Who doesn't love a good bachelorette party? Especially if it's a theme bachelorette party.
At the beginning of the summer, I made drinks for a 90's themed bachelorette party, held in a beautiful apartment rental in the heart of downtown Austin. Some of the girls wore their PJ's & we rocked out to pop music from my middle school days, while ongoing games of truth or dare & cootie catchers were thrown around. I created Fueled by Cocktails for events like this -- special affairs that deserve an extra special cocktail menu.
I was hired for this party by Meg of Everyday Meg. We've been blogging friends for a while, and met at last year's Texas Style Council, which was where the initial idea of Fueled by Cocktails came from. Meg & her friends welcomed me into their party, and it was such a great time!!
I served three drinks at the party... Each was based on something from the 90's, was super colorful & was made with the intended audience: girls doing girly things with other girls. (Sorry, Scotch.)
First up was a shot with a Gushers thrown in the bottom. This shot features Loopy vodka, rum & Midori. I added some lime juice to cut the sweetness. The Gushers in the glass just adds a little extra challenge at the end (because it tends to get stuck in the bottom) but the challenge led to extra giggles, so it's worth it.
Lisa Frank Fizz
I couldn't go to a bahelorette party without bringing some champagne with me. In my opinion a party isn't a party without something sparkling being passed around. The addition of pink edible glitter, strawberries, Ruby Red vodka & blood orange bitters is just what makes the champagne a cocktail. We went through an entire bottle of champagne in less than 30 mintues, but luckily I always travel with two bottles. Because when you run out of champagne, the party is over.
See the recipe to make your own Lisa Frank Fizz here. I suggest you also pick up some Lisa Frank stickers to play with while drinking this cocktail. It just somehow makes things even better.
Kel's Orange Soda
What would a 90's party be without some sort of Nickelodeon reference? We played with the idea of slime, but really... who wants to drink something gloopy and green? So we opted for something prettier but just as culturally significant: Ke's Orange Soda. Made with whipped cream vodka & a splash of vanilla creamer, it's soda with pizzazz.
A big thank you to Meg for the pictures & the opportunity to have some fun!
If you'd like to hire me for your next party, let me know. I offer a variety of services through Fueled by Cocktails, even if you don't live in Texas.
