Finding a bridesmaid dress that is perfect for every one of your gorgeous “I do” crew ladies can be tricky. With everyone having different body types, one style might not look magical on everyone. We love the idea of every bridesmaid coordinating but not wearing the same exact dress. Luckily, Show Me You Mumu has the answer. Selling dresses of many different styles in the same material and pattern, this go-to online boutique can make every bridesmaid feel stunning on your special day.
This week, we are loving the presentation and warm flavors of cardamom-infused gin, the tart pucker of grapefruit, and the earthiness of rosemary mixed with the bubble of prosecco, all meeting in one delicious cocktail glass. This grapefruit-cardamom gin fizz drink may just be the signature cocktail you are looking to serve on the big day.
Grapefruit-Cardamom Gin Fizz
Infused Gin and Rosemary Syrup
1 c. gin
6 cardamom pods
1 c. sugar
1 c. water
2 rosemary sprigs
2 oz. rosemary syrup
3 oz. infused gin
1/2 c. grapefruit juice
splash of prosecco
rosemary sprigs for garnish
grapefruit peel for garnish
1.) In a small jar with an airtight lid, add gin and cardamom pods. Seal and store for 24 hours.
2.) In a small saucepan, bring sugar, water and two rosemary sprigs to a simmer until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and allow to cool completely. Remove the rosemary and use right away, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
3.) To make the cocktail, add rosemary syrup, infused gin, and grapefruit juice over ice in a cocktail mixer and stir. Using a strainer, divide the mixture in two and pour directly into glasses filled with fresh ice. Top with prosecco, and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a grapefruit peel. Cheers!
