Lulu B’s Fabulous Cocktails have your chocolate craving handled

Longer days and warmer evenings mean grilling season.  It also means evenings with friends, family and chilled cocktails on the back deck.  This time of year the dinner party moves outdoors and thankfully Lulu B. has the most Fabulous Cocktails to serve at your next gathering.

Spending time with the girlfriends catching up and having a few drinks is great down time and I love the grab and go concept of a premixed cocktail.  Lulu B’s Fabulous Cocktails are ready to serve and come in four delicious flavors which are, Margarita, Cran Cosmo, Mojito Cocktail and Chocolate Martini.

We spent an evening sampling, beginning with the absolutely delicious Margarita, which is premixed with Tequila, Triple Sec and natural flavors.  There were raves all around and this will be a Cinco de Mayo favorite this season.  We moved to the Chocolate Martini and the aroma was so intoxicating, it was difficult to retain control for pouring as all in attendance wanted to put their nose in the bottle.  This divine creation is made with Vodka and Crème de Cacao and was the hands downs winner of the evening.  The bottles clearly read “Guiltless Indulgence” and with 37 – 48 calories per serving, they certainly are.

Lulu B.’s Fabulous Cocktails retail at $14.99 for a 750 ml bottle and it is a great accessory to arrive with at any gathering.  Chill and pour.
