Nashville Lifestyle's Drink of the Month

We are thrilled our cocktail, The Max, is the drink of the month at Nashville Lifestyles. This tasty cocktail combines Jackson Morgan whipped orange with Afrohead rum and vanilla ice cream into a frozen treat that will remind you of your childhood. 

This drink is available at Kung Fu Saloon in Midtown Nashville. We might be bias, but this is the perfect drink to sip on during patio season.

Easter Brunch

It is hard to believe Easter is this weekend. We love this holiday to get together with friends and family and celebrate over good food and conversation. We had a great time putting together this Easter brunch last year. 

To host your own brunch, all you need are a few brunch staples such as quiche, sandwiches, fruit, biscuits, and of course cake. Use cake stands of varying heights to create interest on the table. These mini cake stands are a fun way to incorporate a place card. Keep the color palette simple with white dishes and a fun linen napkin. 

For cocktails, have hot and iced coffee available and your favorite Jackson Morgan flavors. Guests can create their own spiked coffee cocktails. We also love the idea of mini bottles as favors after the brunch is over. 

Cheers!

Bridal Shower Bar Cart

On Tuesday, I shared my bridal shower tablescape. Today I am sharing the bar cart. It is no secret I love a good bar cart. It is versatile for any occasion and can be used for cocktails, desserts, presents, or even just storage for glassware. I love that you can move the cart around depending on where the party goes throughout the evening. 

For this bridal shower bar cart, I used the space for favors, cocktails, and wedding books. I found these festive "from Miss to Mrs" cups which were perfect to hold a Jackson Morgan mini bottle with paper shreds. I made a mini version of the floral arrangement from the table for the bar cart. These adorable bamboo lanterns were a lucky Homegoods find.  

I had beverages on both the table and bar cart to keep the drinks flowing throughout the evening. I find if you use the nice drink ware such as these coupe glasses and a stirrer the drink instantly seems fancy. I found "cheers" drink stirrers in the Target dollar bin that were perfect for the occasion.

Bridal Shower with Jackson Morgan

Happy Tuesday! It is my wedding week and I could not be more excited. I threw a bridal shower to celebrate this new season. If you are like me, we have several weddings and events coming up this year. Check out our tips and tricks for hosting a bridal shower.

Decor

For the decor, I wanted to keep it simple. I stayed with a neutral color palette of gold and white with touches of blush. I love the idea of decorating with personalized pieces that the bride and groom can take home and keep as a memory of their shower. This Coton Colors platter with the "Going to the Chapel" attachment was the perfect piece to include as a gift. I used an array of white serving pieces including pieces from my Nora Fleming collection

I also love the idea of themed showers such as a fiesta or barbecue especially if it is a joint shower with the groom. You want to make sure you keep the couple's taste in mind. 

Food

For this shower, I kept to traditional food such as finger sandwiches, cheese, fruit, and an assortment of sweets. I used paper diamond cutouts found on Etsy with mini powdered doughnuts to create "rings". You could also use these for cupcake toppers. 

Find out what the bride and groom's favorite foods are and see if you can incorporate it into the shower. I love to pack a to go bag with leftover treats for the couple too. 

Cocktails

We had plenty of Jackson Morgan salted caramel cream for cocktails. I also had elderflower sparking lemonade. Many showers include a mimosa bar, but I love the idea of a coffee bar with different toppings and types of coffee. 

Stay tuned for more details from this fun shower.

You could create a toppings bar with rainbow sprinkles, whipped cream, mini cupcakes, and green candies. The frosting rimmed glass takes only a few minutes to create and adds a festive flair to any event. 

St. Patrick's Day Mint Milkshake

Ingredients:

2 oz Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in peppermint mocha

A few drops Green Food Coloring 

Vanilla Frosting

If needed, add more ice cream or Jackson Morgan depending on your desired consistency. Top with whipped cream. 

For frosting rimmed glass, use vanilla frosting to ice the rim of the glass. Press cereal into the frosting. Serve your milkshake in the festive glass.

St. Patrick's Day Bar Cart

St. Patrick's Day is next weekend! One of my favorite ways to celebrate different seasons and holidays is changing out the decor for my bar cart. How do you celebrate the seasons and holidays? 

For my St. Patrick's Day bar cart, I stayed with a gold and green color scheme. I also love the idea of a rainbow theme. I found St. Patrick's Day themed cookies and rainbow sprinkle cupcakes, which looked great with these green cake stands. The gold glittered champagne bottles added a nice touch of gold. Our salted caramel cream pairs well with sweets too. 

Happy Everything has fun attachments to decorate for the holiday. I love using the big bowl as an ice bucket. The Typesetter made the cutest "I'm Feeling Lucky" print. I change out art with different prints seasonally. One of my favorite details is the "W" moss letter I hung above the bar cart. 

Paper straws are an inexpensive way to change out decor, these green straws add a touch of fun to any cocktail. I love to stack my favorite entertaining books such as Pizzazzerie: Entertain in StyleDarcy Miller's Celebrate Everything!, and The Art of the Bar Cart at the bottom of my bar cart and change out with different party themes. You can shop this post below. 

Stay tuned for St. Patrick's Day themed cocktails coming next week.

Spiked Salted Caramel French Toast

Ingredients:

Loaf of Brioche Bread

1/4 Cup Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in salted caramel

Then add dipped bread to the skilled and cook until golden on both sides. Continue until all pieces of the bread have been cooked.
