Drinks for Bachelorette Parties
August 22, 2018
Nashville has become known as one of the bachelorette party capitals of the country. With dozens of trendy bars, sightseeing opportunities, and unique attractions like the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Nashville is the perfect haven for bachelorettes looking to have a wonderful time.
The recent influx of tourism has unfortunately resulted in skyrocketing hotel prices for visitors, which has pushed many groups to find alternative amenities. East Nashville is a hotbed for Airbnb’s, the most popular way for many bachelorettes to stay. Having an Airbnb instead of a hotel does have its perks, however. Many see the benefit of having an entire house or condo to spread out, hang out, and celebrate. It’s also the perfect place to have a little pre-party or cocktail hour before hitting the Broadway bars.
We’ve compiled some of our favorite celebratory drinks, perfect if you’re staying in an East Nashville Airbnb.
Moscow Mule Jell-O Shots
Is any bachelorette party really complete without some fun Jell-O shots? This version is a little classier than your average frat basement variety and are fun for an adult celebration.
2 oz lime juice
8.5 oz ginger beer
6 oz vodka
2 packets unflavored gelatin
In a small saucepan, combine the ginger beer and lime juice. Sprinkle the gelatin over the surface of the liquid and let it sit for 5 minutes to “bloom.” Basically, it will soften and form a film on the top of the liquid that looks sort of wrinkled. Warm the mixture over medium-low heat for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Do NOT let the mixture boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the vodka. Pour the liquid into the prepared shot vessel. It is recommended to use a measuring cup with a lip to make things easier. Pop into the fridge for 4 hours or overnight to set. Voila! Classy bachelorette Jell-O shots.
Moscato Strawberry Pink Lemonade
This fruity and fun drink just screams “bach party”. It is super simple to make and can be adjusted for a crowd.
1 bottle Moscato
6 cups pink lemonade
¼ cup strawberry vodka
sugar (to garnish rim, optional)
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and chill. Rim champagne flutes or low-ball glasses with sugar. Pour over ice.
Strawberry Pineapple Mimosa
After a night out, you’ll probably want a little something light with your Nashville brunch. Whip up a batch of these Strawberry Pineapple Mimosas to get your day going.
1.5 cups orange juice
1.5 cups pineapple juice
1 bottle of sparkling wine (champagne or prosecco are best)
½ cup of strawberries
Combine both orange and pineapple juice. Pour into champagne flutes until each flute is half full. Top off glasses with bubbly. Garnish with several strawberries.
Tip: Freeze the sliced strawberries first to keep the mimosas cold!
