Spotlight on... Signature Drinks

Amber Daniels

Signature drinks have quickly become a must have feature for every event. Passed at the entrance, they are a great way to greet your guests and set the tone of your event.

Used for all types of events, signature drinks can coincide with theme at a charitable gala (Asian, Latin, beach or other destination theme, etc), company colors at corporate dinners, or the bride and groom’s drink preferences at a wedding.
Here at Peabody Opera House, all bar packages include the option of a signature drink. Based on your ideas, the experts at Levy Restaurants (exclusive onsite caterer to Peabody Opera House)can create the perfect cocktail within your bar package to fit with your theme and personality.  
Below are a few of the drinks Levy has used this year along with the recipes so you can try them yourself!



Variety the Children’s Charity served this summery rum creation that paired perfectly with the Latin theme of their recent Dinner with the Stars Gala.

  • 1/2 oz. lime juice

  • Skewer of fresh berries for garnish

Combine over ice in a cocktail shaker and garnish with the berry skewer.
