We’re doing His and Her signature drinks. FH chose moscow mules, and I enjoy mojitos. His name is Duc (pronounced Duke) but people accidentally call him Duck a lot so we’re calling his drink the Moscow Duck. I have a thing for hippos (randomly) and my drink will be called the Minty Hippo .
We are doing her & his cocktail. Mine will be Cosmo because that’s what I ordered on our first date 😍 & that was literally the last time I had a cocktail (I don’t really drink haha). Cosmo is also so Manhattan to me (which is where we live). His will be some kind of fun & lighter martini, because martini is his favorite. My priority when picking cocktails is to pick ones that look pretty, have lower alcohol content (I don’t like drunk guests lol) & aren’t too complex to make, so that the line for drinks is not huge, since we’re serving signature cocktails only during cocktail hour.
We are both from Manhattan. I’m from the Upper East Side and he is from Hell’s Kitchen, so we will have a blackberry elderflower spritzer called the Uptown Girl and a wonderfully spicy dark and stormy called Hell’s Kitchen.
