Y’all remember the song “Pass the COURVOISIER?” with P. Diddy, Pharrell, and Busta Rhymes (that was released in 2001…..- yep you’re THAT old.) Where is your glass?! We have been legal for a while now! LET’S DO THIS!
This liqueur is one of many from the Courvoisier Cognac line of beverages- and they are all pretty good. However, for the wine-o’s (like myself) this is a rosy hit to my libations cabinet. Courvoisier Rose, per the bottle is “A smooth and aromatic drink. . . made with Courvoisier Cognac, Premium French Red Wine.” BUUUT most people don’t go reading all about it- they see this silvery-pink box in the liquor store, think “ooooohh faaancy!”, and hope to have enough coins to make the purchase. Although it seems upscale with the box- its really only $20.00. Plus it’s a liqueur, not a hard liquor, and NOBODY (usually) buys a $20 liqueur. “Coor-vah-see-aye” HAD to do SOMETHING-hence the box!
Anyways- this brandy and red wine mix has a subtle flavor- perfect for summery cocktails, but (because I’m lazy) I figured I would try a more simple approach to experience the flavah!
I put Courvoisier Rose on ice with APPLE JUICE- like the Old Black Man that I am. HA!
But Jeez-it was refreshing! I want to mix it with all of the juices in my fridge and that’s exactly what Rose is suppose to do. Very smooth, no funky aftertaste, and aesthetically appealing (and I don’t even like pink). Dare I say- Underrated?!?!
It also has a sloooooow kick. Sooo be cautious about mixing this with other alcohols. I had 3 cocktails with just the Rose alone and this was my face at 2.5 –> 🙂
It’s sexy. Keep it with the sparkling champagne and acidic juices and you should be fine for your Pure Romance shindig, breast cancer awareness after party, Kandi-Koated night, whatever!
*sing in Pharrell voice* Waaaoooowwwwooohhooooww
