It’s Christmas time, and the holiday season is the perfect time to test some of your wedding details. Experiment with place settings and table decorations and come up with some great ideas for catering and drink options. A mini bar, for example, is a very popular choice for your wedding reception, so in this DIY tutorial we’ll show you how to make your own signature drink station.
When deciding on the drink you want, choose something that’s meaningful to you and your partner, such as a favourite flavour. Aim to have its style and colour fit in with your theme/ colour scheme too. We chose to make a festive red drink, Sweet Cherry Bliss, using cherry vodka and cranberry juice. You should consider taste tasting your drink idea(s), especially if you want to try and make your own recipe. With that in mind, we’ll take you through a taste test of our own Sweet Cherry Bliss drink. To serve more people with this recipe, you need to simply increase the ingredient quantities and then serve your drink in the drink dispenser.
Step 1: Trace some of your flavoured sugar around the rim of your martini glass.
Step 2: Measure out 2 ounces of cherry vodka and 2.5 ounces of cranberry juice.
Step 3: Add a few dashes of white chocolate liqueur.
Step 4: Mix it all together and pour it into your sugar-rimmed martini glass.
Step 5: Add a Candy Striped paper straw to complete the look.
Step 6: Enjoy!
You can give your signature drink any look you want, especially if you add accessories like clip-on or stick-on tags or cards, or even something simple like our heart-shaped Bride and Groom Stir Sticks. And straws come in many shapes, colours and patterns, so you have a huge variety to choose from—particularly in our Retro theme! See our DIY article on Stylish Sippers for some fantastic ideas on decorating your straws.
