Signature Cocktails…changing it up a bit

A lot of brides use the signature cocktail to match the color of your wedding but why not use it for something that you like anyway or something to match the class of your wedding day.  One of my favorite cocktails actually comes from Martha Stewart Weddings….

This recipe for lavender Champagne is featured in the Fall 2007 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.  You can make it at home to enjoy with the two of you – or have a professional make it for you on your wedding day!
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender
  • 4 bottles (750 mL) dry Champagne or sparkling wine, chilled
  • Fresh lavender sprigs, for garnish

Directions

  1. Bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in dried lavender. Remove from heat. Let cool completely. Strain out lavender. Refrigerate syrup until ready to serve (up to 1 month).
  2. Pour about 6 ounces Champagne and 1 1/2 teaspoons syrup into each flute. Garnish each with a lavender sprig.
