Recipe | Pearseccotini

Imagine the backdrop of your fairy tale wedding bursting with rich colors like amber, auburn and gold? It’s no wonder more couples are swaying away from a hot sticky summer wedding day with bridesmaids sharing mini-fans and antiperspirant in the limo.

Not that I’m speaking from experience…

When lover.ly (a website part-Pinterest part-Google for wedding planning) contacted me to create a fall signature drink, I was truly flattered and definitely up for the challenge.

I’ve always found a customized drink that represents the couple adds an element of elegance and enhancement to the wedding experience.

When I was thinking of fall ingredients … pumpkin spice, butternut squash and pear were on top of the list. Pumpkin spice would have been the obvious choice and butternut squash belongs in a soup so the latter option sounded the best for a wedding concoction.

For an autumn nuptials, try this sophisticated Pearseccotini for your signature wedding drink featuring seasonal ingredients.
