Tie One On Tuesday

My friends Casey and Rey are getting married this week. Although they are stressing out, I am super excited to visit with old friends and partake in a beverage or two. So, to honor happy stressing couples everywhere, here are a few cocktails to request at your next wedding (be it your 5th marriage or your first).

I'm all about tradition and the bride definitely needs something blue. I think this cocktail should cover it.

Something Blue
2 oz Hpnotiq (this is a liqueur that is made of fruit juices and vodka)
2 oz white wine
1 oz Ginger ale
Mix all ingredients into a champagne flute and serve

Let's say you are craving a little cake but want it in liquid form. The Wedding Cake cocktail is right up your ally. I have seen several versions of the recipe, I am going to use the one with cream.

Wedding Cake
3/4 oz gin
3/4 oz Amaretto
1/4 oz orange juice
1/4 oz pineapple juice
1/4 oz cream
Pour the gin, Amaretto, orange juice, pineapple juice and cream in a blender with ice. Blend well.
Pour into a hurricane glass.

The last is a perfect cocktail to toast the lucky couple and their fine romance.

Fine Romance
1 1/2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Grand Marnier
2 dashes Grenadine
1 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
Mix together with crushed ice in a glass and garnish with mint leaves.

Big congrads to Casey for making an honest man out of Rey. You both are such wonderful, beautiful friends and I wish you years and years of happiness and yummy cocktails!
