Thirsty Anyone? Delicious Drink Stations

On many of our weekends, especially those in vacation rental homes we set up a specialty drink team. These teams made up of a group of ladies who choose one or two signature drinks for the weekend. These drinks are just a tempting addition to all the other yummy beverages the ladies bring. Over the years we have had many Yummy concoctions with great names from Kelli Juice to Trailer Park Punch. The station itself consists of LARGE beverage dispensers with BIG batches of the drinks premixed ready to enjoy, LARGE cups, straws, fruit for garnish (must haves), Sharpie Markers and signs with the name of the tasty beverage & how to fix it. Make your drink stations even more fun with personalized koozies or individual wine glasses with their very own wine charms. Other items that are fun to add some pizazz are drink clings, FUN straws or glow sticks that can make you feel like you're in New Orleans sipping a hurricane.

Some of our tried and true signature weekend drinks are -

Dirty Arnold Palmer - every beach trip needs a large batch of these refreshing treats. You will probably need to whip up a second batch.
Equal parts Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka and lemonade (homemade is best)
Serve over ice & garnish with lemon

4 parts pineapple juice
1 part orange juice
1 part cream de coconut (coco lopez)
