Hosting or having a DIY party (engagement, bachelorette or birthday) in your honor? If so, it’s time to get creative in the kitchen and concoct a signature beverage for your special day!

Offering a signature cocktail at an event can make all the difference. It shows your guests that you’re thinking about the little details, and it’s a super fun perk for those in attendance. A signature drink provides your family and friends (and sometimes strangers!) with an option that’s different from anything at their local pub.

Signature Sips has created a drink that’s easy to make and a crowd-pleaser. Read on to find out how to make “Plus 1” and enjoy!

DIY holiday drink

“Plus 1”


2/3 cup of fresh lemon juice

1 bunch of fresh rosemary

2/3 cup maple syrup

Steep rosemary for 30 minutes (save a few strands to garnish later on).

Remove rosemary and combine all ingredients in a large bowl or drink tupperware.

Mix with equal parts water, soda or spirit*. Recommended with whiskey. You can also add a splash to beer for a refreshing shandy.

*Note: You may either mix in the alcohol with the entire batch or on a per-glass basis.

To garnish:

Place one or two pieces of fresh rosemary in each glass. The rosemary can also double as a stirrer.

To serve:

A whiskey tumbler is a classic option for this cocktail, but not the only option. Mismatched pastel glassware, vintage tea cups or copper moscow mule mugs are also visually perfect to entice your guests to the bar, and keep ‘em coming back for more!
