8 Radiant Orchid Inspired Wedding Cocktails

Jan 8, 2014

Radiant orchid is the hot color for weddings in 2014 and one way to bring that color into your wedding is by serving a signature cocktail.  You don’t need more than one signature cocktail or you can offer a “menu” of a few drinks all in your color scheme.   Radiant orchid is a tricky color for drinks though, as the color itself has both purple and pink undertones.  Go for drinks with pink and purple hues.

One of the easiest ways to add this color is by offering edible orchids in one of your drinks.  For example this Radiant Orchid Hawaiian Martini from Bonefish Grill is not only delish (I’ve had it) but it also matches Pantone’s color scheme for this year.

1/2 oz pineapple juice

1/2 oz lime

2 pumps monin desert pear

1 pump monin coconut
