If you’re in the New Jersey area and want something to do this weekend…

…on March 3 get yourself on over to Bottle King in Wayne, NJ.  Kathy Wakile will be there pushin’ her brand new Red Velvet Cosmo Cocktail for $12.99 to $15.99 a bottle!  

Don’t be alarmed if you can’t make it this weekend.    A list of Kathy’s appearances is included below…  

NOTE:  If anyone can find that ‘national tasting’ award that Kathy received for her red velvet cosmo, please send SH an email with the details!!

From the ParamusPost:

Kathy Wakile of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is known for her delicious desserts.  Kathy and husband, Richie Wakile have played with the idea of opening up a restaurant and even starting a catering business on the last season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Kathy has developed an adult beverage, called Red Velvet Cosmo, and has plans to take her desserts to the next level.

About the drink, Kathy says, “Its a prepared beverage that you just serve over ice or chilled. It’s already mixed and it’s an adult-only beverage! It tastes just like red velvet cake! Sometimes you have to choose between having a cocktail or having a dessert, and this is a way that you can do both!”

“I’m in the process of partnering with a company to put my recipes out for the general public. A cookbook might be down the road, but I really would rather bring my mini dessert recipes to the public.  I’m working with someone to create a package where the consumer can create their own desserts and some of the steps are already done for them.”  (Hasn’t this already been done???  Kathy might want to google “Martha Stewart”… or maybe even Duncan Hines…)  

Kathy took the taste of her red velvet cakes and infused it into a prepared cocktail called Red Velvet Cosmo.

It already won a medal in a national tasting competition.

People who try it say it tastes and smells just like red velvet cake and some even swear they can taste cream cheese frosting. Red Velvet Cosmo will hit the market in New Jersey in March 2012 in major liquor retailers.  The cocktail comes in 750ml bottles 15% alcohol/30 proof and will cost between $12.99 to $15.99 per bottle.

Kathy will also be making personal appearances to sign bottles starting March 3, 2012:

  • Bottle King in Wayne 3/3 noon to 2pm, 
  • Wine Library in Springfield 3/10 noon to 2pm, and 
  • Total Wine in Cherry Hill 3/31 2pm to 4pm.

NOTE:  Kathy chatted with “Cinderella’sGlassCloset“… not much of the interview contained anything that hadn’t been heard previously from Kathy.  This question, however, was interesting!  

Had absolutely no idea that takin’ a slug of a cocktail involved all FIVE of the senses!  Would love to be around Kathy when she starts drinkin’!!!

What would it be like to have a drink with Kathy Wakile? Would you talk about the culinary life or motherhood? What would you like to say to your fans over a nice Red Velvet Cosmo?

Sharing a meal or cocktail is an intimate experience in which we indulge our five senses. I find that it’s a time where we can be ourselves and relax. You never know where the conversation will take you. I love to exchange stories and life experiences. Food and cocktails often do that for me. I tend to associate food with memories. Like how a song can trigger a memory; food has that same effect for me. Sharing stories with one another is how we learn and grow. Hearing other people’s triumphs and life lessons always inspires me. So lets serve up some Red Velvet Cosmo and chat!
