Spring is just around the corner and there is nothing better than sipping on a refreshing, colorful cocktail.  Not only will your guests enjoy these delicious beverages, but the colorful drinks garnished with a touch of fruit add a beautiful and personal touch to your decor.  We spent some time bartending at the office, and came up with these four tried and tested cocktails that are sure to be a hit at a shower, bachelorette, or wedding festivity.

Grape Fizz

GRAPE FIZZ

Ingredients:
1 part Club Soda

Why we love it:  It’s a functional drink – the frozen grapes act like ice.  And, it’s such a simple cocktail to put together that will look stunning on a bar – imagine a whole table of them! You can even use purple grapes for more variety.

Raspberry ChampagneRASPBERRY CHAMPAGNE

Ingredients:
Your favorite Champagne
Raspberry (or any berry of your liking)
Serve in: A champagne glass! Garnish with a raspberry on the rim, or drop the berry into the cocktail and let it float.
Why we love it: It’s an incredibly simple way to spruce up the classic toasting drink.  And, we especially love how the berry bleeds into the champagne to give it that perfect pinkish hue and ever so slight berry flavor. Besides, you can never go wrong with a glass of bubbly at a wedding.
