Change is coming! We Spring ahead this weekend, soon Winter will be gone. I think everyone is ready to embrace that change! Yes, this has been one of those Winters that people just want over and done with. Speaking of change, I do have a wonderful change that I am sure you guys are going to LOVE!
Change is always a good thing, and change is worth celebrating, especially with a Girls Night In recipe. I am having a lot of fun coming up with recipes for my Girl’s Night In series. With Spring coming upon us, and hopefully, it will be soon. I felt like I needed a drink that had that hint of the sunshine. We all want to have the sunshine so bad these last few winter weeks.
I was given the chance to work with Mandarine Napoleon. This is a lovely orange flavored liquor, that I love mixing in drinks. According to the website:
Mandarine Napoléon is an exquisite, well-balanced blend of mandarins and refined 10-year-old aged cognac. Dating back to the early 1800s, and its roots stemming from the hands of Napoléon Bonaparte, the liqueur’s history is as rich as its distinctive flavor. The drink was custom made for Napoléon, after the emperor came across chemist Antoine-François de Fourcroy, known for his extraordinary skill of distilling. It was not until 1892, after the two had died, that the liqueur was introduced to the public.
With everything that has been going on with my dad’s health, I wanted to relax and unwind. I wanted a drink that was refreshing and dare I say it? Flirty with my taste buds. I decided I wanted to do a triple orange: Orange juice, Mandarine Napoleon, and orange sorbet. It was Seductive, and it was the “Oh, Napoleon”
- 1/2 cup of orange juice
- 1 cup of orange sorbet
- 3 tablespoons of Mandarine Napoleon
- Combine the orange juice, sorbet, and the Mandarine Napoleon in a blender. Press “Whip” and blend it together for about a minute. Then pour into a glass and ENJOY!
