Anniversary celebrations with my best friend and husband of 50+ years, become more special as the years go by.
What better way to make it memorable, than on this patio of a beautiful French restaurant.
The La Caille is in a fantasy garden setting located in Sandy, Utah. There are graceful swans and peacocks roaming through the floral gardens.
After dinner, we ordered a rather spectacular cocktail.
To make this special drink, you need one very brave drink mixer with a winning smile!
He coated the glass with liquid sugar and added a shot of brandy.
With a flourish, he generously coated the sugared glass with freshly grated cinnamon.
The glass with cinnamon and brandy became quite flammable, luckily his sleeve wasn’t.
Please do not attempt this trick at home or anywhere else, for that matter.
While the glass was still flaming, he added some other liquors to the mixture.
After looking greatly relieved to complete this drink, he now had to repeat this amazing feat again for the second drink.
How were our drinks and dinner? The meal tasted fantastic and the staff made it even more memorable.
Not surprisingly, we’ve never found anyone that will attempt to replicate this special drink for us again.
It doesn’t matter where you go or what you do in life, it’s who you have beside you that counts.
Happy anniversary my love, we know the best is yet to come.
Please share a comment about your most memorable dinner or anniversary experience, I’m looking forward to hearing about yours too.
