When HD Liquid Catering invited me to create a few special cocktails for a Shannon Rose event at Kendra Scott, I was tickled pink!
Pale blush and blue create a beautiful backdrop in this brightly lit store, but converting a blue hue into a cocktail can be bit of a challenge. To mimic the texture of the already vibrant stones in the store, Shannon requested a playful candy rim on one of the cocktails. PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur, sparkling wine, and few secret ingredients danced playfully in this bubbly magenta cocktail. Rhubarb flavored sugar gemstones created quite a buzz when dropped into the cocktail - adding to the essence and appeal.
Fresh and vegetal seemed like the perfect companion to a sweet and fruity cocktail. Sapphire Rain touted flavors of cucumber and fresh lemon, topped with Pellegrino and garnished with blue Meyer lemon sugar sculptures that upon contact with liquid slowly dissolved and left drinks adopting their shade.
Trish from Beatbox Portraits displayed such a natural ability to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the lens that I wondered if perhaps she was a talk show host or a comedian in a previous life. All photos in this post are compliments of Trish and I simply cannot rave enough about her ability, professionalism, and what a joy she was to have at the event.
A Betty (by a broad definition) is honest and brave, loyal and nurturing, witty and fun. She's balanced, quirky, open-minded, complex, and flawed. She's soulful and driven. And I think there's a little Betty in all of us.
