So after that horrible experience…well horrible drinks….at paramount kings dominion, I was inspired to rediscover a drink that was actually sweet and tasted good enough to drink and not get sick to your stomach. When thinking of a way to present drinks that were alcoholic and sweet and able to tie into a wedding website I was completely baffeled until I remembered being at a party one time and seeing that the host has the labels on their bottles of Jones Soda customized to have their pictures and their own sayings on the bottles.
I thought that this was a seriously cool and although Jones Sodas are seriously sweet and sugar loaded, they are still easily tolerated and actually can taste great when mixed with cocktails, so when I was looking through the Jones Soda sites, I found where you can order customized bottles of Jones Soda with your picture or your wedding or engagement picture or even your wedding announcement on the bottle to make it even more customized and cool for your guests. I actually used to be addicted to Jones Soda, not literally Addicted to it, but I loved their Sugar Free Zero Calorie Cream Soda and the best part is that Jones Soda uses Pure Cane Sugar and not those harmful chemical sweeteners in other sodas,,,but seriously, it is a bit better for you in my opinion even though I still drink Diet Coke a lot. Jones also comes in a ton of normal flavors like Root Beer, Cola, Diet, Cherry, Cream Soda, Orange and each holiday they create new flavors like Potatoe Pancake or Candy Corn or even random flavors and colors that I am going to ignore, and if you try them the right way and mix them the right way and serve the sodas in the personalized Jones Soda Bottles, your guests at your bridal shower, rehersal dinner or even engagement party are going to go crazy,,,not to mention love the drinks and the Jones Soda Bottles with your picture on them.
But what good is having the customized bottles of Jones soda if you don’t have any drink recipes to mix them with for your party so I wanted to take a little bit and share a few of my favorite jones soda cocktail recipes so that you can not only serve personalized bottles of Jones Soda to your Guests, but you can also get them drunk and get the party going even faster,,,,just remember to drink and find a designated driver so noone drinks and drives and risks hurting anyone else or themselves. Also make sure that if you are serving alcohol you know the age limit in the area you live in so you do not break the law.
Jones Cream Soda and Sugar Free Cream Soda Cocktails:
Chocolate Vanilla Cake – Take your jones cream soda and mix it with a shot of creme de cacao chocolate liquor and pour a bit of Absolute Vanilla in about a shot or shot and a half then mix or just pour the liquor into the soda in a cup with ice to get a layered effect.
Sweet and Sour – Take your Jones Cream Soda and pour in half a shot of amaretto to make it sweet and if you want it a bit sour, try some tequilla mix without the alcohol and you get a weird tasting cocktail and liqour drink that some people like and some people don’t…take a risk and serve it and who knows, maybe you’ll have created someone’s new favorite drink.
Jones Strawberry or Fruit Flavor Drinks
Jones Fizzing Margaritas – I love these! You can serve them frozen or on the rocks so they fizz. Take Patron or Jose Cuervo and mix it in with Jones Strawberry Soda or any other fruit flavor and add in a splash or an ounce of Margarita Mix and serve on the rocks to keep it fizzy or serve it over your blended ice and mix it in the blender again to make it a frozen non fizzy swet and sour margarita.
Any Flavor with Vodka – I haven’t actually found a flavor of Jones, including cola and diet cola, that doesn’t taste amazing with Vodka. My favorite is Absolute Vodka with it since it is thicker…just make sure to keep your vodka in the freezer before you try to serve and mix it.
Cola and Diet Cola
Vodka and Diet – enough said,,,its a classic that you cannot go wrong with…just like Vodka Tonic which you can also do with Jones.
Rum and Cola – Since Jones make a cola and diet cola that taste great, you can also serve the classics like Rum and Cola or Rum and Diet Cola.
SeaBreeze and other Sprite based Cocktails
Just use the Jones Lemon or Citrus sodas and you can serve everyones favorite Stoli Raspberry and Citrus Soda or even the cranberry, citrus and vodka seabreeze styled drinks.
I love the idea of customizing bottles of Jones Soda with your Picture or Wedding Announcement and serving cocktails to your wedding guests at the rehersal dinner or the bridal party or at your engagement party in bottles of Jones Soda that have your picture and your husband or wives picture on them as well.
