So much happened over the course of my bachelorette party that one thing became clear…I could use a DRINK! Here are some good cocktails to whip up before hitting the strip club…I mean a nice respectable establishment.
1. The Blushing Bride Champagne Cocktail Recipe
2 ounces passion fruit nectar
3 ounces champagne
1/2 teaspoon grenadine
Handful of huckleberries
Pour chilled passion fruit nectar into a flute. Carefully add chilled champagne and grenadine; don’t stir, but allow to blend. Top with huckleberry garnish.
2. Shimmy and Shake Strawberry Vodka Lemonade
2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
1 cup granulated sugar
7 cups water, divided 1-1/4 cups lemon juice (about the juice from 6 lemons)
1 bottle Pinnacle Strawberry Shortcake Vodka
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring strawberries, sugar, and 1 cup of water to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 10 minutes. Place strawberry mixture into a blender or food processor and puree; set aside and allow to cool. In a pitcher, mix lemon juice, 6 cups of water and strawberry syrup. This is your Strawberry Lemonade. In a glass over ice, mix 1 part Pinnacle Strawberry Shortcake Vodka with 3 parts Strawberry Lemonade.
3. Vegas Juice
Disclaimer: Please have a sober buddy or at least a half way sober buddy to watch over you if you drink this one! Or, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas is going to be more than just a cliché!
1-2 sprigs fresh rosemary
3 tablespoons(1 1/2 ounces) tequila
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) lime juice
4 teaspoons (about 3/4 ounce) simple syrup ice cubes
In a cocktail shaker, combine 2 sprigs rosemary, tequila, lime juice, and simple syrup. Add ice cubes; cover and shake until very cold. Strain liquid into an ice-filled glass. If desired, garnish with additional rosemary sprig and blackberries.
