I have a dear and fabulous friend who is a wonderful mother, real estate agent and yoga instructor. She holds a small class once a week, out of her home, and I love our summer sessions. Often we are able to practice outdoors, occasionally the kids are able to get together and play, and we usually have a glass of bubbles.

tracy and cocktail

On occasion, along with my yoga mat, I’ll bring ingredients to add to our sparkling wine, and mix up a cocktail.

VIOLETTE ROYALE

creme de violette

4 ounces champagne

1/2 ounce creme de violette

Pour champagne into a flute, top with creme de violette (when I poured, I didn’t measure precisely, but rather added the creme de violette to taste).

Enjoy!
