Fall Cocktail Recipe ft. Red Spirits & Wine and Frozen Exposure Photography

Bourbon Maple Apple Cider

We teamed up with our friends (and neighbors) Frozen Exposure along with local spirits shop Red Spirits & Wine to create a fall cocktail! Red provided all of the spirits and garnishes we needed to create a fall-tastic drink – Bourbon Maple Apple Cider. Each bottle of alcohol used can be found at their local shop in Belle Meade. The bourbon has been aged and actually stirred by the rocking on an east coast ship in the ocean! We thought that was the coolest story and we feel honored to even have such a bourbon grace our Bodega glassware!  Plus, Red Spirits & Wine delivers! So if you’re planning your wedding or even your holiday party, remember Red can bring the booze straight to your event! Take a look at the photos Frozen Exposure captured of our recipe below and keep scrolling to find out how you can make this drink at home!

Lavender Sparkling Lemonade – Spring Cocktail Recipe

Lavender Sparkling Lemonade Spring Cocktail Recipe

We are so excited to share this feature series with you… we partnered with RED Wine & Spirits and Frozen Exposure Photography to give you a new cocktail recipe for each season!

Starting off, we have a new twist on a Sparkling Lemonade. Our goal was to bring out the Gatsby for Springtime, so we used our Embassy Champagne Bowls plus some of our assorted china and topped it off with a spritz of lemon to do the trick! Plus Steeplechase is coming up – this drink is perfect for this outdoor Spring event!

Frozen Exposure was kind enough to let us take over their studio upstairs from our Green Hills location for this shoot. Next time you visit us in Green Hills, you need to go up to the 3rd floor and visit their studio – the glitter and unicorn decor is so fun and Tanya and Bobby are such amazing people! We’ve enjoyed getting to know them over the past few months.

Mark from RED was kind enough to carefully craft each cocktail for us. And with over 30 years of bar tending experience, needless to say, he knows what he’s doing! RED provided a mix of local and foreign alcohol for us to create these wonderful cocktails. We highly recommend visiting their shop in Belle Meade for alcohol for your wedding, event or even your home liquor cabinet. 🙂

Without further ado, here’s RED’s take on the Lavender Sparkling Lemonade Cocktail!

This year we are featuring some of our friends in the Nashville wedding industry. And we chose to shine the light on Southern Sky Event Lighting to break the ice!

We’ve worked on countless events with owner, JD including our winning ISES Box Truck Competition design. Plus, we’re neighbors at our Loft at Houston Station location!

Without further ado, here’s our interview with JD!

What made you start Southern Sky Event Lighting? 

I have background in lighting and have always done lighting with my DJ services. Working with many planners around Nashville, they started asking us to do more lighting at events. So in 2011, we started Southern Sky to provide more lighting options for brides and planners.
