Three drinks crafted by a pro for your reception.
Signature cocktails are a great way to showcase your favorite flavors and keep the bar tab in check. We asked Julie Foust, who has tended bar at The Bluestone for more than seven years, to concoct a few crowd-pleasing sips to serve at your reception. Here's what she came up with.
In a cocktail shaker, muddle six blueberries, four mint leaves and ¼ ounce of fresh-squeezed lime juice. Add ¼ ounce of simple syrup, 1 ¼ ounces of white rum and one cup of ice; shake vigorously. Strain into a highball glass, top with soda water and garnish with a lime slice and a sprig of mint.
In a Champagne flute, pour 1 ounce of St. Germain and top with the Champagne or sparkling white wine of your choice.
Fill a rocks glass with ice, then add 1 ¼ ounces bourbon. Top with one part sweet tea and two parts lemonade, then garnish with a lemon slice.
