Pink & Green Wedding

A reader of the blog emailed me that she is getting married soon and having a pink and green wedding. She asked for some help on some ideas; focusing more on cocktails than flowers I believe LOL

So I send a few suggestions (Email below): Please use the comments section to give your ideas=== anything you think the happy couple could use!!!


WOW, that will be so much fun. For cocktails the first thing that comes to my mind is the Cape Coder (more vodka to make it pinker LOL)for green anything with Midori in it can get the color, but here are some quick ideas

Apple Martini

Midori Cosmo

green carnation

Green Swizzle
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon icing sugar
soda water
2 dashes bitters
2 oz white rum
1 tablespoon crème de menthe (green) Shot of Creme de Menthe (called Mint Frappe)

Green Tequila
1½ oz tequila
¾ oz melon liqueur
Squeeze of lime
Lime to garnish

Another idea is to have mint frozen in the ice cubes!

Other Pink cocktails:

Pink lemonade with Vodka

The Cosmo!

Pink Lady
1 1/2 oz gin
3/4 oz applejack
1/4 oz lemon juice
1-2 dashes grenadine
1 egg white
maraschino cherry for garnish

Pink Martini
2 oz good-quality gin
½ oz guava nectar
½ oz fresh orange juiceorange twist (for garnish)

I know there are dozens more! I would stay away from the green food dye in the beer and probably have bottles of Heineken, Becks and Grolsh

I will ask any of our readers too!!!

What a fun post preppy guy! I'm going to link you up for Pink & Green Thursday and let's hope we can get some great pink & green suggestions for you! :) When is the wedding - summer? How about a martini bar with a variety of pink and green juices, and I love the idea of pink and green swizzle sticks! :)
