Planning an engagement or wedding is a big job. BELIEVE ME….it’s another full time job. So let’s start with something that is pretty easy….cocktails. Belevedere Vodka has some great Emmy Awards themed cocktails, that I think will be a huge hit if one of these themes fits you.
Fans of Mad Men (nominated for 12 categories including Outstanding Drama Series), can toast the series with the “Draper-tini” – a classic Belvedere martini that evokes all the glamour and style of the 1960s era. If you’re addicted to Netflix’s political thriller House of Cards (Outstanding Drama Series and additional performer nominations), mix up the “Smithsonian” – a refined citrus-based cocktail in honor of Frank Underwood himself. If Breaking Bad (13 nominations including Outstanding Drama Series) is your show of choice, tip your hat to Walter White with “The Heisenberg,” a deceptively simple yet flavorful combination of Belvedere Unfiltered and fresh cucumber.
So mix these up and your guests will say “And the winner is….YOU”.
