This time of year, we're always on the hunt for a cocktail to get cozy with, and this one from Sugar & Charm is a perfect twist on a true classic. This recipe mixes a little red wine into a classic Manhattan topped with some gourmet cherries. We dig it.
Red Moon Over Manhattan Cocktail Recipe
2 ounces red wine
1/2 ounce bourbon
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1 large round ice sphere
3 gourmet maraschino cherries
Shake all of the ingredients together with ice for 20 seconds. Rub orange peel around the rim of the glass. Add in the ice sphere, and strain the cocktail over the ice. Scoop one cherry to place inside the drink, and add two more on a twig or cocktail stirrer to garnish the glass. Enjoy this new classic!
As the cooler days and gray light of winter encircle us, we're thinking about colors that make us want to curl up and get cozy. Marsala brings warmth, while evergreen evokes the feeling of the winter season, and the addition of pheasant feathers is just brilliant. Consider what an envelope in a deep hue can add to your invite suite, and with a little metallic calligraphy, you're golden. A magical maroon garden rose, paired with wild greenery, like eucalyptus, makes for beautiful florals, and we're all about the surprising use of orchids alongside the roses on this romantic two-tier cake.
Elizabeth Dye slays us again with her high-neck lace Hattie Gown featuring a dreamy deep-V back. The silhouette is fully lined in duchess satin with a sweep train. The regal lace is fit for a queen.
Antique, old world textures like ornate brass and brushed gold, worn wood, climbing vines, and Juliet garden roses make a romantic pairing here. We love that this combination feels fall appropriate yet could extend into spring once winter fades.
The thing about flowers is that once gathered together they tell a story. Each story is unique given the bloom and placement, and that is a beautiful thing. Here a few pretty peach ranunculus play amoungest pink and red heritage garden roses, hanging red amaranthus, and a sweet mix of wild greenery. We can't help but love the story this bouquet tells.
This Cleo and Clemtine showstopper starts with a soft, silky charmeause fabric slip covered with a polka dot net tulle. The boned, lingerie-inspired bodice is elegant and a little sexy with built-in cups for ease.
This Cafe au Lait Dahlia tucked in with scabiosa, spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, Heart garden roses, and a few burgundy dahlia makes for the perfect fall bouquet. We love the pairing of blush and burgundy hues, it makes our hearts feel warm and full, as they should in fall.
These velvet bridesmaid dresses from ASOS are the epitome of fall. The dreamy texture, the high neck, and the almost-edible color are a trend we can definitel get behind. We love how the team at Bliss Events paired the burnt orange color with unexpected pops of pink and the bride's velvet choker brings the whole vision together.
