    As promised here are some drink ideas we will be having at our wedding. Other than the usual open bar items (Jack and Coke is FI's fav, the Long Island Ice Teas, Beer, Cosmos, etc.) and non-aclhy beverages like lemonade, ice tea, and water, our WC suggested the following speciality drinks (still thinking of cute names to go with em)

    1) I'm not a huge fan of champagne, so to give it a twist we are having what they call a "Peach Champagne Sangria" -- supposed to be champagne but with a tropical twist and she says it's delish!!

    2) Tropical Fruit Punch - with some alchy, don't know exactly what but she said it's yummy

    3) Margaritas - mango, lime and strawberry all on the rocks!

    4) Mojitos - With Amy's idea they will now be "Mint-to-Be" Mojitos

    5) Their speciality is called an "Akumal Cooler" - has rum, vodka, triple sec, mango and pineapple juice

    6) Something they call a "Horni Tini" (definitely gonna change the name, lol) - hornitos tequila, cranberry juice, lime juice and triple sec

    As for names, I got the following outta a wedding book ~ MOST admittedly are beyond corny But these might give you some ideas on how to play around with words:

    - Altar-ed State
    - Blushing Bride
    - Be My Cider
    - Cloud-Nine Cocktail
    - Diamond-Ring Sling
    - Electric-Slide Special
    - Eternitini
    - First-Kiss Fizz
    - Groom's Gimlet
    - Honeymoon Helper
    - "I Do" Daiquiri
    - Maidarita
    - Rosy Future
    - Tie-the-Knot Shot
    - Tuxedo-politan
    - True Blue
    - Veila Ale
    - Wedding Bell-ini

    Something I saw really cute that another bride did on here recently was have four drinks under the titles Something Old (and old favorite like a margarita), Something New (some creative mix), Something Borrowed (another bride's drink idea), Something Blue (a blue drink of course) ~ I LOVE that!!!

      We have a signature drink! FI invented it and named it "Kenny's Cactus Martini"! It is made up of:

      El Tesoro Tequila (Blanco)
      Agave Nectar
      Lime Juice

      They are soooooo yummy! And potent too!

        Awesome website for those (like me) who are cocktail ignorant.

        Most Popular Drinks on www.CoolCocktail.com

        I'm thinking of doing chocolate rum cocktails or chocolate martinis.

              No Problem!!! I'm like Savannah I'm so cocktail ignorant. I used to look online for drinks, but I always want to know what they look like and none of them really narrow down results for me so i buy TONS of cocktail books at TJ Maxx (they have lots w/ apic of every drink and they're only $3-$7) and Joe and I pull them out all the time and try new stuff!

              I tried to find a bunch that were orange, but its actually really hard!

                I know! Orange drinks are super hard to find, that's why I am SO thankful that you posted those! You don't even know - I showed my FI right away and we're both excited now!!
