I’ve decided to add a signature drink to our open beer/wine bar. I want something fruity and fun. I’m between these two:
Midwestern Sex on the Beach (different name though)
1 oz. Malibu Rum
1 oz. Peach Schnapps
1/2 oz. Orange Juice
1/2 oz. Pineapple Juice
1 splash(es) Grenadine
1/2 Vodka, 1/2 Pomegranate juice, triple sec. Don’t know exact recipe…the bartender recommended it.
Which do you think I should go with? I personally lean more on the malibu rum one but I want to get something that everyone will enjoy. We are also having premium full flavor beer (Stella) and a light beer (Miller), 3 red wines, and 3 white wines.

@mtbikelover: the sex on the beach is good but VERY sweet. I would go with the martini, or something less sugary, it will appeal to more people. I wouldn’t want to be drinking sex on the beach all night, that’s a recipe for a serious hangover 🙂

@mtbikelover: I like the rum punch idea but yes, it’s very sweet. I’d go less sweet if that’s the only hard liquor drink you’ll be serving all night. After a couple I’d have to switch. 🙂

As someone who gets an instant stomach ache when drinking rum I’d opt for the martini.

That’s a good point about the sweetness. I am meeting a friend for drinks tomorrow night. I think we will try both of these.
It’s hard to decide when the votes are split 🙂

Sex on the Beach is too sweet. I would rather have the martini.

A lot of people like sweet drinks I guess… But they are YUCK to me. I think the martini is classy and sweet enough with the juice.

I love pomegranate martinis so my vote is for that.

My FI is a batender… so alcohol has a strong role in our reception! We’re in the process of creating our signature cocktails. I love the idea of the pom martini! Try to choose a drink that best represents YOU!
