So we want to offer a signature drink at our wedding. THe main color is aqua and then accented with pink/purple orchids. I’m thinking of a pink/purple drink b/c I can’t think of too many blue ones. So I’m thinking of some of hte possible ingredients for our beach wedding: rum, coconut rum, grenadine, passion fruit juice, orange juice, sprite, pineapple juice…How would you guys put these together?

Blue one: Vodka, sprite, blueberry schnapps. It’s blue!
I like the rule of 3: liquor, juice, an accent. Like this: Rum, passion fruit juice, splash of grenadine. THis way your liquor is your main flavor, the juice accentuates it and the splash is just a smidgen =]. Most cocktails are made like this and for large groups, this makes it much easier than getting 5+ mixers in there.
Coconut rum and passion fruit are a simple mix with just a splash of pineapple, too.
Go to a specialty liquor store and go to the Schnapps section. They have flavors of every freakin’ color. Mix with a plain vodka (or coconut rum) and a splash of juice or soda and call it a day!
Our pink/peachy drink was peach nectar juice, plain vodka, and black raspberry schnapps. Freakin’ delicious. I don’t see why you couldn’t sub it this way: pineapple juice, GUAVA RUM (Cruzan makes it–it’s $10 a bottle and freakin amazing) with a splash of grenadine or a pinky colored schnapps
Sorry i used to wait tables for 4 years and I played bartender too much =]

Vodka sunrise! Vodka – Orange Juice – Grenadine. Mix it together and it’s pink (if you use enough grenadine)! Or, to use the flavors you listed: Coconut Rum, OJ and grenadine.

Blue Curraco can add some blue if you decide to go thet route. Here are some recipes:
We are looking for something light, refreshing, spring-y. I’m leaning toward strawberry lemonade with regular vodka and a little club soda for fizz. It will be in a big, clear dispenser thing and we will float strawberry and lemon slices in it. That would be pink!

ejs – that Guava rum sounds delicious, i’ll have to ask if my venue has it!
libra – i wish my venue let us bring our stuff in/set up our own bar, I think those glass (not sure what to call them) with the spickets to drink out of and floating fruit are soo nice looking
