My fellow Bees,
I am trying to come up with a signature drink for my wedding. I am getting married January 4, 2014, so I am think something “wintery”. I initially wanted something blue, but the liquor used in those drinks would stain my tongue/teeth – no??? I am open to most liquors…..
What’s the yummiest signature drink you have tried?????Any ideas ladies????
Happy Planning 🙂

@Mellie1121: I have the same dilemma! We’ve been leaning toward a champagne cocktail of some sort….kind of a carryover from New Year’s Eve! My sister suggested a peppermint martini, but I am not a huge fan of mint. Curious to see what other creative ideas the Bees might have!

I like a dark n stormy. Not everyones cup of tea but it is warming. Ginger beer and rum over ice with a slice of lime

We did a roaring 20s theme so perhaps our drink would be a little out of place since but we did brandy Alexander’s . I was married 12/21 so it was also a nice ‘winter’ drink since it’s a little heavy. Everyone loved them!
I was also hoping for a blue drink but couldn’t find anything that wasn’t summery or tropical

Another idea for a winter signature drink is something warm – mulled wine, hot toddy, hot cider+bourbon etc.

I know it’s not much of a “signature cocktail” but we offered spiced cider with the option of adding rum. Not a whole lot of our family drinks so we thought it’d be nice to allow everyone to enjoy it.

How bought this?
The Coco snowball:
2 ounces Stolichnaya Vanilla
• 2 ounces Malibu rum
• 2 ounces Coco Lopez
• ¼ ounce Blue Curacao
Shake well and pour into a martini glass. Rim glass with honey and fresh shredded coconut

Although it may not be traditionally winter themed my signature drink was a glass of champage with a wild hibiscus flower and syrup – it looks gorgeous and taste even better. Would be lovely for a wedding using red in the colour scheme. I was able to order the flowers online for a realso able price as well!

I love the caramel appletinis and caramel vodka in hot apple cider, but those might be a little fallish.
One idea, if you are open to it, is to do a his and hers drink. Pick whatever you want! If you want a blue drink, go for it! He can pick the guys drink and go with that.
Pomegranate and champagne looks very pretty for a winter drink.

i LOVE hot chocolate with whipped cream vodka, or hot apple cider with caramel vodka. i think serving something hot would be fun.
our signature drink was a pimm’s cup, since our last name is pimm 🙂 we had to!

I think cranberry is very winter. Vodka cranberries? With maybe a signature twist
