Congratulations to “TheCatLadyCooks” for her winning creation! Of course, the best accessory to a LBD (little black dress) is a strand of pearls. Our winner created a garnish for the rim of this cocktail imitates this same look. All you do is dip the rim in a bit of melted white chocolate and then coat it with pearlized sugar sprinkles.
I think this cocktail is perfect to serve at a bridal shower, bachelorette party, or simply a “girl’s night” weekend gathering!
