Signature Cocktails/Drinks

Recommended Posts

We are wanting to have a signature or themed cocktail at our reception. I was just wondering if anyone else has done this, what they used and what they named it? Also if anyone knows of some wines that have a beach/nautical name or look to it?

We aren't having a signature drink thats like none other w/ its own name. We're doing Miami Vices for our signature. Our cocktail hour will start w/ a Miami Vice for everyone, then any Miami Vice ordered after that will be added to our tab
