So tomorrow afternoon we are hosting a cookout for our bridal party. We want them to get to know each other better and we are going to be doing a mixed drink tasting to sample possible signature drinks. I can't wait! I've got about 8 recipes to try out - I've got 2 blue drinks, 2 purple drinks, a spiced pear mojito, and then just a few other drinks that I thought sounded yummy.
I go back and forth between just offering one specialty drink or doing a few. Having one can be cool in a way because the bartenders could have trays of them ready when the ceremony is over and people don't have to wait for a drink. But if we have a few, that gives people options. I was thinking of having four and calling them: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue. If I can't come up with a "blue" drink I like, I'm also thinking about having three and calling them: Love Potion #9, Love Potion #4, and Love Potion #11 (our wedding date). I know I always like a drink menu when I go out because it's fun to try something new. That's the draw of having multiple drinks.
So.....what do you guys think? One drink or multiple drinks? What are you all doing for specialty drinks, or are you skipping the whole "trend"?
