The cubes will be served with signature drinks once it gets dark. It will be great fun to be sipping on a glowing drink and resolve my childhood issues under the stars at our outdoor evening reception. We also feel it will contribute to the fun atmosphere we're trying to create. The map will tell guests to ask for a siggy drink after dark at the bar 'for an extra sparkle', as will the drink menu at the bar. The drinks are currently named: 1) Light Up My Life, and 2) Sparkle in Your Eye.
Now as for the the siggy drinks themselves, they are still TBD. The idea is to have 2, one of them non-alcoholic. There are currently 3 candidates for the non-alcoholic spot:
- Original Arnold Palmer (Iced Tea & Lemonade) - our regular favorite drink
- GT Arnold Palmer (Green Tea & Lemonade)
- Sparkling Green Tea Ginger Ale
Since our venue does not have license to serve hard alcohol, our other siggy drink can only be mixed with wine or champagne. Sangrias would be great but it's just too much work. So we're considering a spritzer of some sort, or more likely a champagne mixed with cranberry or pomegranate juice (for the red).
Anyone else suffering the restriants of the beer & wine only rule in creating signature drinks? Or have suggestions for other good and simple options before we conduct our taste test?
