    5 Homemade Cocktail Ideas to Complement any Bridal Shower

    Today we are talking about one of my very favourite things…cocktails! There is nothing better than the first sip of a green apple martini or an ice cold margarita to get a party started so here are a few ideas for some homemade cocktails that I think I’m going to be trying out myself very soon….

    Throwing a bridal shower/hen party from home is always a daunting task.  It is a very personal event, and one way you can make that show, is in your selection of homemade cocktails. Take a deep breath, check your pulse, and take it one step at a time. Today you’re going to decide what bridal shower cocktails to make from home for your guests.

    There are several considerations before you start mixing drinks that will shape your cocktail decisions:

    • Do you have the proper party supplies? In respect to drinks you need the capacity to store and serve several different cocktails, for the designated number of attendees, throughout the affair.
    • Always consider the tastes of the bride-to-be first. Everyone else’s preferences play second chair.
    • Tailor your drinks to external influences. Certain cocktails can be easily identified with: the destination of the wedding or honeymoon, seasons of the year, or even the time of day the shower will be taking place.
    • Be creative and personal. Will there be one drink throughout or several drinks that tell a story? Are there cocktails that have played a role in the life of the bride-to-be? Cocktails that inspire nostalgia and conversation will always be winners.
    • Be Consistent. Match the cocktails as closely as you can to the bridal show theme that has been chosen for the event.

    Whether you are serving a several different cocktails or just one, here are 5 great cocktail ideas with links to their recipes to get you started:

    1)   Orange Coffee Cocktail

    It can be hard to decide on beverages when many bridal showers take place in the morning. Wake up the party and get everyone moving with this alcoholic fruity twist on coffee. It is a great option for showers to ensure that everyone is pepped up and ready to give the bride-to-be their best.

    2)   Rose Punch

    Throwing a memorable bridal shower can be difficult work. If there is another aspect of the shower that requires the bulk of your time and focus, then it can be a prudent idea to make a large bowl of punch instead of crafting each individual cocktail. In clear glass containers these drinks are as beautiful as they taste. As an added bonus, few things say, “Love” like roses. Try laying a few long stem roses on either side of this punchbowl to really set the mood.

    3)   Apple-eldertini Cocktail

    Not all cocktails are created equal. An Apple-eldertini  will bring shock and awe, while doubling as a delicious appetizer. You’ll have to do a bit of work to pull this one off, but the effort will be well worth the appreciation you receives from all the partygoers.

    4)   Wedding Cake Martini

    Do I even need to explain why this cocktail makes a great addition to any bridal shower? It has the elegance deserving of every bride. This drink is also surprisingly reminiscent of the classic wedding cake that won’t let anyone forget why you’re celebrating.

    5)   Passion Fruit Mimosas

    You can never go wrong starting a party out with mimosas. Champagne is for celebrating, and what better way to kick off the celebration of a wedding than to incorporate champagne into your first cocktail. In addition, the passion fruit reminds everyone that you are celebrating an event built from love and, well… passion. If passion fruit isn’t your thing, there are many variations on the mimosa and you can use this drink as a great opportunity to display your creativity and personal touch.
