Spice Up Your Next Gathering

 By Kristen-Leigh Sheft

It can be tough finding interesting ways to host your clients or friends.  LEGACY Events recently planned a truly unique cocktail reception for one of our clients, so we thought we would share it with our blog readers.

As a take on the recent article, Spirits of the South, as seen in Garden and Gun magazine, we helped our client host their VIPs for a unique cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres reception at The Southern in downtown Nashville.

The soiree featured several southern spirits like Belle Meade Bourbon, Tito’s Vodka, Popcorn Sutton’s to name a few, with guests sampling unique recipes that included these distilleries.    

We welcomed Nelson’s GreenBrier Distillery and the two brothers / co-owners, Andy and Charlie Nelson, to attend and mingle with the crowd.  After re-establishing the family’s business in 2009, brothers Andy and Charlie Nelson have helped make Belle Meade Bourbon one of the distillery’s signature brands used in Old Fashioned recipes across the city.  The Southern created a signature cocktail, the Belle Meade Old Fashioned, using Belle Meade Bourbon as one of many showcased to the guests.  

If you are looking to add fun and flavor to your next gathering, try the recipe we did for this event as it was hit.

The Belle Meade Old Fashioned

1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp. water
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 slice orange peel
2 oz. Belle Meade Bourbon
Maraschino cheery

In an old-fashioned glass, muddle the sugar, water, bitters, and orange peel together until the sugar has dissolved. Fill glass with ice, add whiskey, and stir. Garnish with a cherry.
