We think every event worth celebrating should be marked with a Signature Cocktail, beautiful flowers and a scent to remember it by!

A great playlist and beautiful lighting are a must too! If you are looking for the perfect, simple signature cocktail for a couples baby shower this is it! This cocktail has the bourbon for the boys (or the girls like me who love bourbon), the bubbly for the girls, and the vanilla bean syrup simple syrup that is irresistible! Enough to make out taste buds tingle just thinking about it.

We loved everything about this party and our underspoken custom cocktail napkins with cream foil on white with the baby's monogram in one of our Signature Collection designs complimented the decor and tone perfectly. We're not sure what the offiial name of this cocktail is, however, for this party, it was named the BOURBON BABY! And BABY, was it a hit!

Someone commented on our Instagram post that it was simply called a Champagne Cocktail made by Bobby Flay so you may want to check it out there! Here's our recipe:

BOURBON BABY

1/2 C sugar

1/2 C water

1/2 vanilla bean split

Bourbon (something good; Bulleit, Blanton's, Woodford Reserve, Four Roses, etc.)

Prosecco (we use Lemarca)


Combine sugar, water, bean and seeds in small pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool to room temperature, then discard the vanilla bean (I did not strain it because I love the effect of the little black dot seeds floating around!) Add 1 shot of bourbon and 2 tablespoons vanilla bean syrup to a chilled champagne flute. Fill to the top with Prosecco, serve! SIMPLE and AWESOME!!
