If, like me, you are partial to a glass (or two) of bubbly, and also appreciate a refreshing cocktail on a sunny day, this is one you will enjoy! These loves of mine combined when we recently hosted a pink themed gathering (pre-isolation days, of course).

The highlight of the drinks menu was undoubtedly Jamie’s signature cocktail, the ‘Pink Gin Spritz’, which was a huge hit and the most raved about cocktail on the menu.

Not only does this refreshing cocktail taste absolutely delicious, but it actually slowly changes colour from clear to a graduated pink as you sip your way through it. Pretty cool, hey!

Ingredients
(80ml measurements for short glasses, 120ml for tall glasses)

  • 40ml Pink Gin (we used Beefeater)
  • Sparkling Brut 80-120ml
  • Sugar free lemonade 80-120mls
  • Ice
  • Frozen strawberries

Method

Place ice in the empty glass (my personal favourite glass for this cocktail is a stemless wine glass). Pour each liquid ingredient in to the glass, stir then pour frozen strawberries on the top to garnish (these will give you the graduated colour changing effect as you sip away!).

Ms Floral Says: Yum! This sounds so delicious, and I love the colour changing element too! What a conversation starter. Thanks Cara and Jamie!

About Brisbane City Celebrants: We are a modern, happy and passionate wedding celebrant duo that simply LOVE celebrating love!

Making each aspect of your wedding as personalised as possible can be tricky! Using a polaroid photo, old image or even a slide as a name tag will be a special keepsake for your guests, who will love your effort and thought.

What You Will Need:

  • Photo frames – you can use any sort of frame! Keep it small if it’s being used for a name tag. We’ve used these gorgeous hanging frames from H&M
  • Polaroid pictures – if you have the time, you can track your friends and family previous to your wedding (or perhaps at your engagement party!), snapping away in preparation. You could also ask for old images, or you can simply dig through your camera roll for some classic shots to have printed
  • Permanent marker

Step 1. Gather and sort all of your images. Clean the frames with glass cleaner and test out your pen on some paper.

Step 2. Place your chosen image inside the frame, and then write the name of your guest directly onto the glass frame. Most surface sprays will remove the marker if you make a mistake.

Step 3. Let the marker dry, then package away carefully to be placed onto the table as gorgeous name tags that both look great, and bring magnificent memories back!

Ms Floral Says: What a sentimental touch that works well with all styles of weddings! This is definitely a memorable favour your guests will treasure for years to come.
