“Paris is for changing your outlook! For throwing open the windows and letting inla vie en rose”. Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina (1954)
We all know how to hum “La vie en rose”. It is the wonderful French song known all over the world, written, interpreted and brought to success by Édith Piaf. A hymn to love, and to see life in pink. The interesting thing is that a few songs in the history of pop music can claim to have been interpreted several times, in different versions by different artists and record companies. La vie en rose is one of those and Marlene Dietrich, Dalida, Ella Fitzgerald, Grace Jones, but also Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti are just some of the big names that have interpreted it. Dear fashion tasters, I think that if you follow my advice, you will be able to apply this principle also to Grand Marnier. I mean, by deepening my knowledge about this unique liquor, I have understood its strength: it is able to give the classic cocktails something more, making every occasion special. Try this version of the Earl Grey, it will pleasantly surprise you. Eau de tomate and Great Julep are the other cocktails created for the project #GrandMarnierLovesCharm.
They are irresistible!
