A 75 for 32 [Rhonda]

A 75 for 32

Thirty-two years.

Thirty-two measures of bliss. Laughter, stories, butting heads, how-was-your-day, three little sons, I-can’t-believe-you-just-said-that, where’s the cat, wait-‘til-you-hear-this snippets of dinner conversation.

Tonight we celebrated our classic 32-year run with a classic cocktail.

The French 75

1 bottle of very nice champagne
2 splashes of VSOP cognac
1 squeeze of fresh lemon
Sugar, to rim your most beautiful champagne glass
Lemon rind, to garnish
Pour the cognac, squeeze the lemon, pour the champagne. Toast, sip. Love.

Suggested soundtrack:
Evelyn "Champagne" King's "Boogie Oogie Woogie"
We danced so hard to this song....
