I have no name for champagne + cranberry, which I wanted to be a signature cocktail b/c I always drink it at weddings 🙂
Our other signature cocktails are a mojito (which we have named a play on my and FI’s names) and a cubra libre. So – those are Caribbean themed. FI suggested calling the champagne + cranberry a Caribbean Punch to go w/ that theme, but that is the name of another (real) drink.
The wedding is in Palm Springs, so that is another direction we could go with the name. The only thing I could think of was the Palm Springs Paradise, but maybe that’s kind of…lame?
Any ideas? I’d REALLY appreciate it!

I’m guessing it’s kind of a blush colored…..what about Blushing Bride (too cheesy?) or Palm Springs Flush or something along the lines of color?

What about incorporating your new last name? And the color or another characteristic?
Like Smith Blend or Smith Blush or Smith like a rose… or Smith-ubbly?

Yeah, I like the name Blushing Bride, but it might be too cute for us 🙂
I like the idea of incorporating our names, but we’re doing that for the mojito, and I can’t figure out a way to make it really work for this one.
Thanks for all the ideas, Ella. Maybe the Palm Springs Sparkle?
Ha why is this so hard? 🙂

I went to a wedding where there were 4 or 5 signature cocktails and they were all named after things having to do with the bridge and groom, like “Big Apple Martini” and “Miami Mojito”. I thought it was kind of a cute spin.

Champagne plus kirsch is called a Kir Royale, so what about naming it a Palm Royale?

Thanks, all!!! I think I have a name for the cocktail. I’m not saying it b/c it has my real name in it, but your ideas DEFINITELY helped me come up with it 🙂
