The Art Form of Signature Cocktails
One of the best and more favorite subjects that we feature often is the art form of a signature cocktail. Do you remember mom saying to you growing up. .you never have a second chance at a first impression? I know I sure do. With this being the case, it is always lovely to offer something refreshing that takes into account the colors of your party as well as will set the tone as people’s first impression of your event. I don’t know about you, but there is nothing worse that arriving at a party or event and realizing the line to bar is around the corner. By offering a signature cocktail, this issue is all but alleviated. Here are 2 cocktails that we featured on the radio shows.
