Cosmopolitan Cocktail Bars


Cosmopolitan Cocktail Bars | From My Sweet Heart

I was once told that online friendships are not real.  Yet if that is so, why do I feel like I would give my last crumb of bread to so many amazing people that I’ve (never) met over the past year?  There are so many people from across the country (and out of the country!) that I can only hope I will have the pleasure of meeting in person one day.  Anna is one of those people.  She is incredibly kind, caring and sweet.  She makes the most amazing baked goods, takes the most beautiful photos and has one of the best blogs out there.  She makes blogging fun with her Chocolate Chip Cookie Mondays and her Blue Ribbon Challenges.  I especially love her 2 ingredient Chocolate Mousse, Buttermilk Blueberry Buckle, and Snickerdoodle Cupcakes with Brown Butter Icing!  And she is genuine, sincere and REAL!  And guess what?  I’m going over to her place today, and bringing these Cosmopolitan Cocktail Bars that I made for her!

So come with me to visit Anna at Crunchy, Creamy, Sweet.  You will see instantly why I adore her!  And you can find  the recipe for these luscious bars that are flavored with . . . . .

  8. I’m absolutely intrigued by that glossy top layer. It’s gorgeous! And it’s firm enough you can cut it into lovely bars. I tell you, it’s the greatest marriage of a lemonbar-type dessert and a cocktail I think I’ve ever seen. It’s magical!

  9. Sweet Anne! Thank you so much for your lovely guest post on my blog today! It was a pleasure to have you and your bars are my new obsession. Thank you so much, sweet friend! xoxo

  10. I met my husband online before the www existed in Orlando where I lived. I knew I had feelings for him but I wanted to meet him in person to prove he wasn’t the person I perceived him to be. I went 10,000 miles for our first date and he was perfect. He still is 17 years later. :) So yes, it’s definitely possible to have real friends you meet online.

    Off to see Anna!
