ROYGBIV Signature Drink Series: Orange

Welcome to the next installment of Signature Drinks by Color! For the next  few weeks we’ll be going through the color spectrum with some  inspiration (some classic, some unique) and recipes for a yummy and photoworthy signature drink. Have one you’d like to share? Send us an email Tiffany@ribbonboxevents.com and we’d be happy to feature you!

Today it’s all about orange!

How about an orange crush?

Pretty simple (and yummy!) concoction! Combine two parts orange vodka with one part peach schnapps and top off with one part orange juice.

 

No matter what side of the Mason Dixon line you reside on, everyone will love the Southern Belle!

This drink gets its color from the combination of pineapple and orange juice.

1 1/4 ounces of bourbon

3/4 ounces triple sec

8 ounces pineapple juice

2 ounces orange juice

*for a “sunset” appearance, throw a splash of grenadine before serving!

 

Having a fall wedding? Haru Sushi in NYC served a very yummy cocktail a few months back that would be a big hit at any autumn affair.

Here’s the recipe for the Top Pumpkin Cocktail: Pumpkin Pie cocktail courtesy of ClubPlanet:

Ingredients

1.5 oz. Pear-infused vodka (We used Absolut Pear Vodka)
1.0 oz. Pumpkin puree
0.3 oz. Cointreau
0.2 oz. Simple syrup
Splash of bitters
Nutmeg
Cinnamon

Preparation
Pour all contents in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake thoroughly. Pour drink in a Cosmo glass straight up. Garnish with nutmeg and cinnamon.
