Valentine's Day recipe: cotton-candy champagne cocktail

Valentine's Day recipe: cotton-candy champagne cocktail

What could be more playfully romantic than dissolving a puff of pretty, pink cotton candy in a bubbling stream of chilled champagne?

When I saw this idea on the back page of Her Magazine's wedding issue, I knew I had to try it and share the results with you readers.

For me, ideal Valentine's Day foods are either romantic (fondue), punny (artichoke hearts), or visual on point (anything hear-shaped, red, pink, etc.) This easy and delightful cocktail ticks both the first and third box. And if you can think of a punny name for it, you can tick the second box as well. 

And since making it is so fun -- watching the bubbling champagne dissolve the puffs of candy before your eyes -- it makes a great signature cocktail for a party. I suggest creating a make-your-own cocktail bar with puffs of candy artfully displayed alongside individually sized bottles of champagne. Galentine's Day, anyone?
