I need a signature drink for a party...any ideas?

Recommended Posts

I just moved, so I am having a launch party at the end of this month.

 

The party will be in a friend's antique store and I will have a four person band playing vintage instruments (acoustical).

 

My colors are tan, brown, white, and aqua blue. I'm also planning to have a candy bar for favors.

 

It should be lots of fun. I have hired a caterer to do the appetizers and I am planning to have cocktails too.

 

Rather than having a bar, I would like to have a signature drink. Any ideas on what to serve? I don't really care for liquor drinks so I have no idea. I am expecting a lot of people so I need to make something that is affordable. I would like something either neutral colored or blue.

This is sooooo not what you want to do but the guys I hung out with in college created this drink (it was sooo good and this pretty pink color, but it had so much liquor in it) and they called it the "PANTY DROPPER" It was pretty funny because at parties people started asking for it all the time!!

 

Sorry your title reminded me of this, but with that said you could create a cute drink that people will remember. Good Luck!!!

Wow, that sounds like a great party!!! Can I come?? wink.gif

 

what about a blue lagoon? (1 shot Blue Curacao, 1 shot Rum, 6 oz Pineapple Juice, 1 or 2-shots Sweet & Sour Mix, ~ 1 cup of crushed ice)

 

....that's the only blue mixed drink I can think of right now & I had to look up what's in it! :)

I think I was thinking of the same drink as Heidi! I couldn't even remember what it was called!

 

Place to look for ideas. . .

 

blue, alcoholic Recipes at Epicurious.com

 

This is one of my FAVORITE sites! They have a really huge database of food and drink recipes...I just searched "blue" and sent you what it came up with. But you might be able to do a more specific search to find what you want.

How about a Dark & Stormy - dark rum and ginger beer. The only trick is finding ginger beer (it's nonalcoholic, but not exactly ginger ale either). I've found it at World Market before.

 

Or maybe a chocolate or an espresso martini. Mocha martini (is that a thing?)

 

Or maybe something using iced tea or iced sweet tea?

Mmmm. .. I LOVE chocolate martinis!! I know Godiva makes a reg. chocolate and also a white chocolate liquor that are both really yummy. Also, Starbucks has a couple liqours out now too...so you could totally do a "mocha martini" or something!

Our favorite party drink... not so much for a sophisticated crowd but maybe if you put it in a nice glass :)

 

Skip and Go Naked!!!!

 

1- can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate

2- cans of vodka (use lemonade can)

3- beers

 

Sounds disgusting but I guarantee they'll ask for more!

 

OR you could just serve one or two martinis with a chunk of dry ice in them.. we had that at a x-mas party and it wasa pretty cool.. except I was really worried about touching the ice.

how about pineapple mojitos? just do a regular mojito and muddle in some pineapple with the sugar and mint. you can serve it with a fresh stick of sugar cane. delicious, perfect for summer, and very chic. (and moderately inexpensive since it does not require top-shelf liquor)

 

blue drinks scare me! wink.gif

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
