Hi Bees! I am trying to make a red colored signature drink for my wedding. My first thought was strawberry or cherry flavored…it doesn’t really matter to me though…I just want it to be red and taste good!
Anyone have any tried and true cocktail recipes to share? Garnish ideas are welcome, too! 🙂

When we were first dating, my DH made me a drink that was vodka, fizzy lemonade, and pomegranate liqueur. It wasn’t a dark red, but adding a little more of the pomegranate would have darkened it It was extremely tasty.

@starlight1222: You could do a cosmo with pomegranate licquer instead of cranberry juice. Would still be yummy but would make the drink more red than pink.

The ”Red Kiss” or “Beso Rojo” is a sophisticated but simple martini using vodka, pomegranate juice, fresh lime juice, honey syrup and a orange twist. Served in a standard martini glass it’s a sure thing for everyone AND an easy pour for the bartenders. It’s quite refreshing for your cocktail hour and a nice welcome cocktail for your guests. Serve in a standard martini glass. You can also add a cute swizzle stick for novelty.

My fav is a raspberry lemon drop martini. This might be my signature drink unless the mixologist at the venue has a better drink.

I am obsessed with Passion Tea Lemonades from Starbucks and frequently make them at home with a splash of Raspberry Vodka, delicious!

You can find the recipe through a google search for the Passion Tea Lemonade bit if you are interested or if you have trouble I can pass it along!

I like to combine crushed berries with muddled mint and vodka with a little bubbly

As long a you’re ok with everyone getting plastered at your wedding, signature cocktails are great! We had our reception on Saturday night with white Russians… It got messy. Can’t remember much. But it was Awesome!!!
