A night to remember deserves a designated drink or two to remember it by. Sometimes choosing the cocktail you’re going to be sharing with your loved ones can be daunting. Don’t fret, we’ve found a couple of options that should fit together as well as you and your betrothed to be.
Stick to the classics
- Moscow Mule
- Irish Coffee
- Bloody Mary
If you aren’t satisfied with a common cocktail, most great signature drinks put twists on old staples. Bring you and your partner’s favorites into the mix!
A few methods to bring your signature cocktail to life…
Incorporating your favorite non-alcoholic beverages into your signature cocktail may be a great way to mix things up. Spicing up a hot chocolate, red bull, or ginger ale could bring a homey feel to the occasion.
- Spring: fruit juice, sprite, or iced tea.
- Summer: lemonade, red bull, or a milkshake/smoothie.
- Fall: apple cider, coffee, or chai.
- Winter: hot chocolate, eggnog, or warm tea/punch.
Choose your favorite fruits and incorporate them into your cocktail by infusing, muddling, or garnishing your drink with them. The freedom to venture from simple, classic choices like berries to exciting, odd options like mango, peach, or kiwi give you and your partner another chance to make your wedding your own.
- Spring: orange, cherries, or strawberry.
- Summer: pineapple, mango, or watermelon.
- Fall: apple, peach, or cranberry.
- Winter: pear, grapefruit, or pomegranate.
Herbs & Spices
Find herbs or spices that pair well with your chosen alcohol and consider infusing, muddling, or garnishing your drink with it. Building on the complexity of the drink creates the warm, fresh, or earthy flavors that can put a cocktail over the top.
- Spring: lavender, saffron, or turmeric.
- Summer: rosemary, cilantro, and sage.
- Fall: cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
- Winter: peppermint, cinnamon, and allspice.
Now that you might have an idea of what will be in your cocktail(s), consider if you’d like a single or a couple or signature cocktails. Typically each partner will choose their own signature drink to offer, but do what feels right for your night. Keeping in mind how many signature drinks you’ll be offering, consider what you’d like to name your cocktail(s). Half of the fun is in the punny names!
