Inspired by the Allemande Gown

What wedding is complete without a toast (or two!) to the happy couple? To celebrate the launch of our Spring 2020 gown collection, we’re sharing creative and colorful spring wedding cocktail recipes inspired by four of our favorite new gowns. We asked Steve Wildy, Beverage Director for Menus & Venues, to create the cocktails with classic, modern, romantic, and bohemian brides in mind.

This martini recipe reflects the timeless grace of
the classic bride, inspired by the airy silk Allemande Gown.

Steve tells us, “Understated and elegant, yet still stylish and head-turning, this is an easy-to-make martini with a delicious sweet citrus and floral character. Keep it minimalist with a citrus peel garnish or add a dramatic sugar and lavender rim for a bolder flourish.”

Cheers to you, classic bride!
