We are at a loss for what to name our last 2 "drinks." We are creating a menu with the different drinks and my Fiance thought we should add some more "guy friendly" mixes. They are: Tanqueray and Tonic and Crown and Sprite.
This is what we have so far (you may not understand some of the names cause they are inside jokes for us and our friends/family): The Summer of ’09-Absolute Vodka and Lemonade; The Beach House-Korbel Champagne and Orange Juice; Summer in Chicago-Grey Goose Vodka and Soda with a Lime; Antigua Sunrise-Jose Cuervo Tequila, Orange Juice and Grenadine; Sunday Funday-Original Lime Margarita on the Rocks; The DT Special-Bacardi Rum and Coke, No Fruit.
Anything "beachy" or "summery" is good!

Our tanqueray and tonic was our "something old" because it’s sorta vintage. Why don’t you name it the Stingray or something after Corvette’s cars?
Crown and sprite….hmmm. Call it the Eight Ball, haha. People drinking crown make me think of pool games. You know, whiskey, cigars, and pool!

That’s an awful lot of signature drinks!

We wanted to give people plenty of choices! They can order anything they want, but our coordinator at our venue said 9 times out of 10, people will order a drink that is right in front of them!

I wasn’t meaning to sound critical, just commenting.
What about something like "Seaspray" for the Crown and Sprite? Or "Lighthouse Pick-Me-Up" for the Tanqueray and Tonic?

@nathalietanya: I know you weren’t.
I like Seaspray for the crown and sprite!

We don’t drink alcohol, I am hoping you will have some summer virgin drinks for your guests who do not consume alcohol.

I think it’s neat that you have a whole range of fun drinks – but if there’s any chance that your guests might be confused about whether these are the only drinks offered, I would make sure to list it as a "Cocktail Menu" and not as "Signature Drinks."
How about The Charleston for the crown & sprite and The Flip Flop for the gin and tonic?

How about "Summer Shores"?

We named a drink for each bridal saying:
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue and then I created a cute template in publisher and printed out in color and pasted onto cardstock and embellished. I made about 4 of these because we had two bars so we had enough for one on each end of both bars. I borrowed some small plate stands from my mom to prop them up.
We named the drinks after things that were significant to us (where we met, where we currently both work, where we were honeymooning and my husband’s alma mater) and we explained why we chose each name on the cocktail menu as well. I posted a picture, but it may be hard to read some of the top info…let me know if you have questions.
