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!

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.
