Ok, If you haven’t noticed I am overly obsessed with Bachelorette Parties lately because I am heading to Vegas in a Couple weeks for a friend’s bachelorette party. Not only do Bachelorette parties become more fun when they are a friend’s bachelorette party, but when you get to celebrate it in a city like Las Vegas, you are definitely going to have a fabulous and amazing time!
Anyways, not only do I get to go to Vegas and get to go to a Bachelorette Party in Vegas, but right after we get to celebrate one of the biggest engagement holidays and single grrl and guy holidays Valentines Day so I figured, why not create a few drinks that work for both Valentines Day and for Bachelorette Parties and since I love Jones Soda, why not incorporate Jones Sodas in so we can also have alcoholic and non Alcoholic cocktails for everyone celebrating Valentine’s Day (whether they are with friends or a lover) and for everyone at the Bachelorette Party.
Ok, so when I was looking through the different Jones sodas and thinking about the holiday and events that I am creating drinks for, I thought about what all do they have in common and what can I do to tie them all together and also find colors that match the different types of drinks and occassions.
The things that I came up with and think about when I think Valentines, engagements and Bachelorette Parties are Red and Pink and White, Chocolate, Strawberries, Sex, Romance and Rings. Because of these and all of the fun flavors from Jones Soda, I had a ton of fun creating and designing a couple of drinks for Bachelorette Parties, Valentines Day and all use Jones Soda.
Ok, this first drink is the Chocolate Creme Martini.
The first thing to do, I always use the zero calories diet Jones Soda, is to take a Martini glass and drop a hershey’s kiss into the bottom of it. Next, pour in some dark creme chocolate liquor over the Hershey’s Kiss, the Hershey’s kiss is a surprise for the drinker, then mis Jones Cream Soda with Stoli Vanilla Liquor and shake it in a Martini Shaker. Next pour the Vodka and Cream Soda mixture against the side of the glass so it layers nicely with the chocolate below and you have one of the most amaizng and delicious looking drinks for chocolate lovers and they are perfect for weddings, bachelorette parties and Valentines….You can also hide an Engagament ring instead of the chocolate hershey’s kiss.
The next drink is either the Chocolate Raspberry Martini or Chocolate Strawberry Martini. Use whichever soda flavor and berry in the drink depening on your taste. This one can be served with or without the alcohol.
First take your Martini Glass and chill it. Then take a bottle with a point on the top to give you a thin line when you squeeze out liquid and load it with chocolate sauce. Now, make long ovals and swirls around the Martini glass with the chocolate and then put it back in the freezer if you can. Now take a martini shaker mix in cosmo mix or if you have a really good and thick strawberry or raspberry juice use that instead of the cosmo mix. Take either Raspeberry or Strawberry Stoli Vodka and then shake with ice in your Drink Shaker. Then take the cup with the chocolate out of the freezer and pour in the mixture. Then take a raspberry and drop it in the bottom of the drink or take a long stirrer and put a raspeberry on the top of it and let it sit over the rim of the glass. If you did strawberries then take a strawberry and put a slice up the middle to the middle of the berry. Then slide the berry over the rim of the glass and let it be the garnish, you can even pour a little chocolate or dip it in chocolate after you slice it to further make it a chocolate covered strawberry.
Take any of the clear or white Jones Sodas and just mix it with a Rose or a White or Yellow Champagne. Then just drop in your ring and propose or if it is a Bachelorette party, drop a penis lollipop or something a bit more bachelorette in since they already have a ring lol.
Anyways, I love mixing Jones Sodas with different drink mixes, especially with margarita and frozen drink mixes because it not only matches the sweetness of the mixes but it also adds a really fun bubbly taste and texture to the drinks,,,however sometimes the soda isn’t strong enough to overpower the mix and keep it sparkling so you may want to add champagne as well to the mix so it stays bubbling.
