Wine Wednesday: X-rated fusion liqueur

You’ve been looking forward to a much-needed girls’ night for weeks, and after a fresh manicure, new heels and a lipstick to match, the day has finally arrived! No matter what the occasion –it’s best to just ditch the boys (sorry guys!!) and spend a night with your favorite ladies. And the beauty of a girls’ night is that no activity is out of the question. Movie night and homemade snacks in your living room? Pulling out all the stops with dinner, drinks and dancing? Or perhaps a stress-free spa day and brunch on a lazy Sunday? Whatever form it takes, regularly scheduled bonding time with your girls is an absolute must.

When planning that fabulous get-together, start with X-Rated Fusion Liqueur cocktails. This hot pink liqueur is a sensuous blend of ultra premium French vodka, infused with blood oranges, passion fruit and mango. Sweet with just the right amount of sass, this playfully named potion will put you and your ladies in the right spirit for almost any memorable girlfriend get-together.
While I wouldn’t recommend you have too many of these before a DYI project of a night of stuffing your wedding invitations, it’s a perfect way to say THANK YOU LADIES. Gotta love these names…
