fun with food!

We gals at Yellow Press love a good time. We also love mini versions of food. "One Bite Wonders" we like to call 'em. Today we've put together a little roundup of some of our favorite pint-sized wedding foods. Are you hungery yet?

smashing! cocktail friday: the honey badger (and 100th post!)

Today's cocktail recipe comes from none other than the fabulous and talented Bri Emery.  Bri posted this recipe on her blog, Designlovefest awhile back and we couldn't resist sharing it with you lovely readers.  Aside from the name (because, really, who wouldn't want to drink a cocktail named after that crazy mammal?!), we think this recipe sounds delish, like the perfect way to begin August.


Ingredients


1 orange sliced into wedges
1 bottle champagne
1 oz. St. Germain
1 oz. honey syrup

Preparation


For the honey syrup:
Heat 1 cup honey and 1 cup water in a pan, stirring until it simmers then remove from heat.  once cooled you can pour it into a cute jam jar or glass bottle and store in the fridge.


Add 1 oz of the cooled honey syrup to your favorite cocktail glass
Add the St. Germain

Squeeze one of the orange wedges into the mixture and add the squeezed wedge to glass
Top off the glass with champagne
Stir and drink up!

smashing! cocktail friday: pink lemonade cocktail

In this heat, we can't think of anything we'd rather be drinking right now than a ginormous glass of pink lemonade.  Spiked?  Why yes, thank you!  We put together this little inspo board to go along with the recipe as an homage to some of our favorite summer moments of our youth:  hanging with the girls, sunning ourselves, and gossiping about boys.  Of course, sparkles and pink lemonade fit right into those memories.


Pink Lemonade Cocktail
serves 4-6 girlfriends at the beach! (shhhhh....)


Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup room temperature water
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 3 teaspoons grenadine
  • vodka (optional)
Instructions


Create simple syrup: Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and place the saucepan over medium heat. Stir the mixture occasionally to help it dissolve, if necessary, then remove the saucepan from the heat when the sugar has completely dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Pour the lemon juice (either fresh squeezed or store bought is fine) into a pitcher. Dilute the lemonade with the cold water, then add the simple syrup and grenadine and stir thoroughly to combine. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.

Optional: To create an alcoholic version, add vodka to taste and mix thoroughly before chilling. The recommended amount of alcohol is approximately 4 to 6 ounces, depending on how strong you prefer it.
