The Latest Stir

Signature drinks are very popular with guests at events. Consider these tips to add some refreshing personality to your special occasion:

Be decorative and creative with color by matching your event's theme with unique drinks. This personlizes your occasion and enhances your theme. For a wedding, think about serving it during cocktail hour instead of during the open bar. A signature drink can set the tone and make your theme stand out for your guests. Did I mention that it's inexpensive and creates a nice presentation with less work for you? 

Don't forget to embellish your signature drink! Love candy? Try a a rock candy swizzle stick. Feeling healthy? Fruit adds color and character. Don't forget a pretty drink needs a name! Be creative and memorable. 

Signature drinks aren't exclusively for weddings!  With the holidays around the corner, here are a few ideas that will bring some cheer.

Candy Cane
1.5 oz. vodka
.5 oz. peppermint schnapps
.5 oz. creme de cacao
Crushed candy cane rim
Garnish with minature candy cane 

Cinnamon Creme
2 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream

.5 oz. Goldschlager
.5 oz. butterscotch schnapps

Remeber signature drinks can also be non-alcoholic and still create a stir! Swap out the alcohol for seltzer, juice, soda, milk or anything that you think will impress your guests.
