SEED CENTRE BUILDING, CHAGUARAMAS
INVITATION TO BID
Recently, I met a
bride who told me her
wedding favours were
going to be shot glass-
es. Immediately, I
asked her, "So, what s
going to be your sig-
nature drink served in
the shot glasses?"
She hadn t even
thought of the idea.
Having a shot glass
wedding favour and
creating a signature
drink are an irresistible
pairing and also a fan-
tastic photo opportuni-
ty.Imagine it...the couple announcing
a toast using their favourite drink or
cocktail and 100 guests happily down-
ing the shot, with cheering and applause
to follow! Picture-perfect.
A visually interesting take on the sig-
nature drink is when couples concoct
their drink around their colour scheme
and have them served in clear glasses
adorned with garnishes, for a pop of
interest. This way, your signature drink
can add another décor dimension.
Another bonus of having signature
drinks is that they might help you cut
your bar costs. Having a few customised
cocktails, with beer and wine to sup-
plement, can remove the need for a
premium liquor bar.
Ideas for your drink
• You can get creative by naming
your drinks and creating signage or a
small chalkboard, on the bartop. For
example, if you are jet-
ting off to Aruba for
your honeymoon, you
can name your drink
"bride s drink" and a
"groom s drink" so that
the bride and groom get
a chance to personalise
• You can freeze your
signature drink for
dessert time cocktail
• Embellish the glass rim with edible
gold or silver glitter
• Freeze edible flowers in ice cubes
• Use strips of sugar cane or rock
candy on sticks, as edible stirrers
• Freeze grapes and berries and drop
them into the drinks
• Make do-it-yourself cocktail stirrers
(attach washi tape or origami paper to
wooden stirrers yourself)
Here are some ideas for tropical
inspired cocktails or "mocktails"
• Watermelon and Tequila Mojitos
• Guava Margaritas
• Pineapple Lime-ade (non-alco-
