Elegant accent pieces of manzanita wood, jazzed with ivory peonies and white orchids, frame the bar where sand-blasted grapewood cradles pastel flowers and succulents next to pops of mercury glass. A romantic and sophisticated setting perfect for your cocktail hour. The signature drink of the night is the “Blushing Bride” made with blueberry vodka, sweet and sour, and topped with champagne. Find the recipe below.
Blushing Bride: Combine 5-6 muddled blueberries, 2 parts Stoli blueberry vodka, and 1 part homemade sweet and sour mix (3 cups water, 3 cups sugar, stir over medium heat and let cool). Add 2 cups of fresh lemon and lime juice, and chill until cold. Add a splash of champagne.
