Bridal Shower Inspiration Week: Cocktails by Sugar & Charm
March 23, 2012

Raise a glass ladies and gents, because we are serving up some serious inspiration of the cocktail variety in this installment of our Bridal Shower Inspiration Week!  We teamed up our SMP master mixer, Eden of Sugar and Charm, with some of Macy's gorgeous glassware and the result was signature cocktail'll want to book-mark these delicious drinks for sure!

Eden never fails to wow us with her works of cocktail art, so when we asked her to whip up a few recipes that scream signature bridal shower cocktail - she of course delivered some mouth-watering sips. They almost look too pretty to drink (almost), and we can't WAIT for happy hour to roll around to partake in some Bridal Shower Inspiration Week "research". One look below and you'll understand JUST what we mean!

Ginger Sour Martini - This over sized Waterford Martini Glass is perfect!

3 ounces Sky Infused Ginger vodka
1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoon real maple syrup
2 eggs whites, beaten
1/2 teaspoon powder sugar

Add the Vodka, lemon juice and maple syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for about 10 seconds and strain into a martini glass. Beat eggs whites on high, add in powder sugar and keep whipping. Scoop egg white foam on top of the martini and garnish with a dash of lemon zest.


Honey-Citrus Cocktail - We love this cocktail served in these Waterford Brandy Goblets

4 ounces Sky Infused Dragon Fruit vodka
2 teaspoons honey
4 ounces fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
2 ounces fresh squeezed orange juice
sugar rim

Add the honey, vodka, grapefruit juice and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for 10 seconds and set aside. Wet the rim of the goblet with an orange or grapefruit wedge. Dip the glass, upside down, in a plate of sugar to coat the entire rim evenly. Pour the cocktail into the goblet and add ice. Garnish with a fresh flower and enjoy!


St. Germain Champagne - These Waterford Flutes couldn't be more fabulous!
6 ounces Champagne
1 ounce St-Germain Elderflower Liquor

Pour the Champagne into a Champagne flute. Add the St-Germain into the Champagne to give it a classic, flower essences. Garnish with a small flower (in your color scheme of course!) that fits perfectly into the glass. It’s an easy and elegant way to spruce up a glass of Champagne.

Oh how we love a delicious drinks to toast and gorgeous glasses to toast them in! Thanks Eden for  sharing your yummy recipes with us! xoxo
