White Party Cocktails

I wanted to share a couple fun cocktail ideas with you today from an event I designed this past December for a client that always hosts “white themed” holiday parties. This year they wanted to do a Delano hotel inspired” theme, which I of course LOVED since the Delano has a great contemporary vibe!

For the signature cocktails, we went with a Miami Mojitoserved up in a chilled martini glass instead of the traditional ice-filled tumbler – and a White Cosmofeaturing white cranberry juice in lieu of the traditional red.

The cocktails were shaken up by bartenders from The Party Goddess, (who did a great job catering the event as always!), and these gorgeous images were taken by the lovely and talented Gina Lee.
