The Space Travelers Wedding Cocktail Hour

November 9, 2016 by Gregg Hollmann

space_exploration_blogIn this 53nd installment of the wedding cocktail hour playlist series, we turn our attention to the mysteries of outer space and exciting world of space exploration. It’s just a matter of time before an adventurous couple is married in outer space. In the meantime, this playlist would be ideal for astronomers, scientists and those with a love of thematic pop, downtempo electronica and classical music.

For a signature drink, DJ Gregg Ambient has selected an “Astronaut” – a sweet cocktail combining pineapple juice, Sprite and rum. To learn how to mix an Astronaut, click here. Keep in mind that there is zero gravity in space, so you’ll need to sip your cocktail from a straw to avoid having it float through the air!
