I like the idea, but I think there are way too many fonts — the bottom got hard to read! You may not have to list the mixers that way — you could just list the available liquors and mixers so people can make up their own combo.

I love having the mixers written out, and a menu in general. I can never think of what to order at the bar, or to be sure they have what I order. The only question that seems weird is that wine is free but soda is not?

My main problems are the Draft Beer font, the Sprite font, and the one along the bottom. Those don’t really seem to go with the others.

I wouldn’t charge for soda, personally. Make one of the drinks a quarter more, but make soda free. Even bars give free soda if you’re driving, and you don’t want a bunch of people who don’t like water drinking alcohol all night because that’s the only other thing that’s free. Juice is more expensive, so that’s understandable.

I might even see if your caterer will give you the soda/juices for free or something.  Although $2 for a cocktail is a friggin’ STEAL.  Sign me up. ha! Get it?

Agreed about the fonts on the bottom.  I think the vertical liquors are what is throwing it off, along with the gin & tonic by itself.  Any way you can list the vodka and rum side by side and then bullet the mixers?  Or list the liquors and then indent list the mixers as them having their choice?  Or list them as the coktail name, that way you can list them with the fun crazy fonts.

I would really not charge for the soda. I think next to vodka and captain morgan you can put one big ampersand for all three mixers. I’d also use the same font for mixers on the same row so that the lines are even.

One last thing, I’d probably choose a maximum of 4 fonts for the entire sign and mix them up from there. Choose where to use them based on levels of likeness, so use the same font for headers, another for subheadings, and one for extra stuff. I hope that makes sense.

I still think it is way too busy and difficult to read. You should stick with one font for the headings, and one font for the listed items underneath.

Ah yes, easier to read! (Once you start drinking, the vertical words would have stumped people!)

The only thing that you might want to do is make it clear that the liquors are only available in mixed drinks (typically, there are no shots at weddings). So mny you could say: available for mixing ($2) or available of cocktails ($2).

The second one is much better!
