    I personally love them (Texas girl). I think it’s a fun idea for anyone without heartburn issues.

    I had to google it (Canadian girl here)! I would enjoy it but it’s certainly not going to be every guests choice. But as long as you are serving other drinks (besides an old fashioned which is also somewhat an acquired taste) you should go for it!

    I had to look it up.  Maybe at a brunch wedding as a bloody mary sub, but even then I can think of dozens of things I would prefer even over a bloody mary, let alone this.  Anything that involves any version of a tomato juice is more like a meal to me, not a refreshing drink.  Definitely not something I would order outside of brunch.  Hard pass.

    I recently began a love affair with them and I would love to have one but honestly I don’t know that it is a drink that I would have at a wedding… A little too filling, too messy and strong tasting (which might not really mesh with the food you are serving)

    it would be awesome at the day after brunch if you are having one though!

    beaniebee :  I LOVE them and would drink them but I do know a lot of people who don’t enjoy them/have issues with the acidity. I think if you are spending $$ on a signature drink it should have a little more mass appeal.

    I’m another Canadian who had to google it. I weep when people mix things with beer. I’m a beer snob and former homebrewer, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

    How are the ‘signature drinks’ working? If it’s open bar with certain beer/wine/sig-drink and otherwise cash, I’d have a more generic sig drink. It’s almost kind of mean to make people pay if they want a mixed drink other than a beer soup. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m in the midwest, and had to google what it was.  It doesn’t sound good to me, but maybe if you are from a region where they have these, then it would be ok?  Personally, I’d do something more basic though.

    ugh!  my boy LOVES them.  I think they’re gross.  definitely summer appropriate but I wouldn’t recommend it as signature drink just because it’s so niche, too much of an acquired taste

    I don’t think you need something with “mass appeal” (usually equals bland and tasteless). Just know your crowd. If this is something a good number of your guests may try, I say go for it. It’s a signature drink, not the only thing you’ll have available. I think an old fashioned is a great idea as well. At my wedding to my ex we had a sake martini as one of our signatures and it went over well. I’m sure if I had posted about it, I would hear a lot of “gross,” “I wouldn’t drink that,” “it’s weird.” But you’re throwing a wedding and serving specific people (friends and family, I’m assuming), not trying to come up with one menu that would please a majority of a country’s population.

    I would go for something with more mass appeal.  micheladas are a no-go for anyone with heartburn, stomach issues, medical need for a bland diet, dislike or intolerance of spicy food, and seafood allergy (the Worcester sauce). Plus… I’m just picturing someone spilling one on your dress (or on another guest.)

    Hmm. Sounds like a Caesar with beer ( yet another Canadian girl here )….which sounds really gross ๐Ÿ˜ lol. Then again, I’m not much of a fan of beer either. 

    Love the idea of a signature cocktail. If you both love it I’d totally go for it!

    I’d be looking for something else so I’m glad you have a bar available to others who don’t care for beer or whiskey.
