Rosé Sangria for National Pink Day

As you know, we are all about rosé here at LMP, and pink is our absolute favorite color. National Pink Day is coming up this Friday, and it felt like a very natural choice to create a perfectly pink cocktail to celebrate.

We also have 3 big events happening this week, so I decided to keep it simple and whip up some Rosé Sangria, using raspberries, strawberries and mint, with some blueberries for a hint of green and blue. This recipe is super simple and a refreshing way to kick off summer!

Here’s what you need:
-Rosé wine
-sparkling water or club soda
-sugar
-fresh strawberries
-fresh raspberries
-fresh blueberries
-fresh mint
-ice

Here’s what to do:
1) In a pitcher, combine 1 bottle rosé wine, 1 cup each of sliced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and 2 tbsp. sugar. Stir to combine ingredients, and leave to refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
2) After you have let sit, top with 1.5 cups seltzer, a cup of ice and a handful of ripped mint leaves.
3) Stir gently to combine, and serve, garnishing with a fresh mint leaf!

Boom! Super easy, right? This sangria is fresh and not too sweet – the perfect sip to cool down on these hot summer days.

Cheers, and happy #NationalPinkDay!

Until next week…

National Martini Day is coming up next week on Monday, and you know I needed to whip up something delicious to celebrate! Natalie helped me do some brainstorming and she found the idea for a peach martini on Pinterest, and I decided to incorporate my favorite fruit into the mix – raspberries! So, introducing… my Peach Raspberry Gin Martini.

Here’s what you need:
-gin
-fresh peaches
-fresh raspberries
-cranberry juice
-fresh mint
-ice
-blender

Here’s what to do:
1) Combine 3 oz. of gin, 2 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced, 2 oz. cranberry juice, and ice in blender.  Blend until you reach smoothie consistency.
2) Pour mixture into each cocktail glass.  Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint!

Hope you enjoy this refreshing, fruity cocktail and that it gets you in the spirit for National Martini Day… Cheers!

Until next time…

First comes Love, then comes the Baby…

We plan a lot of bridal showers here at Little Miss Party and honestly? It’s our favorite party to plan. Our brides are so excited to get married and we get to make their bridal shower party dreams come true.

9 times out of 10, our brides call us a few years after the shower and ask us if we can plan their BABY Shower! First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby with the baby carriage!

A year later, we get another call…time to celebrate Junior’s first birthday! Can you please style the party?!

With that, we quickly realized there are folks who don’t live in NYC and cannot use our services, so to reach these people and ensure they are having a party just as pretty as the ones they see on our website, we launched Little Miss Party in a Box.

LMP in a Box has been around now for two years. We receive the most wonderful feedback from our customers who tell us that our party boxes “saved” them! A few of our favorite notes…

What a party success! We used everything! Everyone was wondering how I had time to coordinate everything- I said I had a Little Miss Party in a Box for help! Keep in touch! Thanks a bunch! Xo

THANK YOU so much for bringing my birthday inspo to life! The room looked incredible with all the decorations for truly a memorable TWINNING birthday celebration that brought together our families in town from across the country. I cannot say this enough, we could not have had this type of birthday celebration WITHOUT your your amazing service and creative support. Everything from the custom flowers for the wall and the light up marquee hearts were just stunning touches to detail that added to the theme. There is just not enough time in the day and I am so grateful to have found your company. I hope to use you again for future party needs!
-Jayne Babine

Now we have new party boxes online and we’re so excited to share with you. Specifically today I’m super excited to introduce the new Little Miss Shower Party in a Box that you can drop down the menu to purchase as a “love” bridal shower box OR a “baby” shower. We’ve got new plates with the cutest party lingo, glitter utensils and our PARTY PEOPLE cups which you can now buy separately.

Whether you’re planning a shower or a birthday party for a child or a grown up, we’ve got you with our one-stop-shop party boxes.

Cheers!

Rosé Margarita with Wölffer Wines

As you know, we at LMP love our wine, and are loyal to our favorite wine makers! One of our favorites is Long Island-based Wölffer Estate Vineyards, who make the gorgeous “Summer in a Bottle” wines that you have probably seen on Instagram.

We also include bottles of their brilliant Rosé Cider in our For the Hostess Gift Box, which any hostess would be excited to receive! That’s why, when they sent us a few bottles of their incredible rosé, I was so excited to get to trying out some cocktail recipes in time for #NationalRoséDay, which is this Saturday, June 10th.

So, without further adieu, i’m excited to introduce you guys to… my Rosé Margarita!

Here’s what you need:
-bottle of Wölffer Estate Finca Rosé table wine
-silver tequila
-cointreau
-fresh limes
-coarse or kosher salt
-ice
-cocktail shaker

Here’s what to do:
1) Using lime wedge, wet rim of cocktail glasses. Salt the rim using coarse salt.


2) In cocktail shaker, combine ice, 1 oz. cointreau, 1 oz. tequila, 4 oz. rosé and the fresh juice of 1 lime. Shake well.


3) Pour into each cocktail glass on ice. Top with more rosé if necessary!
4) Garnish with lime wedge, sip, and enjoy!

This is definitely going to be my drink of the summer… just imagine sipping this poolside in one of our new “Party People” shatterproof stemless wine glasses.  YES, please!

Until next week!

Spiked Cold Brew Coffee

It’s officially iced coffee season, and over Memorial Day weekend, I was inspired to make a more “festive” version of my favorite summer pick me up!

We had some Bailey’s lying around the studio after St. Paddy’s Day and I thought it would be a good idea to use it to spice up my cold brew coffee recipe.. and boy, was I right!

Here’s what you need:

-fresh cold brewed coffee (recipe here)
-Bailey’s Irish Creme liqueur
-ice

Here’s what to do:

1) Once you’ve made your cold brew coffee and let it sit in the fridge overnight, remove cold brew from fridge.  Add ice to each coffee glass.
2) Fill each glass almost full with cold brew coffee. On top of that, pour about 1 oz. of Bailey’s, or more if you have room.


3) Use straw to mix Bailey’s in, and add more if desired.

Since National Donut Day is coming up this week, I also added a little extra detail to this drink… a mini donut on the straw!

You can dunk the donut or eat it on its own. Either way, this coffee/ donut combo is an excellent way to start your morning off right this summer.

Hope you enjoy, and that you had an awesome Memorial Day Weekend! Cheers!

xx, Abby
