Spring is here, and we should celebrate! Host a fuss-free Spring cocktail party, with the help of a few pretty elements. It’s all about gorgeous hues and bright flavors!

Check ’em out, after the cut:

(Alcoholic) Drink: The Lillet Rose Spring Cocktail 

What’s lovelier in Spring than pretty flowers in your drink? Combine Lillet Rose, grapefruit juice and some gin. Top off with edible flower blossoms, and your cocktail is ready for consumption! The drink may look mighty pretty, but rest assured it’s gentlemen friendly too.

(Non-Alcoholic) Drink: Infused Water 

Start off the cocktail party, with something bright and healthy. Keep everyone hydrated, and serve something all-natural and fresh. Infused water is not only gorgeous to look at, it’s pretty tasty too! We love the Cucumber Strawberry Thyme Infused Water, which is also great with mint or basil. Let the ingredients sit for a bit, for a better and stronger flavor. More details here.

Eat: Parsley, Red Onion and Pomegranate Salad

It’s a cocktail party, so it’s all about light servings. This salad is so easy to make! We love that parsley plays a big role here, with help from sweet molasses and sumac. What’s sumac? It’s a versatile spice with a tangy lemony flavor, one that more balanced than lemon juice. Your guests will be pleased. Full recipe here.

(Sweet) Eat: Vendôme Macaron 

It would be a crime to visit Paris, and not indulge in amazing macarons from Laduree! If you haven’t, you can look for our vendor, Vendôme Macaron right here in New York City. The New York Times have even hailed Vendôme Macaron as the best and only macaron in the city to rival Laduree. We’re totally sold.

Vendôme Macaron are naturally gluten free, made with almond flavor and kosher coloring. Look out for awesome flavors such as Tuscan Sun, which is limoncello infused with fresh lemon puree as well as the Hemingway Mojito, with Anejo Reserva Cuban Rum, fresh lime and mint. Who says cocktails are for drinking?

Decorate: Hanging Succulent Centrepiece

If you’re up for a little decorating, and have time for a DIY project, get into this hanging succulent centrepiece. We love the use of fresh plants, and the three pillar candles in the centre. Get your full tutorial here. Don’t leave your lit candles unattended! Safety first, everyone.

Now you’re ready for a swingin’ Spring cocktail party!
