I have a few *~Favorites~* that are very simple!

-Captain morgan and ginger ale (it tastes just like cream soda)

-Stoli raspberry vodka and sprite

-Seagram’s 7 gin, 7up and lemon juice

-Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, Peach Schnaaps and Lemonade

I hope this helps!

Are you having a bartender?  Or are you wanting make-ahead type drinks?  If it’s the make-ahead type – Sangria comes to mind – you could do a white and a red sangria – have it in big punch bowls or decanters…. if you have a bartender, it’s an entirely different ballgame!

1 bottle of wine (red or white)  + 1 bottle of sparkling grape juice or cider + sliced fruit = easiest sangria ever! Plus, you can really customize with your favorite fruits and depending on the season (citrus, apples, peaches, etc.)

Well, I am a fan of my “Saturday Night Special” martini and it’s usally a hit.

Vodka (I use raspberry or strawberry)

Sour Apple Mix

And a spritz of sprite or some other lemon-lime soda.

Sometimes I also add a shot of Peach Schnapps if I want a little more sweet.

Pour alcohol over ice into shaker. Shake. Pour in martini glass and finish off with a little sprite.

I love Bee’s Knees…gin, lemon, and honey. I know gin scares alot of people, but this drink is super tasty, and it’s vintagey with the name and using gin.

Have been searching for my all time favourite cocktail, so hard as theres so many to choose from. I proudly say that I now have a new contender.

I found this:

2 measures white rum
1.5 measure coconut liqueur
pineapple juice

Hollow out a fresh pineapple, leaving a rigid out shell of about an inch think. Add rum, coconut liqueur & pineapple juice to
cocktail shaker, shake well then pour mixture into empty pineapple casing. Float a few pieces of pineapple on top, decorate and serve.

It was on the Winnerschoice online bar site. Link below if you want to have a look.
