5 Hosting Essentials for a Black Southern Belle Summer Party

 

From our favorite glasses to the best skinny margarita  recipe, the hosting experts at Blueprint Registry, have helped us put together a guide for celebrating summer in the South. If you are planning a wedding or dinner party this summer, these hosting essentials and margarita will make you the belle of the ball at your next gathering. Here their top picks for cocktail essentials:

 

  1. Garcia Margarita Glass ($11.95): These glasses recycled from tequila bottles will be sure to give your margarita new life. Under $12 dollars, you can have one too many without worrying about breaking the glass and breaking the bank!

  1. Vitamix Professional 200 Blender ($399.95): Frozen margs have never tasted so good. You’ll have your guests thinking you made a trip to a Mexico when serving with this high-class blender!

  1. Speakeasy Metal Cocktail Shaker ($39.50): You won’t have to worry about Prohibition when using this 1920’s inspired cocktail shaker to make margs on the rocks so good that have your guests asking, “is this legal?”

  1. Farberware 3 Piece Essential Kitchen Cutting Boards ($9.99): What’s a margarita without a lime? Keep this holiday festive and include a slice of lime on every glass to make this a real fiesta.

  1. Mid-Century Bar Cart ($349.00): You’re going to need a place to store all of those (soon-to-be empty) tequila bottles. Why not show them off on this chic bar cart for all to see?

Now that you’ve got all the essentials to for hosting a Summer Cocktail Party, be sure to check out this delicious (and guilt-free) Skinny Margarita from Simply Real Health aka…all the fun minus the sugar overload!

Sarah’s Classic Healthy Margarita from the Simply Real Health Cookbook

Serves 2

Notes: This recipe is one of Sarah’s favorite cocktails any time of year, and can be easily tweaked to add other fun flavors. Try muddled blackberries, infused jalapeño tequila, lemons instead of limes, or a splash of ginger kombucha or fresh-pressed beet juice. Garnish with extra lime wedges or wheels.

3 ounces high-quality tequila

2 limes, juiced

2 splashes of Cointreau

6 ounces club soda

Split ingredients between two glasses adding in this order: club soda, tequila, lime juice and Cointreau. Stir well. Add ice and extra limes wedges to serve.
