Bright lights, diamonds, suits and ties, the red carpet – or maybe it’s just a night in with your friends, some comfy shoes and delicious appetizers, we all celebrate the Oscar’s differently but this year we are doing it with style. Petite Crème has been described by our fans as, “silky”, “an obsession”, and “delicious” for its light creamy taste. We wanted to show people that you can take the fancy little cup and take it anywhere – even to Oscar’s night, so we decided to pair it with our favorite cocktails.
Since Petite Crème is really afresh cheese that’s eaten like yogurt, it pairs quite well with our selection of beverages. We chose certain Petite Crème flavors to best accommodate each drink and they were each as surprising and delicious as we had hoped.
