For our Ready-Made Cocktails, we went with a Pink Lady Gin and a Lemon Drop.
Pink Lady Gin
(Servings – 10 Drinks)
15 ounces gin
5 cups lemonade
10 to taste cranberry juice (a splash, or may use a dash of grenadine)
20 teaspoons heavy cream
We have 3 great options for this one
2. Classic Lemon Drop
3. Sparkling Lavender Lemonade (non-alcoholic)
After you know what your cocktails or drinks will be, it’s time to make some labels for the lids. I used this Marvy Uchida hole punch. I printed some labels and “eye-balled” while punching out the labels. It’s not the most fool-proof method, but it still works. To make it even simpler, hand write the labels so formatting is not an issue.
Once you’ve got your labels made, place them inside the lid.
Throw your drinks on ice and you’re party ready.
Make sure to have some straws handy for your guests at a near by table.
