Winter Warmers from Forks & Fingers Catering

Forks & Fingers Catering by Design has crafted quite the menu of lively libations we at BLISS like to call winter warmers. So grab your cozy cable knit blanket, curl up on the sofa and toast to the season of hibernation with a tantalizing cocktail that will warm you from the inside out.

Event Manager and cocktail connoisseur Ali shares the inspiration for the 2018 winter cocktail menu as well as the [not-so] secret ingredients so you can make them too!

2018 is the year of the guilt free cocktail — say goodbye to simple syrups and sugary mixers. This year we are introducing fresh, local and healthy ingredients into our winter cocktails!

Exotic seasonal fruits, spices and fresh herbs are all the rage this season. Floral notes, such as rose and lavender, are also some of our go to cocktail elements! Skip the simple syrup and muddle some fresh fruit instead, or even add a touch of local infused organic honey to appease your sweet tooth. The use of coconut waters, homemade almond and hazelnut milks and even kombucha are all healthier ways to have fun with cocktails this winter season.

What is the beverage version of farm to table? Maybe, Sip to Season? Or since it is winter, shall we call these hibernation libations? Anyways, do not be shy this winter season — hit your local markets and play around with fun seasonal flavors this winter! Here are a few of our coveted winter recipes to help get your cozy on…

Floral Fantasy — Styled Shoot

Staying true to their aesthetic, the team at Flowers By Semia created a wild floral fantasy that evoked romance in an industrial setting.

Architecture and saturated color were their musings. “We wanted to play with an unexpected, saturated palette while staying true to the fiery tones inherent to the autumn landscape,” Semia Dunne of Flowers By Semia described. Deep fuchsia blooms and golden yellow ferns came together to form a beautifully untamed bouquet that rivaled the drama of the navy lace ball gown worn by the model. Beside her, an edgy metallic gown printed with teal and crimson velvet flowers was paired with a more textural bouquet of porcelain berry, yellow orchids, and other foraged flora. In the courtyard, a metal staircase overgrown with passion vines provided a natural canvas for a grand floral installation. Vibrant pink garden roses, golden ferns, burning bush, rusty rosehip branches, and bittersweet vines were added to the staircase creating the perfect setting for a passionate love story. The final chapter was an antique wooden farm table draped with smoky blue linen and decorated with copper tableware and an earthy centerpiece of aqua and mustered yellow flora.

“We love to design with nature in mind… to emphasize the natural movement integral to each bloom and vine, so we did it on a grand scale and chose a refreshingly bright palette for fall,” states Semia Dunne.
