Kentucky Derby Mint Julep

It’s not always easy being a Texas girl living in Kentucky… but Springtime in the Bluegrass is beautiful!  And with the beginning of May, we get one of Kentucky’s most famous events, the Kentucky Derby.  Check out this video for a great, easy party drink- the Kentucky Derby Mint Julep.

Celebrating your love of the ponies and all things Bluegrass is really easy.  All you will need is a glass (preferably a silver julep cup), fresh mint, simple syrup, crushed ice, and your favorite fine Kentucky Bourbon.  Watch the video for details on mixing and serving this Derby favorite.

On a side note- my husband was very excited to come home to some freshly made mint juleps!  As a Kentucky native and lover of bourbon, he was impressed by how well this simple recipe turned out.  Keep this one basic.  Lots of people put effort into making their mint julep recipe unique and usually end up ruining it.  Just mix this one up, sit back, relax, and sip in the spring weather!

Christmas Party Cocktails

What goes well with adult themed parties?  Adult themed drinks!  And there is no better time than the holidays to spice up a party with a few themed recipes that will make your Christmas one to remember.  I’ve selected a few of my favorites to help you keep your Holiday Pure Romance Party or Christmas with the family “merry and bright!”

This “Santa Baby” cocktail uses cherry and orange flavors with a little (or a lot) of brandy to keep you sane and a little less sober when your crazy aunt wearing a holly wreath around her neck starts pinching your cheeks and telling you about how cute you were when you were little.

The “Christmas Snowball” is perfect to garnish with a candy cane (and looks a bit like a milkshake.)  It utilizes Irish cream, raspberry flavored liqueur, and grenadine to help you power your way through a National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation marathon.  In the words of the great Clark Griswold- “Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned, family Christmas.  No, no.  We are all in this together!”

Baby, it’s cold outside!  Put on a few extra layers with this Layered Christmas Jello Shots Cocktail.  It takes a little more work and skill, but jello shots are a perfect match for any Holiday Pure Romance party!  To quote the Grinch- “Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store.  Maybe, Christmas, perhaps… means a little bit more.”  I like to think that he meant adding a bit more vodka to the recipe, but you can make your own call on this one.

Make Your Pure Romance Party a Success

Pure Romance Party

​Alright, ladies! So you’ve got your Pure Romance girls’ night reserved and now what??? It’s simple, just follow these guidelines & I’ll help you host the BEST girls’ night ever!

1) First up …. Pick a fun theme! Whether you are looking to have your guests dress up or just want to set the party mood, themes help set your Pure Romance party apart and get your guests engaged & excited.

Open some wine, bake some brownies, and – VOILA – Wine & Chocolate party! Celebrating a birthday? Your Pure Romance party is a GREAT excuse to get your girls together and spoil the birthday girl!

Or maybe you’re looking for something a bit… different?

One of my favorite themes is Wine & Wigs – nothing says ‘party’ like donning some crazy wigs! Even *I* wear one for the demo! And you’re too never old for a Pajama Party! Make a contest out of which girl wears the silliest/sexiest/craziest pj’s & order in pizza.

I provide all my hostesses with a list of ideas but feel free to come up with your own themes!

2) Create your guest list!
The most successful parties have at least 10 – 12 women in attendance. In addition, invite about 20 other women since only one third of invited guests will usually attend. Can’t think of who you know? Fill out my form of 40 Guests in 4 Minutes to help! Ask your guests to bring friends (the more, the merrier!) for bonus entries to WIN PRIZES at the party!

3) Use invitations!
Social media is easy buuuuuuut….TRUST ME, if you want friends partying with you, CALL to personally invite & send them a paper or email invitation. Just send me your address list and I’ll gladly mail & email invites for you! Facebook has its place – and I do use it for party events – but the majority of your guests will never see the notifications so contact them *directly* to be sure they’re in the know about your upcoming girls’ event!

4) Outside orders
Wanna earn EXTRA goodies from me?!? Ask all of your guests that won’t be in attendance to help you earn everything on your wishlist! Collect orders before your party to count towards your FREE shopping spree and earn an additional $40 from me to shop with. Your guests can submit orders to the hostess or they can shop privately online 24/7 at http://www.prbyrachel.com.

5) Let’s get social!

I like to create a custom facebook event page for all of my hostesses, complete with a custom banner!  Get social and be active on your facebook pages and twitter.  We want all of your guests to be as excited about your party as you are.  And of course, you should definitely like my facebook page to stay updated on all of our fun Pure Romance events and promos: www.facebook.com/prbyrachelt

​There is nothing quite like a GREAT girls night in! Just follow my Pure Romance hostess road map and you’ll be on the way to your amazing party destination!

Bachelorette Party Drink Idea

Thinking of scheduling a Pure Romance Bachelorette Party?  GREAT IDEA!  These parties can be a lot to handle as far as planning  for food, drinks, and entertainment… so let your professional Pure Romance Consultant take care of the entertainment for you!  PLUS, a Pure Romance party is free, fun, and you can get some great hostess rewards and gifts to give to your bachelorette (or keep ’em for yourself, I won’t tell!)

I do A TON of bachelorette parties in the Lexington, Kentucky area, and I have lots of fun ideas for themes, decor, and even drinks to get your party started.  Check out this video for the “Mai Tai the Knot” cocktail.  It’s quick, easy, and delicious!  All it takes is a little dark rum, some amaretto, orange juice, pineapple juice, a splash of grenadine, and a little sugar around the rim of the glass.  Your guests will love it!

Pure Romance Bachelorette PartyWhy are Pure Romance parties perfect for your bachelorette last night as a single woman?  Pure Romance parties are informative and fun!  Most women that attend a Pure Romance Party go in with with unique expectations and leave feeling that they have been “educated, empowered, and entertained.”  No matter what you expect from a Pure Romance Party, here are the basics that you can count on.

First, hosting a party is easy, free, and fun!  After contacting a professional consultant, she will work with you to coordinate scheduling, planning, and inviting your friends.  You decide where and when you will host the party, and who you want to invite.  You can even choose a theme!  The best part is, as hostess, you will receive gifts and rewards from your consultant based on the party returns.  The more successful your party is, the bigger your FREE shopping spree rewards are!

During the demonstration, you will be able to feel, touch, and taste most of what Pure Romance has to offer.  It’s so much more fun than ordering from photos in a catalog and allows time for questions you may have about the products. A party normally lasts around three hours and includes a professional presentation of our products, games, and time for questions.  All of our consultants and extensively trained, and focus on educating our clients.  While we love to have fun, Pure Romance is very professional and classy.  From your wildest friend, to your shyest, we work hard to make every woman comfortable at our presentations.

After the demonstration, your guests are invited to order any products they want.  All shopping is 100% confidential. It takes place in a private room, separate from the party and the rest of the guests. Your Pure Romance Consultant can answer any questions you have about the products, and she will keep your complete confidence.  Most Consultants carry a large inventory to each party so customers can take their purchases home that night. If your Consultant does not have a product in stock, she will deliver your order directly to you within 7 to 10 business days.

Halloween Party Ideas

It’s fall in Kentucky, and in Lexington that means horse racing, college sports… and HALLOWEEN! This holiday is a Pure Romance favorite.  We love getting dressed up in costume, planning out some great parties, and cutting loose with some great friends…  After all, we are all TREAT, no tricks here!

Here is one of my favorite party theme ideas I have seen this season-  We call it Bite Night.  It’s a vampire-themed party (I know some of you are team Jacob, but play along anyway.)  And with the way that Hollywood is portraying vampires these days, costumes are sure to vary tremendously and EVERYONE can show up in costume!

punchMix up a batch of some blood-red cherry punch.  Add in some peeled grapes for a gory texture.  Stir ¼ cup light corn syrup with 1 teaspoon molasses and ½ teaspoon red food coloring in a small bowl.  Rub this mixture along the rim of the punchbowl, coating the rim and allowing the mixture to drip down the sides- SCARY!



fangsServe appetizers (garlic flavored, of course) on wooden stakes (tooth picks.)  Use plastics vampire fangs as napkins holders.  Complete the look by serving blood red velvet cake for desert!




SH1B26_Witchs-Brew_s4x3.jpg.rend.sni12col.landscapeMaybe you want to add a cocktail that isn’t so red?  Mix up some witches brew:

Ingredients: 1 (6-ounce) package lime gelatin, 2 cups boiling water, 3 cups chilled pineapple juice, 1 (2 liter) bottle chilled lemon-lime soft drink or ginger ale, 2 cups chilled vodka, optional, Special equipment:1 large black plastic cauldron (available at party or craft stores), 1 punch bowl that fits inside the cauldron, 1 plastic hand (available at party supply stores), sterilized in hot water, 1 block dry ice (available at supermarkets, ice cream shops or ice companies)

Directions:  Pour the gelatin mix into a large bowl. Slowly stir in the boiling water. Stir at least 2 minutes, until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in the pineapple juice. Let cool to room temperature.  Wearing heavy duty gloves or using tongs, place the block of dry ice in the bottom of the cauldron. (Dry ice will burn skin, so handle it with gloves and tongs and keep it away from kids and pets!) Use an ice pick to break the block into smaller chunks, if necessary. Fill the cauldron with just enough water to cover the dry ice. It will begin to “steam.”  Place the punch bowl inside the cauldron, on top of the dry ice. The cauldron will appear to be magically smoking.  Entrap the sterilized rubber hand between the cauldron and the punch bowl, squeezing it tight so the hand appears to be reaching out of the mist for help. Hot-glue the hand to the cauldron, if necessary, to hold it in place.  Carefully pour the drink mixture into the punch bowl. Slowly add the chilled vodka and lemon-lime soda or ginger ale. Stir gently to mix.
