This Tuesday, I was invited to a very special private mother’s day luncheon by Godiva Spirits. The event was held at A Voce Columbus, where executive chef Missy Robbins prepared our amazing three course lunch. My afternoon was surrounded by good company, great food/drink and warm atmosphere. The cocktails were amazing, bringing me to realize that Godiva infused vodka isn’t just your usual chocolate martini drink. My favorite cocktail was the Les Femmes Coupe- a very light and fruity mix, that’s perfect for any brunch-like party or shower!
1/2 oz Godiva Chocolate Rasberry Vodka
1 1/2 oz PIMM’s no. 1
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
2 droppers Bittercube Orange bitters
1 dash Regans # Bitters
Orange and lemon slices
Prep: Combine all ingredients into cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Pour contents into a Collins Glass over ice. Garnish with orange and lemon slices.
First course was an arugla salad with shaved ricotta salada paired with the Parisian Breakfast.

3/4 oz Lillet Blanc

Our main course was a braised brisket, circerchie beans, treviso and bone marrow paired with The Aromatic Allure, a super light yet not too sweet and delicious mix.

Chatting it up with Pam from Triple Threat Mommy.
In conclusion, it was a wonderful Mother’s Day celebration and cannot wait to host a party and whip up my new cocktail recipes! Thank you Godiva.
