~~Something Old, Something New...Drink Menu~~

I think I want to do a Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue Drink Menu.  I have an idea for the something Old... FI's favorite drink is Crown and Coke so that's kind of an old classic type drink ... but I need some ideas for the others.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

For Blue: Hypnotiq and Sprite
For New: The Hurricane (invented in New Orleans)
For Borrowed: Borrowed Time


here is one called "Borrowed Time"
Ingredients for a Borrowed Time
Canadian Whisky
Ruby Port
Egg
Grenadine Syrup
Quantities for one drink:
1 1/2 oz Canadian Whisky
1/2 oz Ruby Port
1 Egg Yolk
1 tsp Grenadine Syrup
Blending Instructions:
Combine the Canadian whisky, port, egg yolk and grenadine in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes
Shake well, strain into a cocktail glass, and serve


 


Or maybe a Screwdriver because a lot of people borrow those...

Something New could be the Wedded Bliss or Marital Bliss cocktail. I found this on MarthaStewart.com:
That is such a photo 2767728-1


2 parts gin (we used Hendrick's)
1/2 part St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1/2 part fresh lime juice
4 parts soda water to top off
Lime slice or wedge for garnish
Mint sprig for garnish


Directions here.

I considered doing this too, but struggled so I settled on one pink drink & one green drink to match my colors :)


For "borrowed" you can do anything that is "borrowed" from another culture/country.  Like mojitos from Cuba, margaritas from Mexico, something with Guinness from Ireland...lots of possibilities!!

I think I've decided on my menu.


 


Something Old ~ Crown and Coke


Something New ~ The Newlyweds (Vodka, lemonade and cranberry juice)


Something Borrowed ~ Sangria (Borrowed from our honeymoon destination. Mixture of pineapple juice, orange juice, white wine and fresh fruit. Virgin version will be available too.)


Something Blue ~ Shot O' Blue (UV Blue Rasberry Vodka)
