Specialty Drinks



While I'm on the subject of relaxing...I found this picture on The Knot and I would love to copy it. I'm having an open bar at my reception and would love to post a few fun specialty drinks on the bar. My coordinator at the hotel said I could do anything that was within my bar. So blogland, where are my bartenders? What specialty drinks should this Southern pink and green bride offer the end of June? We have Jack Daniels, Crown Royal, Absolut, Tanqueray, Chivas, Jose Cuervo, Bacardi, red and white wine, assortment of domestic and imported beer, and mineral water. Of course, we also have all soft drinks (coke, diet coke, sprite, Dr. pepper, vault (what is that?), lemonade, and root beer. I'm assuming they will have the standard mixers as well. So, get out your bartending books (mine are all packed)...what are we going to have?

I'm doing this too. I'm still working on the drinks, but I've also seen someone use blushing bride and dashing groom for their names. I think the dashing groom involved champagne and the blushing bride was pink, of course!

I noticed Reaves on your list-did you get your invitations there? We did, ours are being calligraphed as we speak! We were so excited about that option!

I love old fashioned drinks, whiskey cocktails (garnished with cherries and an orange slice) are nice and vodka gimlets are so lovely... though a little dangerous... I'm going to stop here before anyone suspects me a total lush...

I would do a pink drink (pink lemonade) and a green drink (something with midori) to mimick your colors. Name the drinks after you and the husband-to-be!

Check webtender.com, you can enter everything in your bar and they will give you a complete list of drinks. Also, I've never had this, but I thought the name was perfect: Southern Bride 1.5 oz Gin, 1 oz Grapefruit juice, dash of cherry juice.
Oh, and I love you, I'm just jealous.

We used a Seabreeze and re-named Palmetto Breeze since we were married in SC and used a Palmetto tree in our logo. It also was pink with a lime, so I got my pink and green drink. ;) We only did one specialty drink because I waited too long to decide and time just ran out. ;)

What a cute idea... see, I need to have another wedding so I can use all of these newly found things! I think do the pink & green theme as well and name them after yourselves or places/things that are special to the two of you. Great idea!

I absolutely love this idea. Of course the pink and green drinks would be darling!

What a great idea. I know nothing about making drinks. I have mine very own drink (it's perfect for diabetics) that I make when I am boating. My fiance used to be a bartender - he knows more than me! Let us know what you decide. As far as the monograms I am using, I intend to make a runner for the head table, use the monogram on the front of my programs, and I am also using it to DIY labels to put around hurricanes with a large satin ribbon behind it. I saw it in the Spring 2007 BHG Weddings issue. I loved it and it is a cheaper way to do some tables (since I have about 34) than using flowers! I will post pictures whenever I get one made!

You may have discovered this already but if not please take a quick look on Amazon at Southern Weddings by Tara Guerard. Incredible images from both Southern and preppy weddings! If only I had a spare 200k I would have hired her for my wedding!

What a CUTE idea! I might have to keep this little idea for myself! :)
