Cafe Leni {aka: Amaretto, Whipped Cream & Espresso}

This past winter I was in Zermatt, Switzerland, the home of the Matterhorn, excellent skiing & the most amazing family owned restaurant Chez Vrony. A more detailed post on this rustic cafe will happen…but in the mean time happy Friday & I hope you have a spectacular happy hour ~ with these Cafe Leni cocktails! Cafe Leni {aka: Amaretto, Whipped Cream & Espresso} | a warming & very happy cocktail! MarlaMeridith.com This weekend is super busy here in Telluride, CO. We have our final BIG summer festival Blues & Brews. A three day weekend packed with amazing music, great friends & lots of photography. I have a media pass so i’ll be reporting a lot & posting to Instagram & Twitter to keep you in the loop. The front liner bands include the Violent Femmes, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and Peter Frampton. Many more bands as well throughout the weekend! Last year the festival was a giant mud pit ~ the rain kept a coming. But this year the skies will be bluebird & the temps in the 70’s. Perfect festival weather! It will look like this outside… Glorious Telluride, Colorado! MarlaMeridith.com OK. Now back to warming cocktails. And the Swiss Matterhorn… (can you you tell how much I adore the mountains!)

  1. LOVE this. Even if I’m not a ski-er, I feel as though I can get the experience (or at least the part of the experience I want) from this tasty potable.
