It’s Happy Hour… SOMEWHERE!

July 10, 2014

Ok, we at sash&bow don’t know about you…  but we’re so ready to raise a glass to warm weather and celebrate summer!  From the 4th of July to August weddings to summer engagements, there are so many things to toast to this time of year.  That’s why we’ve rounded up four party perfect sips to serve up at your next soirée.  Cheers to that, right?

The Michelada

If you’re looking to spice up your signature drink, add micheladas to your menu!  A michelada is a Mexican beer drink that has several variations.  Micheladas typically include Mexican beer, hot sauce, lime juice, and salt, and may also be made with tomato or clamato juice, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, celery salt, or cayenne pepper.  The drink is savory, spicy, and unexpected; we suggest serving it as the signature cocktail at a casual backyard wedding or a hip brunch wedding.

Lavender Lemonade

Lavender wedding florals have been on our radar for some time, but today we’re bringing you an elegant new way to incorporate the delightful herb into your wedding events… a delicious lavender lemonade! While the fragrant herb may make you think of bath soap, it has a mild and delicate floral flavor, with hints of mint and rosemary.  This homemade lavender lemonade is our go-to beverage for spring and summer bridal showers; delicious with or without alcohol, it’s an unexpected treat that guests will love.

Meyer Lemon Margaritas

If the countdown to Cinco de Mayo (we know, it’s ten whole months away!) has you craving a margarita this weekend, we recommend mixing things up a bit with Meyer lemons!  Meyer lemons are believed to be a cross between a lemon and a Mandarin orange; they are smoother, rounder, and a little sweeter than a regular lemon.

Flavored Water

After what feels like the longest winter ever, summer is FINALLY here… and that means it’s time to start enjoying summer refreshments!  If you’re planning a summer wedding or wedding shower, waters infused with fruit, vegetables, and herbs are a simple and elegant addition to your menu; plus, they are an easy way to keep the non-alcoholic beverages flowing at an outdoor event!
