I recently hosted a bachelorette party for my BFF and included a champagne bar, with suggested drink recipes. If I told you what happened that night, I would have to kill you. But, I can tell you the champagne bar was a big hit!
My first learning from that night is that I will have a champagne bar at every party I ever throw. Here’s the amazing transformation from hotel room desk to champagne bar:
My second learning? Blackberry champagne margaritas are the best drink ever. Also, it’s a bad idea to vigorously stir or shake champagne drinks. I’m not telling if I learned that one the hard way.
Here’s how you can make these up for your Cinco de Mayo party:
If you like a more traditional margarita, consider blending your margarita ingredients (tequila, triple sec, lime juice and/or margarita mix) with frozen fruit for some added flavor.
Here’s the 5 minute Frozen Fruit Margarita Recipe.
PS: Don’t be afraid to add more tequila since fruit dilutes the drink. In fact, never be afraid of more tequila (mwahahaha)!
Check it out in my best dollar store find EVER – beautiful, thick margarita glasses. Looking back, I wonder why I only got 4. Oh well, Dollar Store trip soon to see if I can hunt more down!
My third learning from that night is that you can meet all kinds of interesting people in Pittsburgh, including a guy who played with Mighty Mighty Bosstones (love them)! In 93. A few times. Gotta laugh. At least he had a hidden tattoo for our scavenger hunt!
Happy Cinco de Mayo friends!
