While I've been visiting home I've been eyeing up my sister's bar cart- wanting to find the perfect excuse to use it for a La Petite Fashionista post. You see when I'm home, craft cocktail making at happy hour is our thing. We love experimenting with different mix-ins to see what sort of deliciousness we can whip up.
I had the chance to sample a few of the Belvoir Fruit Farms Lemonades flavors & I knew it would be perfect to share. I'm obsessed with the beautiful branding of these lemonades (they look so gorgeous on a bar cart!), but they're organic & delicious too.
This mint & elderflower lemonade cocktail would be so perfect for entertaining with friends, or a date night drink!
Mint + Elderflower Lemonade Cocktail
1.5 oz (approx. 1 shot) Vodka
1 c. Belvoir Elderflower Rose Lemonade
4 Mint Leaves
1/4 c. Club Soda
In a cocktail shaker, add vodka & mint leaves. Muddle the mint leaves in the bottom of the shaker with a muddler or wooden spoon. Add lemonade to cocktail shaker & a few cubes of ice. Shake well & strain into a cocktail glass. Top off glass with club soda & stir well. Add mint leaves for garnish & enjoy!
Looking for a bar cart & pretty little bar accessories? I've rounded up a few of my favorites:
I recommend styling your bar cart with like cocktail napkins, shakers & stirrers. Try and stick within a similar color palette to make it feel cohesive (like this #allgoldeverything look). Check out the thrift stores for vintage decanters & glam cocktail glasses. I also love the look of a cheeky bar related print on your cart.
What's your go-to cocktail for happy hour?
