Summer - Part 1: Wedding Cocktails



With the weather we are having,I can safely say that summer is early this year. So this week am dedicating all of my posts to summer ideas.
So Part 1 is about cocktails. What better time to have a fun and filrty signature drink to serve to your guests?


Make sure the drink complements your wedding theme, you can even go as far as matching your drink with your wedding colors. Once your drink is chosen, give it an unique name.
Mojito and fruity cocktails are great for summer weddings. About.com has some ideas for wedding cocktails.




Bronx Cocktail


Ingredients:
1 1/2 oz gin
1/4 oz dry vermouth
1/4 oz sweet vermouth
1 oz orange juice
orange slice for garnish

Preparation:
Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
Shake well.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with the orange slice.




Apple Raspberry Mojito

½ lime, cut into 4 pieces
5-6 fresh mint leaves
1 teaspoon granulated white sugar
Crushed ice
2 ounces white rum
3 ounces apple juice

In a cocktail shaker, muddle raspberries and strain into a mojito glass. Add lime pieces, mint leaves, and sugar to the glass and gently muddle. Add rum and apple juice. Fill the glass to the top with crushed ice. Top with club soda. Stir well. Serve with a sugar cane.
