La Vie en Rose
This is an elegant, moody cocktail. It opens mildly sweet-tart with a deep, dark porto fruitiness, but all that quickly gives way to soft Champagne bubbles and velvety foam. And it looks just as sophisticated as it tastes — we love the contrast of the bold ruby cocktail with its pink foam cap in a lean Champagne flute.
La Vie en Rose is perfect for life’s exuberantly happy yet weighty moments, the ones you invite your family and in-laws (or soon to be in-laws) to celebrate with you. Make it when you’ve got a big, exciting win, an engagement, or a splendid new job to toast.
1 ½ oz Grey Goose vodka

⅓ oz simple syrup
½ oz egg white
1 oz rosé Champagne
In a cocktail shaker full of ice, combine all of the ingredients, except the rosé Champagne, and shake vigorously.
Strain into a chilled flute.
Top with rosé Champagne.
