Another Thursday, another 'top picks' post from me, this week is all about the pretty drinks for your wedding day or in-fact any other event you may be hosting (or perhaps just because it's been a bad day!)!
I was scrolling through Pinterest the other day (losing more time on there as usual!) and I spotted some beautiful looking cocktails and, as I was rather hot from this amazing weather we are having here in the U.K, I really got stuck into looking for refreshing drinks. I should point out that I only drink about four times a year maximum, but I still got sucked into the Pinterest void, for good reason though... just look how pretty! I can just imagine your guests faces when you serve up one of these!
One - Strawberry Gin Smash (from thekitchn.com)
Whilst I am pretty sure that this drink, if made by me, would look nothing like the picture, I can also imagine it would look super cool at a summer wedding too (just made by someone a little less heavy handed then me perhaps!).
Two - Elder Flower Gin & Tonic (from craftandcocktails.co)
Now that I am typing up this post I realise that it is gin heavy... oh well! This more simple cocktail is so cute (plus I love the glass!).
Three - Blackberry & Mayer Lemon Gin & Tonic (from spoonforkbacon.com)
Aesthetically speaking, I think this one it my favourite. It looks delicious doesn't it?
Four - Spicy Grapefruit Margarita's (from fitfoodiefinds.com)
This is one for people who love a bit of a 'kick' from their drink! It's not every day you see jalapenos in your drink is it?
Five - The 'Love Potion' Cocktail (from jacquelynclark.com)
This cute little number is basically just blackberries and prosecco, so it is super easy to put together, it is all in the presentation!
Six - Rosemary, Grapefruit & Gin Cocktail (from tellmetuesdayblog.com)
Grapefruit makes for such a pleasing appearance in a cocktail doesn't it! The recipe for this one show you how to make your own rosemary syrup for this drink (posh huh?!), but is otherwise very easy to put together!
Seven - Unknown Name (from Pinterest)
Eight - Apple & Lavender Mojito Cocktail (from jojotastic.com)
I am a little obsessed with lavender, so when I saw it popping out of the glass on this cocktail I had to chose it for my picks this week! This time we have ditched the gin and grabbed some rum and mixed up what sounds like a delicious combination of ingredients to create this beauty: apple juice, fresh lime juice, lavender mixer, rum and mint leaves and apples for presentation... yum!
Nine - Cotton Candy Champagne Cocktails (from Kirbies Cravings)
For anyone with a sweet tooth this one is heaven in a glass really! Champagne and candy floss? Yes please!
I could honestly spend the day looking at gorgeously put together drinks, even though I rarely drink, but these beat my teenage favourite of a 'woo-woo'! What is your favourite cocktail? I would love to know... maybe I should make some and have a taste test!
