Eat, Drink & Be Married

In tune with the weekend I wanted to share some great drink ideas. If you are trying to cut costs on the bar tab for you wedding or other event here is an idea. Try offering just one signature drink with the regular wine and beer menu. If you pick a drink that matches your colors and taste great your guests will love it. Most importantly your bank account will love it even more because you are only having to pay for one type of liquor instead of a bar full.

Below are some ideas for your signature drink.
