Signature Drink Series: Lucky in Love

Signature drinks are a fun way to add a personalized element to your bar service. They are sure to get your guests talking and yet another great way to incorporate your wedding colors. I'll be posting some great drink recipes weekly in this series to inspire you! Today's yummy drink is in honor of St. Patty's Day and perfect for an outdoor spring wedding!

Lucky in Love

1 cup diced ripe honeydew
1 oz vanilla vodka
1/2 oz. Cointreau
1/2 oz. Midori
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1 tbsp roughly chopped fresh mint at least
1/2 cup cold brut Champagne or dry sparking wine

Puree the melon in a blender (add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water if necessary). Press the melon mixture through a strainer into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add the vodka, Cointreau, Midori, lime juice and mint. Shake vigorously to infuse. Strain the mixture into a chilled glass and top with Champagne to fill; give a quick stir and serve.
