We designed this ballet-inspired signature wedding cocktail for our friend Lane' at Something Borrowed Portland Vintage Rentals. She'd been dreaming of a wedding styled around the delicate, feminine lines of ballet, and we were more than happy to come up with this delicious drink for her.
Using zester or paring knife, slice peel from lemon in long, thin spiral. Reserve lemon for another use and set peel aside.
In cocktail shaker, combine gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Add ice and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Strain into chilled Champagne flute and top with sparkling wine.
Curl lemon peel around finger to create twist at least 6 inches long. Garnish drink with twist and serve immediately.
Thanks to these great vendors for their work on this pretty little shoot!
