That Cocktail!

Was divine.
A lovely touch for last month's Wedding celebration.
{I may have made a few small batches since}
A shot of bourbon, a sage-from-the garden based syrup, and a splash apple cider.
Served over ice in these awesome custom cups made for the occasion by Pink Poppy.
Add a branch of rosemary from that very same garden and we had a
perfect local fall flavor beverage that the party guests loved.

Ginny the bartender was awesome

For the wine and beer lovers, there was plenty.
We had been stockpiling for months,

the old coal storage bin in the cellar makes for a great cooler

and collecting purposely mismatched thrift store wine glasses at every opportunity.

My kate's old doll cabinet turned wine glass cabinet.

Each guest could choose a unique glass for the evening to refill as often as they liked.
No wondering whose glass was whos!

Planning a wedding is so much fun.
So glad Tommy and Chelsie entrusted some of the details to me.

I need a new big project!


Sage Simple Syrup

1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup honey
1 cup water
one orange sliced
a big handful of fresh sage leaves 

Combine all in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer a few minutes until sugars are dissolved.
Strain when cooled.

No wonder why I love you!
Brilliant . . .
Love the "very own wine glass idea!"
And the cider cocktail in a Lindenberry glass . . .
And the stock pile . . .
Oh my . . .

That drink sounds delicious! I would definitely trust drink planning to you, anytime. Also, I love the furniture set up for the bar.

Sounds fantastic, I too love the bar area, and the mismatched glasses such a great idea. I know how you feel about having a large project. After Rachel's wedding I felt the need to do something, but somehow that goes off after a while!
