Oh the fun events that just make your week.
I’m talking about Tuesday night here in Milwaukee where I stumbled upon blooms, a drink to dye for, and the sweetest Creative Director there ever was.
Have you ever made a flower crown before? Ever even worn one? Those answers were a no for me before I got invited to actually make one at one of the best locations in Milwaukee.
This is not a sponsored post. I could have happy hour at The Outsider every day if I could. The rooftop bar and lounge has a breathtaking view alongside cocktails that will change your life. What more could you want? And what a better spot than that to make adorable flower crowns?
I mean, when I walked in, I think I went into ultra blogger mode and took pictures of everything!
Let’s start with the sweets^^
Now onto the fun stuff!
Can I just say that making these was a lot easier than I thought. Which is a relief because I had a lot of Instagram posts riding on this. 😉
What was the specialty drink you ask?
It is called Persephone’s Great Return. I even have the recipe for you!
.75 oz Hendrick’s Gin
1 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
.25 oz St. Germain
.75 oz Rosewater Syrup*
.75 oz Lemon Juice
.2 oz Peppermint Tincture**
1.5 oz Coconut Water
Dried Rosebud, for garnish
Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Shake and strain into a coupe glass
Garnish with a dried rosebud
4 Bottles Rose Water
40 oz Granulated Sugar
8 qt. Simple Syrup
Combine all ingredients together and stir
200g Rishi Peppermint Tea
15 oz Twisted Path 100proof Vodka
Add all ingredients to a clean glass jar and close lid tightly. Allow to macerate for seven days. Shake daily. Strain solids with a chinois, strain small particles with cheese cloth, and store in a glass jar
I loved how it was a smaller gathering–it was much easier to chat with my blogger babes and get to know the new ones. We should all make this our part-time gig, because everyone’s crowns turned out so pretty!
Awe!! Such a spectacular photo!
I think mine turned out pretty decent. The funniest part of the whole thing was watching everyone getting used to HUGE flowers on her head! So funny!
La Tulipe, LLC is currently moving into their new home in Cedarburg! Once they are settled, you can order your flowers and schedule your next Flower Bar party!
Happy Friday!!! xo
