We are having beer, wine and a signature cocktail. I wish we could do a fully open bar but hey, whatdoyado. So now I have the task of figuring out what I want our signature cocktail to be. I wanted a kind of unusual (but still tasty) cocktail. Something that people don’t necesarily konw by name like an apple-tini, though they are quite delicious, are so common. I wanted something that we could name after us. The “Dandrea” (Dan and Andrea) if you will. Sooo this is what I found:
- 2 slices of cucumber (1 for muddling and 1 for garnish)
- 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 oz. simple syrup*
- 1 oz. organic cucumber vodka
- 3/4 oz. elderflower liqueur
- Splash of champagne
- Cucumber slice, for garnish
Fresh, simple, new and delicious! I’m excited to try these out (hopefully this weekend).
P.S. the elderfower is in the honeysuckle family, so the elderflower liquer will add a hint of sweetness. Mmm…
Now I am burdened with the task of figuring out what beer and wines we want! I love beer. I’m kind of a beer connoisseur if you will. Or.. at least I’d like to think so. We are going to have something boring that “everyone” will like like Bud Light (BLEGH) or whatever. Then a full calorie domestic, maybe a Budweiser and then hopefully 2 more interesting beers. I like Magic Hat and Rogue. Mmm.. My mother is a little scared to have high gravity beers at our reception. Our friends and family LOVE to drink. And well yeah.. she’s afraid of people having a little too much fun. Which, granted, is a valid concern but damn if I’m going to have crappy beers at my reception.
Thoughts? Did you have beer and wine? A signature cocktail? Full bar? What was your experience?
