    I picked the following:

    Vodka & Cranberry because it’s light, refreshing

    Margarita for those that want a fruity alcoholic drink without the harshness of a liquor just mixed with juice

    Rum & Coke because it’s a darker drink with soda and they are very popular

    Hope it helps in your decision!

    Can you just do signature drinks? I feel like most people would rather have a yummy cocktail than a rum and coke.

    The only thing i’d drink out of those options is a vodka cranberry. I only like vodka as a hard alcohol, though. My husband would only drink a rum and coke.

    I choose Gin and Tonic, Vodka and Cranberry,and Rum and coke because it gives different options for different types of drinkers.. but I LOVE Mojitos.. just throwing that out there.

    WOW your venue is making bank off alcohol! I have never heard of that much upcharging, it’s just crazy to me. I voted for rum and coke, it’s familiar and rum is tropical to me IMO. I also love mojitos! Good luck and I don’t blame you for not paying $16 a drink.

    I think your actually being a great hostess by choosing to do well known cocktails rather than signature ones. And hopefully a lot of your guests will appreciate it (I know at least  the guys that won’t have to walk around with a pink drink in their hands will lol)

    I would go with the one rum drink, one vodka drink and one other hard alcohol drink that you know your guests are more likely to drink. For me it would have to be whiskey but I say do the drambuie since its your fav ๐Ÿ™‚

    With that much selection, I think you’ll be fine without signature drinks. I voted rum and coke (very classic, most guys drink it), vod/cran (one my my favs, and a lot of girls drink it). For the third, I voted Mojitos (cuz its different and not typically available in limited bars) but margaritas would be a good choice too. With those choices and beer and wine, I think everyone will find something they like. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Margarita?  Heck yes.  Anywhere, almost anytime. 

    By The Way: grapefruit juice is toxic with alcohol.  (I love grapefruit juice, but a Dr. told me that, just FYI)

    I voted gin and tonic, rm and coke, vodka cran, and whiskey ginger.  If you want to go for more extravagant- people love Margaritas and second comes Mojitos.
