Signature Drink Lab is a partnership between Cory Yates and his wife, Pege Yates, founder of Never Forgotten Designs (NFD) and the Show Me Sweets Cake, Cookie & Candy Convention in the Midwest. Signature Drink Lab started in 2018 after years of experimenting with home brewing, coffee making, cocktail sipping and trips to Napa for the good stuff. With Cory's extensive love of spirits and brews, coupled with Pege's love for making things that have that extra wow factor, Signature Drink Lab was created. Signature Drink Lab has filled a niche for fun, wow factor that can be safely added to drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. All recipes and products have been tested for real drinkers, both at big events or just a fun evening on the back deck. Signature Drink Lab aims to bring you recipes that add unique flavors, occasional food grade glitter, themed rim sprinkles and other small details to give your drinking experience a customized WOW FACTOR!
