I’m looking for recipes for a vodka based drink and a rum based drink for our signature cocktails. We want to pre make them both and have them in beverage containers/dispensers which are 3 gallons each. We want them to be super easy with as few ingredients as possible…doesnt have to match our colours but would be awesome if they did. Our colours are blush, grey and ivory so I was thinking a blush and a clearish colour drink…but thats not a deal breaker for us. Any ideas would be wonderful!!

If you use white rum and club soda, you would have a clear drink
Grapefruit Rum Cooler
4 mint (sprigs)
1 tbsp superfine sugar (taste)
23 cup grapefruit juice (fresh)
1 12 tbsps lemon juice (fresh, lime, taste)
3 ozs light rum (taste)
club soda (chilled, seltzer water)
angostura bitters (taste)
In a cocktail shaker with the back of a spoon, crush mint sprigs with sugar and juices until sugar is dissolved; add rum and about 1 cup ice cubes and shake 30 seconds; strain mixture into 2 tall glasses filled with ice cubes and top each drink with club soda and a splash of bitters.
3 ozs white rum
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 tbsp simple syrup
club soda (chilled)
1 wedge lime (garnish)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
Add the rum, lime juice, and simple syrup.
Shake well and strain into 2 tall glasses filled with crushed ice.
Fill the rest of the way with club soda and garnish with lime wedges.

We had a blue hawaian for one of our signature drinks and everyone loved it!! (we called it “something blue”) it was malabu rum, blue curracio (sp?) and pineapple juice.
We also had champs mixed with a dash of grenadine and o.j., people didn’t seem to like that one nearly as much!

we’re doing the same thing. we want to make them in advance, though so we won’t be using any carbonated beverages. He drinks beer, but I still wanted to do a his and hers, so instead I’m doing a feminine and masculine drink.
I got all of my ideas from http://www.allrecipes.com
His: (commonly known as the “Royal Flush”) 1 oz whiskey, 1 oz peach schnapps, 2 oz cranberry juice
Hers: (commonly known as “Mexican Brew” or “Summer Brew”) 3 coronas, 1 c vodka, 1 container frozen limeade

I see I’m not the only one who thought of vodka and grapefruit juice. It makes the most lovely peachy pink color and it’s scrumptious!

We served dark & stormies at our wedding, which was a BIG hit. They’re basically one shot of rum in about 4-6 oz of ginger beer (the higher quality ginger beer, the better).

You can’t use anything with carbonation in it if you pre-make them so your mix options are limited. How about a sweet manhattan:
Maker’s Mark bourbon
Maraschino syrup (from cherry jar)
Martini Rosso sweet vermouth
Angostura aromatic bitters
You can use any type of whiskey in place of the bourbon or you can even try a dark rum. I would cut out some of the cherry syrup if you use rum though since that is a very sweet alcohol.
