Bachelorette-Party Planning 101

So your BFF just got engaged and now you’re in charge of planning the ultimate bachelorette party. Don’t fret! I recently shared some advice with on how to throw the best pre-wedding bash. I covered everything from party themes to video montages, but let’s be real, a party isn’t a party without a signature cocktail!

Offer Signature Sips: Save yourself the hassle of having to assemble a full bar by pre-mixing a delicious signature cocktail. One of Bethenny’s favorites? A pink lemon drop, from her new book Skinnygirl Cocktails: 100 Fun & Flirty Guilt-Free Recipes. It’s super simple to make: You’ll need 1 1/2 ounces of Skinnygirl Meyer Lemon Vodka, 3/4 part orange or citrus liqueur, 1 1/2 parts lemon sour mix, and 3 to 4 fresh (or thawed if frozen) raspberries. To prepare it, muddle the raspberries at the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the vodka, liqueur, sour mix and ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass or pretty decanter if making a large batch. Garnish with a lemon wheel on the rim.

Follow my advice and I guarantee she will have an unforgettable evening. For more of my bachelorette-party planning tips, visit
