We had a signature cocktail tasting party last month and invited a few friends over to help us choose the perfect cocktail to serve our guests. We weren't sure what theme to work with - the Irish theme or the color scheme (one of our colors is navy). We ended up making and serving a bunch of god-awful tasting drinks, including some with curacao and coconut rum! Never again! But it was a great excuse for a mini party...
We settled on the Wild Irish Rose, and tried several iterations of our own creation...try it out for yourself - you'll never taste the Jameson's.
In a cocktail shaker, combine the following over ice:
1/2 oz grenadine
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
Shake and serve straight up in a chilled martini glass with a sugared rim. Delicious and pretty in pink - though that's the only pink you'll see at our wedding.
I am sometimes a bit ridiculous, so as our cocktail hour begins and these drinks are passed to our guests, the Irish band is going to perform My Wild Irish Rose. Very likely no one will get the reference but Jen and I, but no matter.
So, what's your signature cocktail? I'm always looking to try new cocktail recipes, especially on our deck in the summer.
