Create a Signature Gamer Cocktail

Add a personal touch to your reception menu with a signature cocktail. It is also a great way to keep your wedding budget manageable by cutting the open bar and instead offer simply wine, beer and a signature cocktail. 

Like this pair of Portal 2 cocktails created by James Dance, the proprietor of the bar/arcade Loading. Designed to resemble the two colored portals from the excellent sci-fi puzzle game. Relying on Blue Curacao and Orangina for the color (with vodka and rum for the kick), this neon pair is sure to teleport your tastebuds to new heights -or get you hammered.
