Celebratory Drinks with Pearl Wedding Cake Vodka & Liquid Catering

Wedding Cake Vodka Group of Cocktails

Have you ever had a friend get engaged and simply popping a bottle of Champagne seemed like it wasn’t special enough? Are you tired of generic wedding shower punches? Then this post is for you!

A little while back I had the opportunity to spend a fun evening with Lindsey from Liquid Catering, our favorite professional bartending company in Greenville, SC. I had picked up a bottle of Pearl Wedding Cake Vodka because it seemed like a fun challenge, and I reached out to her to create some celebratory wedding cocktail recipes.

The goal was to create recipes that could be used at three different points during an engagement: the newly engaged, the wedding shower, and the bachelorette party! Not only did they each have to fit the theme, they also had to taste really good! Lindsey has had plenty of practice creating custom cocktails for weddings and other parties, so it’s no surprise that she knocked this one out of the park!

 

Pearl Wedding Cake Vodka - Put A Ring On It Put A Ring On It – Cheers to the new fiancés!

 

2 oz. Pearl Wedding Cake Vodka

1 oz. white grape juice

3 oz. prosecco

Shake vodka and juice in a cocktail shaker until cold, strain into a flute and top with prosecco.

Williams Sonoma Sanding Sugar Gold

We added a little gold glitter garnish using the sanding sugar from Williams Sonoma.

After a little trial and error, we decided it was best to run the sanding sugar through a food processor to make it a bit more fine. Not for too long though! Just enough to break it into some smaller pieces. We ran a lemon slice around the glass and the smaller pieces held put, no problem!

 

 

Pearl Wedding Cake Vodka - Coconut Lemon Cake PunchCoconut Lemon Cake Punch – A perfectly balanced wedding shower cocktail

 

1 oz. Pearl Wedding Cake Vodka

1 oz. coconut rum

3 oz. lemonade (we used Simply Lemon so it was nice and tart)

Mix all ingredients and chill (can be done in small or large batches). Pour over ice to serve.

Candied LemonOur garnish for this drink was candied lemons. I had them in a cocktail at Nose Dive once, and I became obsessed. To make my own, I read several recipes. The two most helpful were Martha Stewart’s Candied Lemon Slices and the Candied Meyer Lemon recipe from She Wears Many Hats.

I hope everyone enjoys their cocktails! Thank you, Lindsey, for being such an great mixologist!

P.S. Pearl Wedding Cake Vodka has no idea who we are or that we love their vodka this much. We just found a cool product we wanted to share.

Top 5 Most Frequently Forgotten Wedding Reception Items

Most Frequently Forgotten Reception ItemsWe all know that there are so many things that go into planning and pulling off a wedding reception.

You have your caterer, your florist, your cake, a place for the gifts to go, your seating chart/seating cards/sign letting people know they can sit wherever, a place for the guest book…and many other little things that you didn’t realize you were going to have to think about when you starting the whole planning process.

Throughout my time as a day of wedding coordinator, I’ve started to notice a trend of the top things that are mostly likely to be overlooked when planning a reception.

For the weddings that I help with, I’ve started mentioning these items specifically in my workbook that all of my brides complete. Also, if the item is small enough, I’ve just started keeping a back up in my emergency kit that I carry with me to every wedding.

These are all things that you can kind of wing, maybe, but it certainly isn’t ideal at all. Don’t be the bride that has to pick one of these up at the last minute. Check out the list below, and plan ahead!
