Holiday Bazaar at The Wedding Space

Boy did I have fun serving up some drinks at The Holiday Bazaar on December 4th.  The Wedding Space is a great group of wedding vendors including myself with my other business Memory Making Events.  We decided to put on a holiday shopping day for locals by locals but also create a fun filled day with cocktails, coffee, a sweet lounge by Avenue Twelve Rentals, a fire pit and some games.  This event was so successful and it was filled with laughter, joy and warmth.  

My signature cocktails of the day were the Tipsy Elf and a Ruby Red Grapefruit Spritzer.  I also served up some Mimosas, Apple cider, and a fantastic Gingerbread Stout by Golden Road Brewing.    These Signature cocktails were a huge hit!  Especially the Tipsy Elf.  See the Recipes bellow. 

Tipsy Elf Recipe...... 1 oz Apple Cider Simple Syrup (boil apple cider for 10 min and simmer for 4 hours) .....  3oz Spiced Dark Rum .... splash of Bitters ..... in a shaker with ice ..... shake and pour over ice ...... top with sparkling water .... pomegranate seeds and a cinnamon stir stick for garnish.

Ruby Red Grapefruit Spritzer Recipe.....  1 oz Sugar in the Raw Simple Syrup .... 3 oz Vodka .... Fresh mint leave ..... squeeze of fresh lime .... 6 oz Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice (i get mine from Trader Joe's) .... in a shaker with ice ..... shake and pour over ice ....... top with sparkling water ..... pomegranate seeds, lime wheel and fresh mint for garnish. 

Here are some photos from the event

Open For Business

We were so happy to make this leap into yet another business adventure.  I, Samantha Ward, of Memory Making Events have decided to purchase the bar end of the SLO Coast Coffee and Catering.  Lisa, owner of SLO Coast Coffee, is forfeiting events to pursue her dream of opening a coffee shop (coming this Dec-Jan).  I had the pleasure of bartending some of her events while having weekends off of wedding coordinating.  I fell back in love with bartending after leaving that job title behind me 5 years ago.  Why not do everything you love... right? Well just a few months later and here I am, the proud owner of a new business Saúde Mobile Bar.  I can't wait to get started with serving more clients and their guests.
