We’ve read, tasted and tested, so you didn’t have to. Here’s a few of our faves.
The REAL Anti-Bride
A smart and sassy alterna-bridal book series that gives brides honest guidelines to “tying the knot outside of the box.” The three book series is a side-splitting hilarious convoy to all things wedding. From the Etiquette Guide –The Rules and How to Bend Them – showing gals how to get exactly what they want, without ticking everyone off in the process, to the Anti-Bride Wedding Planner - giving helpful tips, honest content and chapters on dressing, drinking and do-it-yourself. The writing is raw, uncut and doesn’t beat around the bush. If you don’t have this book series, hightail it to your nearest Barnes & Noble today! Antibride.com
Not Your Grandpa’s Drink
A hip blend of ultra-premium French vodka and blood oranges with a hint of mangos, and passion fruit, X-Rated Fusion Liqueur is as pretty as it is yummy. Kick off your modern-hen party with a signature cocktail such as the “X-Lover” (1 oz X-Rated Fusion Liqueur®, 2 oz pineapple juice, strain into a highball filled with crushed ice then top with soda) or maybe a “Last Temptation” (½ oz X-Rated Fusion Liqueur®, ½ oz cranberry juice, shaken over ice and then strained into a shot glass). For a wedding appropriate signature cocktail, try the “Xchange of Vows” (1 oz X-Rated Fusion Liqueur®, 2 oz Club Soda served on the rocks and garnished with a lemon). Anyway you mix it up, it’s sure to be delish! Xratedfusion.com
