Spiked Ice Cream Sundae

Ice Cream Social

With the summer heat in full force, an ice cream social is the perfect way to cool off. Our family loves dining outdoors and using pool during the summer so a poolside party made perfect sense. Who doesn't love an ice cream party to bring out your inner child? We used Jackson Morgan to spiked all of the ice cream treats for the adults. 

Theme

For the color palette, I was inspired by sprinkles. I used bright tones and incorporated our Jackson Morgan stripe beach towels for guests to dry off after a dip in the pool. I had a bar height table with a vintage milkshake mixer and toppings for a build your own milkshake bar. At the table, I had coupe glasses with more ice cream toppings and Jackson Morgan as a centerpiece for guests to make ice cream sundaes. 

Decor

Since we were outside and ice cream can be messy, I kept the decor very simple. To keep with the theme, I used several items from Hester and Cook's summer line including the sprinkle place mats, sprinkle place cards, ice cream papers, ice cream gift tag, and green stripe runner. For the table, I had scalloped napkins, stripe coupe glasses, disposable plates, silverware all from Sugar and Cloth's new party line available on Amazon. I love these pieces, because they are pretty and disposable for a quick clean up. Nora Fleming's new melamine collection was perfect for displaying milkshake and sundae toppings. 

The Menu

For the menu, I had milkshakes and sundaes. We served salted caramel, banana split, and peppermint milkshakes. I added our favorite toppings such as sprinkles, brownies, cookies, chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, cherries, chocolate covered pretzels, caramel sauce, homemade whipped cream, and chocolate covered bananas. You can easily customize this with your preferred toppings. 

Stay tuned for more details from our ice cream social.

Favorite Bar Books

There is nothing I love more than a good book especially ones pertaining to hosting and cocktails! When I get in a creative rut, I flip through the pages and dream up dinner parties and decadent cocktails. I have quite the collection of entertaining and cocktail books. I change out the books throughout my house with different seasons and use them on my bar cart. The books add a nice personal touch to my home decor. It is also helpful to have cocktail books handy when hosting and mixing up drinks. 

A few of my favorites are Pizzazzerie's Entertain in Style, Katie Jacob's So Much to Celebrate, Vintage Cocktails, Winter Cocktails, Shake, Bourbon Desserts, Darcie Miller's Celebrate Everything, and Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert (my favorite!).

Summer Peach Fizz

Our friends at Old Dominick, a new liquor company in Tennessee, partnered with us to create a few fun cocktails. The summer peach fizz is one of my favorites, it is light and the presentation is the best part. You can shop this post below. 

Summer Peach Fizz

Ingredients:

3 oz Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Peaches and Cream

1 oz Old Dominick Honeybell Vodka 

1 oz Lemon Juice 

Egg White 

Directions:

To make this delicious cocktail, combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for several minutes, this is an important step you will not have the fizz part of the cocktail if you do not shake in a cocktail shaker long enough. 

Stain and pour carefully into a tall glass. Enjoy immediately. 

Cheers!
