Mother's Day, y'all!

Hello lovely people!

I hope you've all had a fabulous April - mine was pretty killer!  We were asked to be involved with the High Museum Wine Auction in a dine-around dinner, and had an absolute blast, and Farmer's Market Season has started!  I'm jazzed that JARDÍ is at a few around the city - Grant Park, Ponce City on the Beltline, and Decatur!  If you're around (they're all on different days), you should drop by and please introduce yourself, we love meeting our customers!

The best part of April, though, is the fabulous weather.  Spring has officially sprung - and as one of my teacher's at school used to say, Gin Season has begun.  But, in my mind, it means that Brunch Cocktail Season has started!  So, of course, we started playing with ways to integrate them into our chocolates - and came up with 4 fun new flavors to celebrate all things spring, and voilà, our Mother's Day box was born!

The four flavors include:

Mimosa: Sparkling wine and orange juice come together in a white chocolate ganache, complete with the champagne fizz!
Mojito: Hand-juiced limes and rum get topped with a fresh mint sauce - tart, sweet, and perfectly refreshing.
Paloma: This lesser-known cocktail is one of our favorites!  A fresh grapefruit and tequila ganache is layered with a tequila caramel.  Olé!
Piña Colada: Milk chocolate and coconut come together in a silky ganache, then we add some pineapple jam.  You'll be singing that Rupert Holmes song all weekend!

And of course they're available in our 4, 8 and 12 piece boxes, so you can decide if you want 1, 2 or 3 pieces of each flavor.

Hope to see you at the markets!

Easter Bunny Wrap Up

Hello all you lovely, fabulous, and unfailingly generous people!

I hope y'all had an amazing Easter and are enjoying whatever version of Spring your particular part of the world is enjoying (or, possibly, just enduring).  My apologies to my friends up North, I hear y'all got some more snow this week :(

Just a quick post today to show that I haven't been eaten by the abominable-spring-time-snowman, and to let you know that after all was said and done, we were able to raise $300 for the Georgia House Rabbit Society!  This money will go a long way towards helping these amazing people give food, shelter (and most importantly) medical care to the rabbits in their charge.  This donation will keep 3 rabbits at the shelter healthy, safe and happy for a full month, or will allow 4 rabbits to be spayed, and therefore become adoptable.  

I can personally attest to the astounding expenses that can rack up with an ill rabbit; our baby Fernet had a medical emergency last month.  But thanks to the fabulous staff at GHRS, she is perfectly healthy again, and back to giving us the disapproving looks for which she's so famous ... 

Thanks again for helping us to support this amazing charity, and shed a little light on the plight of the Easter Bunny.  Keep your eyes peeled for new posts coming 'atcha ... there are big things on the horizon!
