Bodas With Latin Spirit

I got a call yesterday from MTV Tr3s’ Producer, asking if any of my Latin clients would be interested in being considered for their up and coming show, “Quiero mi boda”. The show takes an inside look at cross-cultural weddings and the hustle and bustle surrounding them…. uniting two people from completely different cultural backgrounds (one being Latino), with different tastes, traditions, family values and sometimes even different languages, and shows how these unique couples’ lifetime unions come to life. Since this is a reality for many couples, I think the show may capture some interesting insights!!! If interested in applying, check out (www.mtvtr3s.com) for more information. And Clients- if you are interested, just let me know!!
Now, since we are on the topic of “Latinos” and with summer and sunshine here, I thought the New Jones Crema de Pina Pure Cane Sugar drink would be a great pre-ceremony drink to serve your guests. The color yellow is refreshing and the bilingual label that reads, “Bienvenidos” (Welcome) sends the perfect message to guests while bringing a Latin flair to your special day. You can purchase the bottles online at www.myjones.com. Looking for a more personalized touch…Jones Pure Cane Soda also offers customized labels (with photos!). Another great detail to make your day even more “signature”! Photo curtesy of www.myjones.com- Pineapple Creme Soda

A signature cocktail is a perfect way to extend your wedding color and theme (with a personalized drink name)…and a detail guests are sure to enjoy! But how about creating a signature shot instead! What about a TEQUILA SHOT! Too blah? What if it were PINK??? Look no futher… Centenario is rolling out their new tequila, “Rosangel” (www.rosangel.com)…and as the name suggests, it is PINK! It is truly tequila, but infused with a subtle sweet flavor of Hibiscus flowers, giving it it’s pink flair! Talk about easy. One pour and there you have it- a signature shot that is personalized and tasty!
