Having been not 1, not 2 but 3 amazing festivals already this year I was thrilled to see an abundance of cocktail bars and they all had fabulous signature cocktails on offer, it got me thinking about how great it would be to have a signature wedding cocktail and to offer your guests the a little instruction card as a favour. There are so many quirky drinks out there but this one made me smile, made me want to sip it in the sun.
“A signature wedding cocktail is a lovely idea” Helen of Doily Day’s.
Jam & Tea were generous enough to share one of their inspiring recipes ‘Ginty’s Fizz’ with Helen of Doily Days…
x 1 bottle Prosecco or Champers if you’re feeling flash!
x 4 – 6 shots of Hendricks Gin, add more or less gin to liking.
x 6 tea spoons of rose water.
x 1 handful of fresh, seasonal berries, Jam and Tea love blueberries, strawberries and red currants.
x 1 – 2 Cups of pink lemonade
x 1 Lemon, sliced
x A few sprigs of mint.
A sprinkle of edible glitter.
You will need:
A large, tall jug or a punch bowlA long mixing spoon.
Champagne saucers/jam jars.
Cute little spoons (to dig out the Berries).
1. About a half hour before you would like to serve your cocktail place the Berries, lemon, mint, ice and A very small sprinkling of edible glitter into the jug/punch bowl.
2. Add the rose water and Gin and leave to infuse
3. When you are ready to serve your cocktail, add the Prosecco and pink lemonade – ready to go…
4. Prettiest served in Champagne saucers or jam jars wrapped in lace.
