Hi SMP brides! It’s Angela here from Saffron Avenue bringing you a couple fun cocktail recipes and pretty printables to go with. My fiancé and I will be using these as our signature drinks for our very small and intimate wedding in North Carolina. Almost every guest will be traveling from the Midwest so I picked out these two cocktail recipes that fit in nicely with the season and Southern charm of the area.
PEAR GINGER CHAMPAGNE
This signature drink is the Pear Ginger Champagne, the reason I chose this cocktail is not only because I love pears, but since our reception venue allows us to bring in any non-liquor beverages I knew champagne would be perfect for our guests! The mix of the pear nectar, ginger, and champagne gives the drink the right amount of sweetness and is perfect for an early summer night. (recipe adapted from Sweet Peas and Saffron)
- 2 shots of Pear Nectar
- 1 shot of Ginger Simple Syrup
- Fill Glass with Champagne

THE SOUTHERN SHANDY
The Southern Shandy is refreshing and crisp includes both beer and liquor. I have a feeling it will be a hit considering everyone will be traveling all day and ready for a refreshing beverage! (recipe adapted from Pretty Plain Janes)
- 4 shots of Light Beer
- 1 shot of Peach Rum
- Fill glass with Lemonade

Happy cocktail crafting! xoxo, Angela
