A hot party always starts with delicious cocktails. Whether you are entertaining your favorite bachelorette at home or making some cocktails before heading out for your big night, great cocktail recipes are a must! You can make some old school cocktail favorites or cocktails that are served in the hottest clubs. Whatever cocktail recipes you’re looking for, you will find them here at Hot Bachelorette!
Sometimes when enjoying a delicious cocktail, the amount of alcohol can be disguised by the sweetness of the drink. Stick with the measurements in the recipes. If you are not a professional bartender, you may inadvertently make your drinks far more potent than you responsibly should. It is always a wise to follow the suggested allotments in the recipes to keep the drinks tasty and to keep the bachelorettes safe!
Before getting started with the cocktails, one thing to consider is that there is no such thing as a party without Champagne (sparkling wine can be used as a substitute). See the separate section on Champagne by clicking HERE.
What you will need
Let’s start with some old school favorites:
Fuzzy Navel- a fun girlie drink from the 80s 1 oz Vodka (a citrus Vodka like Stoli Citrus will make the drink a little more tart) 1 oz Peach schnapps 1 oz sour mix 3 oz orange juice Can be served in a rocks glass with ice and a cherry garnish.
Blow Job – something that never gets old ¾ oz Irish Cream (Bailey’s) ¾ oz Kahlua Topped with whipped cream Pour the contents into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake slightly, strain into a 1.5 oz shot glass and top with whipped cream. Put the shot glass in your mouth, holding with your lips and throw it back in one quick shot – no hands allowed! Be careful not to get the whipped cream all over your face.
Purple Hooter – for a real blast to the past ½ oz of vodka (use Stoli Blueberi for a modern twist) ½ oz of black raspberry liqueur OR Chambord Splash of lime juice Splash of 7-Up Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and then pour as a shot into shot glasses (1 oz or 1.5 oz is the amount to pour)
Sex on the Beach - just be careful not to get sand in your knickers 1.5 oz Peach Schnapps 1.5 oz Vodka 2 oz cranberry juice 2 oz orange juice 2 oz pineapple juice Served in a “highball” or a tall glass with ice and garnished with an orange slice or a cherry.
For some drinks that are a little more standard but still delicious and fun to make, here are some solid favorites:
Chocolate Martini - always a huge hit with everyone 2 oz Stoli Vanil ½ oz Godiva Chocolate liqueur ½ oz White Godiva white chocolate liqueur Splash of heavy cream (to make it more decadent) Chocolate syrup lined rim or chocolate syrup lined martini glass Shake in cocktail shaker with ice and pour into the chocolate lined martini glass. Garnish with a strawberry.
Apple Martini – always a sweet & sour treat 2 oz Stoli Citros 1 oz apple liqueur or Apple Pucker 1 oz pineapple juice 1 oz sour mix or lime juice Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a thinly sliced apple OR a cherry.
Creamsicle – tastes just like you remember 1 oz Stoli Vanil 1 oz Stoli Ohranj 3 oz orange juice 1.5 oz cream Shake in cocktail shaker with ice, mix very well but don’t shake it too hard. Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with an orange slice.
Cosmopolitan – a classic never goes out of style 2 oz Stoli Citros 1 oz triple sec OR Cointreau ½ oz fresh lime juice 1.5 oz cranberry juice Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and pour into chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. You know you’ve mixed your Cosmo correctly if the cocktail is light pink when served in the glass. If it is too dark, add a splash of lime juice.
Margarita – how can you say “no” to a Margarita? 2 oz Tequila 1 oz triple sec (substitute Blue Curacao for an “electric blue” margarita) 1 oz fresh lemon juice 1 oz fresh lime juice You can substitute margarita mix for the fresh lemon & lime juice but the fresh stuff always tastes better
The modern Margarita can be served in many ways: Blended with ice for a frozen margarita On the rocks with a salt rim Chilled in a cocktail shaker with ice Strained and poured into a chilled martini glass.
Margaritas have been around a long time but there are many Margarita variations for you bachelorettes to enjoy. You can find many flavors to add to your margarita in a liquor store OR you can muddle some fruit and make your own. Here are some suggestions: Pear, Mango, Kiwi, Peach, Watermelon or Strawberries make for yummy margaritas. Just add about 1-1.5 oz, about 2 tablespoons, of pureed fruit or syrup depending on how sweet you like your cocktail.
Super hot, new drinks found in trendy clubs and restaurants, be the first to show off your new bar-tending skills to your bachelorette!
Strawberry Fresca Martini 2 oz Stoli Strasberi (strawberry flavored vodka) 1 oz triple sec 1 small handful of strawberries muddled with 1 tablespoon of sugar Splash of lime juice Splash of guava juice Shake in cocktail shaker and serve in a rocks glass over ice. Garnish with a fresh strawberry.
Pink Taco 2 ½ oz Stoli Ohranj ½ oz Cointreau or triple sec ¼ oz Sloe gin ¼ oz Grenadine 1 oz orange juice Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and pour into a martini glass, garnish with an orange slice or a cherry.
Remember, fresh ingredients make the hottest drinks. Make sure you have an accurate headcount and the proper amount of alcohol and glassware for everyone. A good rule of thumb is 3 ounces of alcohol per person or three cocktails per guest. Remember, safety first. Don’t over pour your alcohol and don’t over-serve your guests. Put a little bit of love into each drink and you will please even the most discerning bachelorette. And most importantly…have a fabulous time!
