We love sweet things and cotton candy has always been one of our favorite treats to buy at fairs and carnivals as kids.
We have seen similar cocktail on Pinterest and always wanted to try but we could NEVER seem to find cotton candy in our hometown. So when we happened to find a shop that sold the real deal, we bought some for our carnival themed Halloween party we decided we must take full advantage of the opportunity.
Our recipe is different to others in that they all let you dip the cotton candy into the glass of champagne, where we pour the champagne on top of the cotton candy. This recipe is much quicker to make then our Autumn Champagne Cocktail recipe since it only has two ingredients. Surprisingly, we found that the cotton candy did not make the cocktail super sweet. If you want it to be sweeter, just keep adding more cotton candy! The cotton candy melts within seconds so be sure to serve it in front of your guests so they can see the magic. We loved the bright color we got from the blue cotton candy but feel free to test out all the different colors! We are definitely planning to make for our next girls night or brunch.

We decided we wanted to add a little glamour to our bar cart and upgrade to linen cocktail napkins. They make any event seem fancier, plus they are good for the environment since you won't have to throw them away! Eve came up with the cute idea to make our own stencils with "cheers" printed in different languages on each napkin.
Cheers around the world:
Cheers: English, means "good wishes"
Skál: Icelandic, equivalent to "cheers" or "good health"
Sláinte: Irish Gaelic & Scottish Gaelic, translates to "health"
Kanpai: Japanese translates to "dry glass"
Prost: German & Austrian, in latin the translation for prost means "may it be good/beneficial for you!"
Saluti: Italian, translates in english to "regards"
