If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably noticed that my presence as been a little scarce lately and that when I have been around I’ve been quite stressed out—usually ranting about how much I hate…well…everything. Well that’s because I’ve been studying for the bar exam for the past 2 months. It was hands down the most stressful academic process I’ve ever gone through. I cried, I threw things, but ultimately, I got through it! As of yesterday, the exam is over and now—win, lose, or draw—it’s time to kick back and relax! What better way to do that than with a perfectly chilled Remy Martin V cocktail?!
Remy Martin V is Remy’s latest edition and I have to admit I’m kind of impressed. During my college days I was a “white liquor” kinda girl (probably because I honestly had no clue how to order a drink and vodka & cranberry was always on tap). As I’ve gotten older and developed a more informed palate, I’m 100% #teamDarkLiquor. Remy Martin V is like the perfect blend of both words, smooth and sophisticated like a dark liquor, but light and aromatic enough to make the perfect cocktail! With that in mind, I took a trip to the farmer’s market, stocked up on all the fresh fruit I could find and had a field day concocting the perfect fruity summer cocktail. And it was a total success! Trust me…I know…my photographer and I tried it over and over again. I have no problem being you guys’ test dummy. I’m selfless that way. Lol.
But if you’re looking for a more sure fire, bartender approved cocktail, here are a few for you to try out. Try them ALL and get back to me with your findings. If not, I’ll be forced to do it myself and…well…I’m not against it!
P.S. How neat are these glasses?! They have technology in them that let’s you know when your drink is perfectly chilled. The “V” goes from pink to a bright red. How cool is that!?
