on the negative; it’s happy hour! Can I buy you a drink? Perhaps we can chat over a cocktail.”

So, what do you order? Try this, an elegant cocktail with bubbles that is a great icebreaker and says, “I know what I want; I think you will like this; let’s be friends … or more.”

3/4 oz. St-Germain

1/4 oz. Aperol

1 oz. Bombay Sapphire gin

1/4 oz. fresh lime juice

Sparkling rose.

Making it: Shake first four ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Top with bubbly and garnish with a raspberry or orange twist.
