ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrating the bride begins long before she puts on the white dress and says "I do." The months leading up to the wedding, the most important women in her life -- moms, sisters, family and best girlfriends -- come together to throw a bridal shower. From the invitations to the food and drinks, everything has to be perfect, but doesn't need to cost a fortune.

For a delicious twist on traditional party drinks, hosts can whip up creative cocktails by using Seagram's Escapes flavors as a base, then adding spirits, juices and fresh fruit.
