Alcohol Question

Recommended Posts

TAKE THAT recipe and add something to it and make it your signature drink. I cannot wait to use price punch it is purple and delicious. But since I changed out colors its back to the drawing board. What fun it should be.

OMG that is way too funny!! I just went to that site from the first link you posted and typed in Vodka Punch, and that recipe you just posted is what came up! I was thinking, yum that sounds really good! LOL Great minds think alike I guess! hehe
Lol!!! It's meant to be! ;-)

Honestly I loved that punch! But that's the one that really isn't a pretty color. It's just kinda beige almost! lol! Which was a non-issue for my Halloween party but might not be ideal for your wedding. You may want something that uses a brighter fruit juice so that it's prettier when served. I think the tea in it is what "ruins" the color. Just makes it more brownish I guess.

Maybe you should make a test batch this weekend. . .friday.gif

I went to a wedding once where they had a cocktail hour while pictures were getting taken and then about an hour into they switched over to just beer and wine. Nobody knew that there was a cutoff so when the bartender said that he just had beer/wine after that, everyone was ok with it. You could try something like that and just bring a small amount of the punch. Once its gone, beer and wine.

And, even though people have to go to work the next day, I don't think that will hinder the drinking for most ppl - it's a wedding! Just my opinion :)
I second all of the above. I also don't drink beer and really only drink mixed drinks, BUT if there was either vodka or rum i would be perfectly content. Vodka is probably the easiet because it basically goes with every mixer out there so you're bound to have lots of happy people.

Also what about buying the booze (including the beer/wine/soft drinks, etc.) at Costco? I find that when we have parties we save a LOT by buying our booze there. That way if you do decide on one liquor on it's own or a punch you can buy a couple of huge bottles for not a lot of $$$

Us Canadians can't buy alcohol at Costco. We have regulated liquor stores and beer stores. We are able to buy wine in wine shoppes also. They put some wine shoppes (still regulated) in grocery stores but thats about it.

Kelly, I was just about to say that about Costco.lol I wish it was like that here. We can buy a bunch with a liquor license, and we can return the unused bottles to the LCBO but it costs a bit more to buy it that way. I think we will stick with a punch.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
