My Signature Bridal Shower Cocktails

August 21, 2018

While I’m still over here sifting through photos of my bridal shower to share with you tomorrow, there’s no time like the present than to share the two signature cocktails Field Guide created to serve on this very special day. The first cocktail is “Kaylee’s Paloma” which is a grapefruit and tequila based cocktail that was perfectly suited to my taste buds (my sisters sure do know me well). The second cocktail is called “The Garden Party” and it can be made both alcoholic and non-alcoholic with the addition of Seedlip. This cocktail is suuuper refreshing thanks to the cucumber, lime and mint and it certainly goes down a bit too easily. Thank you to Field Guide for creating these special cocktails and allowing me to share them!
