Kym Johnson Dishes on Her Wedding Drinks – Yes, That Means a Champagne and Whiskey Bar!
The former Dancing with the Stars pro and her fiancé Robert Herjavec will tie the knot this summer
In an exclusive video from PEOPLE’s Countdown series, the former Dancing with the Stars pro, 39, takes us behind the scenes of the (two!) bars she has planned for her highly anticipated summer wedding to her Shark Tank star fiancé Robert Herjavec.
Up first? A champagne bar for a “champagne girl,” as she calls herself. The bubbly will be supplied by Le Medaillon Champagne, and the bar will be stocked with two of their most popular bottles: Brut and Cuvée Reserve, made from grapes that grow on 65-year-old vines – and of which the vineyard only produces 12,500 bottles a year.
And of course, to complement her champagne bar, the star had to come up with something perfect for her future hubby: a whiskey bar, stocked to the brim with Jack Daniel’s.
A few of the signature cocktails that guests will be able to choose from?
In addition to a whiskey punch mixed with Australian ginger beer, there’s the “Respect Your Mother,” a fruity twist on a Manhattan garnished with lemon candy, and last but not least, “The Starship,” which boasts Gentleman Jack, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, a tiny bit of sugar and some apricot liqueur topped with grapefruit beer. The garnish? An apricot, wrapped in a fig, dusted with edible gold.
“I think it’ll be really cool – hopefully people don’t get too messy at the cocktail hour!” says Johnson with a laugh. “But it’ll be fun. I just want it to be a big party and a big celebration.”
