      One thing was that their blue drink turned everyone's tongue and teeth blue which made for some hysterical photos later in the evening.

      You also might want to consider having your second green drink be a Non-Alcoholic one. If it's hot, it could be very refreshing.

      oooh Matt, I didn't think of the teeth changing aspect of it. I sure don't want to ruin my new bleaching job!!! I might have to rethink that and add red garnishes like someone else mentioned.

        This is what I'm working on too! My drink as well needs to be green. I actually decided to have a get with my MOH & a few bridesmaids and we are going to try different recipes tomorrow night together and perfect the ingredients and we are going to name it too. I figured this would be a fun way to discovered what works best :)

            I know for sure one of ours is going to be my summer drink of choice:)

            I have always called it "Suntan In A Glass" so all of our friends will get a little laugh that it is at our reception :), totally me :)

              This drink testing night turned out amazing! I nailed down exactly what drinks I want to have and perfected the recipes and sent them to my wedding coordinator. We tried out 3 of my potentials and chose our two favorites :)

                Oh I almost forgot...
                To go along with our "Suntan In A Glass"
                We want to name things after our location... Key West the Southenmost Point of the USA. So the menu will look something like this, of course prettier :)...

                Southernmost Beer
                Southernmost Wine

                    I am interested in doing this for our reception -- did you have to pay extra at the resort for this? I'm hoping to narrow down an easy recipe and contact our WC to see if we can make it work. But I was just curious as to if you paid extra for it or not!

                    Thanks!

                      we were going to do our own drinks but then thought even if we have the recipe, this can be a hassle, so we are getting an hour of lighted bar on a mobile cart with colored margaritas and cosmos with tequilas.
                      you can check on this site as our coordinator offered this and we are having it!
