When one’s had a crazy busy week, there’s nothing better than getting together with friends and having a girl’s night with some of your best girlfriends. You can chat, nosh on some delish dishes, enjoy some fabulous cocktails and always save room for a sweet treat!
One of my recent discoveries has been Sauza Sparkling Margaritas. So when Sauza Sparkling Margaritas wanted me to share some ideas for the *perfect* Girl’s Night In, I couldn’t resist. After all – I love a fabulous soiree and it’s been long overdue. For me, margaritas or prosecco are synonymous with girl’s night and to have one that was a sparkling margarita is like having the best of both worlds. I knew that the signature cocktail would be flutes of Sauza Sparkling Margaritas with some fresh berries for the wow factor.
I don’t go too crazy with decorations and such when it comes to soirees – simple, casual and easy is the best way to do it. However, when it comes to the menu, I tend to go a bit crazy. I’m all about planning and preparation ahead of time so that I can be a guest at my own soiree. However, I also have been known to change the menus on a whim so my friends never know what to expect.
For the evening’s menu, I decided to go with a “MexiCali theme” with a spicy and cheesy Queso Fundido to start the evening followed by Baja Chicken Quesadillas with a delish corn salsa and my favorite Roasted Poblano Rice. I was going to attempt Tres Leches Cupcakes because every good gal’s night should have cupcakes but, as I said to my friends, when inspiration strikes – one goes with it. I vaguely remembered Nigella Lawson serving prosecco over some sorbet on an early episode of one of her shows so I decided for dessert we’d have some zippy quick Sauza Sparkling Sorbets. Let me tell you – they were a highlight of the evening. I went with the original flavor Sauza Sparkling Margarita and paired it with a raspberry sorbet and some fresh blackberries. Utter simplicity and decadence all in a spoonful.
