Hi Everyone! I’m in need of a suggestion for a signature drink at our reception. Our colors are light blue and red and I would like to incorporate either or both of those colors. Here’s the twist though. . . my fiance loves vodka (especially a dirty martini) but isn’t too fond of all the sweet martini’s that would normally compose a blue or red martini. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

Have you ever had a bomb pop, the red white and blue popsicles from the ice cream truck? Well this drink tastes identical and has your colors.
2 oz Bacardi Razz
2 oz Blue Curacao
2 oz lemonade
Shake with ice. Pour into martini glass.
Drizzle grenadine down the side of the glass so that it settles in the bottom. Makes a beautiful red and blue drink.

What about doing 2 signature drinks? A sweet red or blue one that you can label “the bride’s signature drink” and a vodka martini or other vodka drink that you can label “the groom’s signature drink”. This way, it might appeal to more people, too. I love the idea of a signature drink!

@roxy821 I love those! Rocket pops or something like that. THe drinks are yummy! and taste identical. It maybe to sweet for her sweet though. But I would go that route!!

A blueberry or rasberry mojito. You can muddle the blueberries or rasberries with the mint and lime at the bottom of the glass and it turns the whole drink and awesome shade of blue or red! And its easy to decrease the amount of sugar in a mojito so its not too sweet for your fiance. Only problem is that they are very labor intenseive but Ive seen it done at weddings before.

we are doing a pomegranate champagne drink. so it’s regular champagne with some pomegranate juice dropped in and then a rasperry at the bottom. we saw a sample and it’s really pretty/elegant. and reddish. so it could work for you. also, it’s pretty universal that most will like it. and champagne flutes hold drinks well while people are milling around. though elegant, martini glasses have a tendency to slosh and spill the drink. just a thought.

currently, I am jealous. because I can’t drink anything alcoholic… including my favorite blackberry wine. 🙁 I break out horribly from the drinks. totally sucks….
so soooo jealous!!!!!! and love the idea! the only drinks I know of, are sweet, so I’m probably no help to you. 🙁
maybe go to an ABC store and ask someone there??? The workers are usually pretty helpful and the store down here has a nifty gadget for mixed drinks and stuff….

I would hesitate going with a drink such as a dirty martini and go with something sweeter even if it’s not your FI’s favorite. Not everyone can drink a strong drink and sweeter drinks hold more popular appeal.
