ROYGBIV Signature Drink Series: Yellow

We’re back with 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, our color wheel has landed on yellow!

Champagne Hula Cocktail from Lisa Shea

Lisa Shea's Hula Cocktail

4oz Champagne
1oz rum
1oz pineapple juice

In a tall flute glass, pour in the Champagne, then the rum and pineapple juice. YUM!!

 Lemon Drop Martini

This cocktail does double duty: beautifully colored and deliciously decadent!

INGREDIENTS:

Juice of 3 fresh lemons

2 Tbsp.  regular sugar

3 fl. oz. premium Vodka

Super-fine sugar for rimming glass (pulse regular sugar in a blender)

1 chilled martini glass

Crushed ice

This one is as easy to prepare as it is to drink! First, rim your martini glass with the super-fine sugar.  Next, mix the lemon juice, vodka, and sugar in a cocktail shaker filled with crushed ice.  Shake gently until well-blended and thoroughly chilled. Pour into the chilled, rimmed martini glass and enjoy!

1 oz. Gibson’s Finest 12 Year Old Canadian Whisky

Simply start with a tall glass filled with ice and build up this summer treat! Garnish with an orange wheel.

Happy cocktailing!
