Valentine's Day weekend may have come and gone but that doesn't mean that the celebratory cheers and beautiful drinks have to depart us as well! There's something special about styling and creating beautifully crafted drinks. I initially shook up and photographed my Whisk(ey) Me Away cocktail to participate in SF Girl By Bay's and Women and Whiskies recipe competition all the while wanting to share it on Sunshine Daydream to live up to one of the blog's goals of including a few food and beverage features every now and then!
I learned while simultaneously playing around with props and shooting my first drink styling feature that this is a goal I definitely want to see happen on the blog. I had a great time including rose petals, sugar rimmed glasses, bar tools and heavenly Rose Lemonade into the photoshoot. I absolutely love how the rose petals compliment the pink and yellow hues of the blood orange soda, rose lemonade and lemon slices! In this drink I used Bulleit as my choice of whiskey but you always can substitute it for the type of whiskey you prefer.
