Shoot ‘Em Up
|Dessert Shooters by the Peabody Galleria
Coming off of this diet from hell 👿 (Went into ketosis for 15 days: no sugar, no carbs), I am ALL about something GOOD and sweet. I was at Applebee’s the other day (yes during the diet phase) and saw they are offering dessert shooters. I think any type of shooter is a great way to shake up the traditional cocktail hour. Really, how can you look at the picture to the left and not fall in love?
Dessert shooters are fun because they tempt the palate with different scents, textures, and tastes. What is not to love? Cake in glass, people. What makes dessert shooters even better is that they are pretty. As I have said before, presentation is everything. Having alternating dessert shooters passed by butlers is a great way to kick off the party, or keep it going.
Speaking of which, have you ever considered having a dessert hour? Typically, after the couple cuts the cake, the guests can start to wind down a bit and go on a slow crash. How about introducing your dessert hour? Have your cake cutting ceremony in your reception room and invite your guests to a dessert hour in the previous location of the cocktail hour. Have dessert stations and shooters passed to revive your guests. This might be a great time to introduce your signature drink or bring it out again for an encore!
