3 Unexpected Bridal Shower Cocktails

We’ve all been at bridal showers where they serve champagne and rosé and while none of us are complaining about those options, it’s always fun to mix it up! A refreshing cocktail is the best tool for beating the heat at summer bridal showers. Seriously, is there a better way to keep your guests happy?! Try one of these unique cocktails.

Limoncello & Lavender Prosecco (Yields 5 servings)
For the syrup:
1 cup water
1T lavender flowers
1 cup honey
½ c granulated sugar

For the drink:
1 cup limoncello liquor
1 (750ml) bottle of prosecco
lavender sprigs for garnish
lemon slices for garnish

Make the lavender infused simple syrup by bringing the lavender flowers plus the water to a boil over medium heat. Next, add the honey and sugar and stir until it is dissolved. Set this aside and let it cool.

In a pitcher, combine the liquor, prosecco and simple syrup and stir. Pour over ice into each glass and garnish with a sprig of lavender and a lemon slice.
Frosé (Yields 5 servings)
1 (750ml) bottle of rosé
½ cup lemon Italian soda

Pour the rosé into ice cube trays and freeze overnight. Blend the “ice” cubes and lemon Italian soda in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately.


Blackberry Jalapeño Margarita (Yields 3 Servings)
For the syrup:
2 sliced jalapeños
1 cup fresh blackberries
1 cup honey
½ cup granulated sugar
1 cup water

For the drink:
¾ cup tequila
½ triple sec
½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
blackberries for garnish

Make the jalapeño-blackberry infused simple syrup by bringing the jalapeño slices, blackberries and water to a boil. Next, add the honey and sugar and stir until it is dissolved. Let the simple syrup cool.

Combine the tequila, triple sec, lime juice and simple syrup. Pour over ice and garnish with blackberries.

Add a fun upgrade to any of your signature cocktails with one of these:


Summer Infused Ice Cubes
Add your favorite berries or flowers to ice cube trays and then fill them with water. They will make any drink pretty!

Popsicles
Place an upside down popsicle into your cocktails for an extra treat! We suggest a blackberry or lime flavored popsicle for the margarita.
