I want to have one, but I haven’t decided on one yet.  I know I dont want any too strong or anything too sweet and girly. (I don’t want my guest to be drunk before dinner is even served)  I was thinking maybe the st.germaine cocktail.

We did. Our colors were dark purple and grey. Our drink was grape juice, sprite, and vodka. It was yummy and a HUGE hit!! I look at our pics and at least one person in every pic has one in their hand!

Yes, we are doing “his” and “hers” cocktails. We’re doing the “French 75” for “hers” because I was a French major in college & an “Old Fashioned” for “his” because my fiance enjoys a nice whiskey (also, he loves Frank Sinatra & all things old school 🙂 ).

We are doing sweet tea vodka and lemondade. 

 

That purple drink sounds awesome!

I’ve seen some fantastic ideas on Pinterest. I love the “blushing bride”.

Full post here: http://www.caphillstyle.com/capitol/2011/7/22/happy-hour-the-blushing-bride.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+caphillstyle%2FZmEu+%28Capitol+Hill+Style%29

Ingredients

4oz of Champagne/Prosecco/Pink Champagne

1oz Peach Schnapps

1oz Grenadine

Pour the Schnapps and grenadine into the bottom of a champagne flute.  Pour chilled champagne into the glass.  

If you’re feeling fancy, you can curl a piece of peach or peach skin into the flute.  Some women like to sugar the rim with pink sugar, I think that’s unnecessary, but to each, her own.


I also plan on serving a “MarTimi”, which is a play on my FI’s name (and also reminds me of the soap opera, Passions)!

I just did something simple. Lychees with lychee juice in champagne. It looked pretty with all the bubbles. DH’s drink was an old fashion.

Although it is usually consummed as a shot, we are doing Washington Apples as a mixed drink, because it was the shot Fiance ordered for me the night we met (it’s pretty tame, tastes mostly like apple pucker if you have never had one) We met in Vegas by the way 😉

Our signature cocktail is going to be “Something Blue” and stems from our colors being black, white and deep aqua. Haven’t figured out what the drink is going to be, but we’re going to do an alcoholic version and a non-alcohoic version since there will be a number of kids there. The drinks will both be fruity and garnished with a puff of blue cotton candy (love is sweet theme). We’re leaning towards blue hawaiian punch and 7-up for the virgin drink; and something with 7-up and blue curacao for the grown up version.

we are having champagne and wild hibiscus.  it is so beautiful.  the hibiscus flower is edible and opens up with the bubbles from the champagne.  the natural syrup turns the champagne pink which is perfect.

we are also having some high end tequilas for sipping not shooting.  my fi is a tequila snob.

Everyone’s drinks sound so cool! Our waitstaff will be passing around “Skinotinis”, which is their signature drink, not mine. I think it’s like a Greek martini made with ouzo.
