Champagne And Potato Chips

"Hey, did you ever try dunking a potato chip in Champagne.
It's real crazy!" 

Cocaine Princess here.

Welcome to the 152nd day of the year, aka June 1st. I love the summer~time, all the flowers and trees are in full bloom, the smell of fresh cut grass especially in the mornings, the sound of crickets chirping on a hot lazy summer night and the best thing, summer~time wardrobe: shorts and stilettos!

June 1st not only means summer is only 20 days away but today also would have marked the 85th birthday of Hollywood icon, Marilyn Monroe, and what better way is there to celebrate this day than with a drinkie! 

My Lovelies, I present to you....

 "The Marilyn Monroe Cocktail"




 "Marilyn Monroe was famous for her love of Champagne. She once filled up her tub with 350 bottles of Champagne, and took a long, luxurious bath in it. In the 1955  film The Seven Year Itch  {the movie that contains the scene most associated with Marilyn, the white dress blowing up over the subway grating} her character mentions she watered the plants with a cocktail shaker and dunks potato chips in Champagne. It's no surprise that a Champagne cocktail recipe was named after her." 


 INGREDIENTS:
*4oz Champagne 
* 1oz Apple Brandy
*1 Dash Grenadine Syrup
*Cherries For Garnish

PREPARATION:
1.Place all the ingredients in a champagne saucer.
2.Gently stir together.
3.Add Grenadine Syrup
4.Serve with two cherries on a stick.


And don't forget the bag of chips!
