Bachelorette Emily Maynard - Special Cocktails for the Show

This season of The Bachelorette promises to be a bit more sophisticated than past seasons thanks to down-to-earth mom Emily Maynard.

Instead of shots and hot-tub make-out scenes, expect more traditional romance for the single mom of a 6-year-old daughter. "Her being a single mom definitely changed the tone," Bachelorette host Chris Harrison tells PEOPLE.

Still, expect at least a few drinks to continue to flow – on the show and at viewing parties! – as Maynard, 26, meets a bevvy of eager suitors.

In celebration of Maynard's reserved Southern style, Las Vegas based mixologist Robert "Bobby G" Gleason, who has been a professional bartender for over 25 years, has come up with two sweet, lady-like cocktails for viewers to enjoy as they watch Maynard search for Mr. Right.



THE FIRST IMPRESSION ROSE
• 1 part Pucker Raspberry Rave Vodka
• Club soda
• Splash of cranberry juice
• Build in order over ice in a tall highball glass
• Garnish with a lemon wedge
