A bridal shower, nuptial lunch, next-day brunch, or royal wedding viewing party deserves a romantic signature drink! Inspired by the seasonal flavors in Harry and Meghan’s wedding cake, my friend, caterer Peter Callahan, came up with this breakfast bubbly called the “Wedding Bell-ini.”

It’s dressed for the occasion with a lemon peel and a swizzle stick bearing a paper sprig of myrtle, which has been considered a good luck wedding flower since Queen Victoria carried it in her bouquet.

The littlest guests can get in on the fun with a mocktail version—just tape a paper straw and lucky myrtle sprig to a bottle of elderflower lemonade!


  • Myrtle Sprig Template
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Swizzle stick or skinny straw
  • Tape
  • Lemon
  • Channel Knife or Potato Peeler
  • Sparkling Wine or Champagne (optional)
  • Elderflower Lemonade


Step 1 Download Sprig of Myrtle Template, print onto cardstock, and cut out. Tape to swizzle sticks and set aside.

Step 2 Make a lemon twist for each glass using a fresh lemon and a channel knife or, if you don’t have one of those, a potato peeler. (Another way to make a lemon twist: cut the ends off a lemon, use an ice pick to score the pith between the rind and the flesh of the lemon, cut the lemon into slices, then pull of the rind into strips.)

Step 3 To mix the Wedding Bell-ini, fill the bottom third of a champagne glass with elderflower lemonade, top with champagne and add a twist.
