Colors and Cocktails

Hosting a soiree without the perfect cocktail can leave your guests feeling as if they’ve attended a Cirque du Soleil performance without acrobatics—wondering who dropped the proverbial ball on the menu.

We are such visual creatures.  A signature cocktail not only acts as a wonderful precursor (or as an accompaniment) to the food served, but it can visually set the tone of your event.  Dark, deep beverage colors and flavors are reminiscent of velvety, opulent textures and exotic spices, while clear pastels radiate a sense of order and refinement.  Brights play well as accents to both color sets but also stand alone as bold options that recount a confident playfulness.

Are you hosting a cozy get together by the fireplace with a speakeasy vibe?  Try a dark, clever bourbon and soda.

Is it a ladylike brunch with a twist of glamour?  A mimosa punctuated by grapefruit and sage makes a daring statement with deep lush pink and green additions to the bubbly.
