Jamelia wanted for her Wedding a Glass Slipper Vodka Luge.
1m tall Glass Slipper
Standing 1m tall, 1/2m wide and 1/4m depth this was a big Glass Slipper. Carved from a single ice block and placed next to entrance to the reception room - no one could miss it!
A Surface Vodka Luge Glass Slipper
Created as a surface Luge, this was certainly very, very popular with everyone at the reception party.
There was not enough thickness of ice for us to drill a channel through the ice, so we used the instep of the glass shoe for the drink (Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila, Whisky etc.,) to flow down. Guests caught the Aqua Vita at the tip of the Glass slipper.
With regards to drink, although this is called a Vodka Luge, any drink can be used. If choosing to have Vodka, flavoured vodkas such as Honey flavoured Vodka, lime, raspberry and so forth are ideal. Not everyone loves plain Vodka. However flavoured vodka is almost like a liqueur. The sharpness of the plain vodka cannot be tasted - just the flavour.
Ice Shot Glasses
Using ice shot glasses, as opposed to glass shot glasses will add to the experience and enjoyment of ther Vodka Luge. The idea of a Vodka Luge is to get the alcoholic drink as cold as you can get it before pouring it through the luge. This is not always possible at a venue or using glass shot glasses. Pouring your drink into an ice shot glass before pouring through the luge will drop the drink's temperature. If the guest catching the drink also uses an ice shot glass to catch the drink when it exits, the drink is cooled down even further. It is an amazing taste experience. Ask about the packages we offer. We have prices to suit just about every budget.
How to use Ice Shot Glasses with a Vodka Luge:
- Pour a shot of your drink into an ice shot glass (from the bottle).
- Pour the shot glass contents into the entry point of the luge (top of the Luge).
- The drink will partially cool as it whisks its way through the Luge but not cool completely.
- The guest catches the exiting drink with another ice shot glass and then knocks it back in one go! Amazing and thrilling!
If you have used ice shot glasses before, you will know all about this. If you haven't - you are in for a real treat!
