Mimosa cocktail is one of those finds we tend to discover when we’re on our late teens or early twenties and we’re trying to find what chic, classy grown-ups ingest. At least, that’s how I remember Mimosas, a fruit and sparkling wine based drink that not only looks great as the ultimate hand accessory but it sort of goes well with all types of social gatherings. I must admit I have never being big fan of Mimosas, but since my french hubby loves his Champagne with fresh pressed orange juice just so much, I asked Madame Gaignon (aromas n’ sabores Sommelier advisor ;) ) what else could we do to give Mimosa a much-needed facelift.
Hola amigos, for Karen´s & I third collaboration, we decided to propose you some ideas on how to set up and style a home bar. Long gone are those days when a bored housewife was supposed to greet her man with a cocktail on hand (just for him, obviously). These days, we, ladies & gents, like to enjoy a nice drink while in a chic but relaxed setting. With Karen´s smart advice, we integrated a `bar cart´ in a little corner of our living room, since then that place has become one of my husband´s and I fave spots à la maison. R. and I are really taking advantage of our swanky bar display and nowadays, he´s the one who pours a glass of Cognac for his gal.
We, humans are complicated, we´re never satisfied. While there is someone who wants to have, there is another who dreams to experience. Isn´t it?. Then there are those who want to have it all at the same time. ALL. Or those who just can´t get enough of one (good or bad) thing. Yes, we are such a complex breed.
I for example. I don´t care much about buying the latest miumiu shoes or the new it bag . What I deeply enjoy doing in my life is to travel for all what it implies; discover places, observe, register and learn from different people from distant cultures.
