We are leaving you for the weekend with a drink recipe that Alisa Lewis Event Design created, continuing with this morning’s tablescape. Bits of gold also carry through drinks, as seen here with a gold sugar rim that Urban Rose Photo captured for us!

Place a ring of Agave or honey on a plate in a circle shape about the size of your glass. Place sugar crystals on another plate.

Dip glass upside down in agave and then directly into sugar. Tip and turn in the sugar to coat the rim evenly.

Pour whiskey over syrup. Add crushed or torn mint leaves. Place the scoop of peach sorbet into the liquid. Top with sparkling water and a few more mint leaves to garnish. We layered this drink but you could blend in a shaker.

  1. This drink is so beautiful, I dont even know if I would want to drink it. What a classy way of incorporating a beverage into the theme of your event. I love the golden sugar and the coloring of the drink. The photographs really capture the beauty of this bourbon based drink.
