Vin et Fromage Cocktail

This weekend I was lucky enough to attend a bloggers only retreat in LA hosted by a (blogger) friend of mine- it was absolutely exquisite. We dined, we laughed, and we all shared our favorite stories about being full time bloggers (I’ll have to do a post on this later, some of them were hilarious- I’m talking about you, Sherman!!). The best part of it all? The retreat was complete with a personal french chef for each of us.

I know.

It was just brilliant.

My chef’s name was Laurent. He was de Paris (#dreamscometrue). He made me the most incredible mayonnaise themed dinner I have ever had (diner’s choice, obvi) and every other girl at the table was so jealous they didn’t request the same thing- especially when the dessert came out.

But- and I can’t believe I’m saying this- the best flavor of the night didn’t come from my eighteen course dinner… it was the pre dinner cocktail the many chefs had collaborated on. Can you imagine? Seventy-three french chefs working together to create the perfect beverage?

The result was a dream. So incredible, an angel would have cried.

The Vin et Fromage Cocktail.

The craziest part of it all was that it was SO SIMPLE. You literally just dip the rim of a glass in a melted cheese and then fill with a red wine of your choice. I am literally amazed that no one has thought of this before- because it makes so much sense! It takes the best parts of France and delicately adds them to a crystal wine chalice.

I can’t wait to keep trying different cheeses- I’m thinking a nice gouda or jack next.

    I am a French Chef and I am a big fan of drinks like this. I make them for the président of France sometimes. He loves them.

    I wish I had cheese in the house but I don’t believe it exists so it’s been too hard for me to make this. Sounds great though!

    I have done this with Velveeta and it is seriously good.
    And if you happen to have wine thats been open a little too long, you can always add a dash of Canada Dry ginger ale to the wine to give it that sensational little bubble.
