I am totally stumped. I was thinking we would do a beer and a cocktail but FH doesn’t want to do that. I was thinking a his/hers type thing. We are having an open bar, FH thinks its best to do 1 cocktail.
I love fresh crisp drinks and well…those aren’t really the types of drinks for Seattle at the end of October.
Soooo – – What signature cocktail drinks do you suggest for a Halloween wedding in Seattle (think 50’s and rainy..) THX

Halloween makes me think of fog….you could try dry ice rootbeer. It’s easy to make at home and takes delicious. You could always add some kind of liqour to it.

Yeah, I would love cider with spiced rum or an apple liqueur at a halloween/fall wedding! We served these hot at a fall bridal shower I helped with last year and they were a huge hit.

a Sangria might work well, specially if it has some nutmeg. That way you get the dark red tone, which is spooky and some fall flavor. YUM!

I just found a DELICIOUS signature cocktail for my fall wedding made with black cherry juice, and when I made it, although flavor was deliciousio, everyone said it looked like blood and too halloweeny! SO perfect for you haha:
What You Need
- 2 oz. black cherry juice
- 1 1/2 oz. raspberry-flavored vodka
- 1 oz. simple syrup*
- 3/4 oz. lemon juice
- Lemon wedge, for garnish
How to Make It
- Shake all ingredients except lemon wedge with ice.
- Strain into a chilled martini glass.
- Garnish with lemon wedge on rim of glass. (I didn’t do this part)
*Dissolve 2 cups sugar into 1 cup boiling water. Let cool. Refrigerate any leftovers
It looks darker in real life, the pic has the flash shining through!

@MissDallasCowboy: thst looks perfect!
@Monkeygirl: duh, why didn’t I think of that!
I am going to Google town re: warm spiked cider drinks. FH is thinking something warm too but now that I see the above recipe or the Pumpkin Martini….mmmmmmm

Yeah, I’m thinking something apple related. Apple martini or apple cider. Cranberry seems fall, so that might work as well. Pupkin pie shots?

Caramel Apples come to mind. I have no idea how you would go about that concoction.

Seattle is the coffee capital so an espresso bar would be great. They should have any number of coffee catering companies in that area.
Fall definitely calls for hot spiced cider, no alcohol necessary for that either. Some people may like rum added.
Be aware that any people do not like vodka so martinis may or may not appeal to your guests. You know what your guests like and will drink, but other people do not and only know what works for their own crowds.

Pumpkin Martinis are AMAZING. I served them at a party at my house last fall and even those who don’t like vodka or martinis drank them. They taste better than pumpkin pie. I even rimmed the glasses with fat free cool whip, which made them look even more fancy and festive.
Damn, I wish I had one right now! ;P
