Tony and NIkole Beach


Nikole's: Blackberry Mint Mojito (makes one drink) But we made enough for 100:)
2 oz white rum
1 oz mint simple syrup
1 oz blackberry simple syrup
1/2 lime
4 oz sparkling water

Tony's: Bourbon Palmer (Makes one drink) But we made enough for 100:)
.6 oz vanilla black tea infused simple syrup (a little over a of an oz)
1.8 oz Jim Beam
oz of lemon juice
2-4 oz of club soda

Nikole's: To make mint simple syrup:
Add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, and 1 cup fresh mint sprigs into a medium pot and stir
Bring to a boil, then let simmer for 2 minutes, or until all the sugar is dissolved
Remove from heat and let the simple syrup steep with with the mint leaves for 20 minutes before straining out mint leaves
Chill and store in the fridge

To make blackberry simple syrup:
Add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water and 1 cup blackberries into a medium pot and stir
Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low
Mash berries with a fork or potato masher to release juices
Let simmer for 2 minutes
remove from heat and let steep for 20 minutes before using a fine mesh strainer to separate.
Chill and store in the fridge
(This also makes a super yummy pancake/waffle syrup!)

To make the Mojito:
Add ice, rum, simple syrup and juice from half a lime into a shaker and shake for 15 seconds.
Pour into a glass and top off with sparkling water and a fresh sprig of mint for garnish.

Note: you can also skip the simple syrup steps and tell them to muddle 4 blackberries and 12 sprigs of mint with 2 oz regular simple syrup in the shaker before adding the ice and rum and shaking. That's not how I made it for the wedding, but fresh ingredients are always better in my opinion!

To make the simple syrup, boil C water in a medium sauce pan. Remove from heat and add 4 vanilla black tea bags, add C of sugar. Return to a boil, then simmer and stir for two minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Cool in Fridge.
Add to the rest of ingredients and enjoy!

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Tony and Nikole got married a few weeks ago (September 20, 2019), I hope that some of their children are reading this recipe at some time:) They both decided at the "Cocktail Hour" of the reception that they would each have their own signature cocktail. These are the recipes they chose and I can attest that they were both great! One is sweet like Nikole and the other is bold and intense like Tony:) You decide your favorite for yourself:)
