Stay in and slip into something darker this weekend!
This weekend is going to be so fun I can hardly wait! I LOVED Fifty Shades of Grey and couldn’t wait to see the second film, Fifty Shades Darker. And now I get to host an exciting girl’s night in to watch the movie again with a few of my favorite gals. I’ve got the cocktails ready to pour and some sinfully sweet snacks for everyone to munch on. It’s going to be so fun!
On my party checklist:
- download Fifty Shades Darker on iTunes
- set up the cocktail/mocktail bar
- make snacks
Cocktail Recipe — Dark Crush Rosé Sangria
First I’ll show you how to make the cocktails. I love this drink, it’s perfect for parties! You only need a few ingredients and you can make a whole batch ahead of time. Plus everyone LOVES it so it’s always a hit.
- bottle of dry Rosé
- 1 bag of frozen raspberries
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 bottle club soda
- 1/2 lemon
In a large pitcher combine wine, 2 cups of frozen raspberries and sugar. Stir well and allow to refrigerate at least 2 hours (best overnight.) Squeeze half a lemon in and stir. Add ice and a spoonful of frozen raspberries to a glass. Pour sangria and top with a splash of club soda.
What goes well with a dark and sexy movie? Dark chocolate and sinfully good popcorn of course. This sweet snack mix is so delicious it’s hard to control yourself. Your guests won’t be able to keep their hands off.
Party Snack Recipe— Decadent Drizzled Dark Chocolate Popcorn
