Cocktails and Martinis for the Bachelorette Party or Bridal Shower

Cocktails & martinis for the bachelorette

The perfect colorful, pretty and tasty martinis and cocktails can add just the right vibe to a bachelorette party or bridal shower. All of the following cocktails are popular favorites, sure to please any crowd. And of course, the maid of honor may want to get together with the bride and/or bridesmaids to taste test each and every one of these before the bachelorette party or bridal shower rolls around!

The Maid's Mimosa:

  • One part orange juice
  • One part champagne or sparkling wine

This is one of the classic cocktails to serve at a bridal shower because it's nice and light as well as delicious. It's best served in a champagne flute, but can be presented in a wine glass. The maid of honor may want to have sparkling grape or apple juice on hand to make virgin Mimosas for underage bridal shower attendees.

Chocolicious Chocolate Martini:

  • 1.5 Shots Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
  • 1.5 Shots Creme de Cacao
  • .5 Shot Vodka
  • 2.5 Shots Half and Half

What group of women can resist a chocolate-based cocktail? This chocolate martini made with Godiva liqueur will class up a bachelorette party or bridal shower. The maid of honor should serve it in a martini glass and be sure to keep the half and half cold between servings.

Delightfully Pink Cosmopolitan Martini:

  • 2 oz. Vodka
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • .5 oz. Sour Mix
  • .5 oz. Cranberry Juice

The maid of honor might opt for this great pink girly cocktail. It's sweet, sour, and a swanky option for any bachelorette party or bridal shower. It is ideally served in a martini glass.

The Maid's Minty Mojito:

  • 3 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1.5 oz. Light Rum
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 3-4 Sprigs of fresh Mint
  • Club soda to fill the glass (chilled!)

Like the Mimosa cocktail, the Mojito is light and refreshing. The maid of honor could serve it for an outdoor bridal shower or as a warm up for the bachelorette evening activities. This cocktail is best served in a tall thin highball glass.

Amorous Appletini:

  • 1 Shot Apple Vodka
  • 1 Shot Apple Schnappes
  • .5 Shot Melon Liqueur
  • A Splash of Sweet and Sour Mix

This martini is the perfect precursor to an action-packed bachelorette party. It's sure to promote sweet feelings of giddiness among the bridal crowd. The maid of honor should serve this in a martini glass.

Fabulous French Horn:

  • 1 oz. Vodka
  • .75 oz. Chambord (Raspberry Liqueur)
  • .5 oz. Lemon Juice

This is one of my all-time favorite cocktails. It's sweet and sophisticated (just like me...well, I like to think so!). Served in a martini glass, the maid of honor guarantees a successful bachelorette party with this one!
