Sometimes being in public places means; having a story to tell. In this case it is a story about a couple, which is getting married this weekend. Scott and Maloney; I hope I am right with the names. The bottom line is they are to wed this weekend in Michigan and their wedding colors are pink and orange. So you ask this is not Wedding Crashers? Yes it is still Behind the Bar; that is reason they are here his and her drinks one the color of orange the other pink. I gave Scott the orange drink a Kentucky Speed bump. This drink has Woodford Reserve Bourbon, fresh OJ and Cointreau in it. This manly drink was the perfect gift and yet for a lady that enjoys Bourbon they will find it delightful. Now the other, the one for Maloney, the pink one. The one I named… Le Coup de Foudre which mean love at first sight in French or just Love for the purpose of ordering. This wonderful cocktail has Chambord, Malibu rum, pineapple and a touch of cream. This pink cocktail fit the bill, drinkable without being overly sweet or creamy.

For those of you at the wedding raise a glass and toast to your friends that now find themselves in a lifelong love. For the rest of us raise a glass and toast nothing or everything as long as toast and remember nothing always comes for something. Maloney and Scott congrats!!!!!!!
