A signature cocktail is the perfect way to add a little “you” to your wedding day. Your favorite drink can say a lot about you! Are you sweet, girly, rustic, manly, rough around the edges? There is sure to be a drink for that! In our experience, guests enjoy trying signature drinks because they are usually out of the ordinary. When determining your signature cocktail, be sure to get creative with both the name and the presentation by selecting a drink name that is personal to you both. Here are some creative ideas for naming your signature drinks
-“Misshattan”: for the bride who likes her Manhattan on the girly side with bourbon, sweet vermouth, bitters, cherry juice and lemon
-“The First Lady”: for the bride’s drink whose groom is in politics
-“Sarah’s Emerald”: a colored drink in the event that the bride’s ring is a stone other than a clear diamond, in this case an emerald
-“Phillies fan”: A red drink for the groom who loves his Phillies
-“St. Bart’s”: A drink inspired by the couple’s honeymoon destinations
As you can see, there are many ways to add personal touches with your cocktails.
Always ensure that a list of the Signature Cocktail ingredients be posted at the bar as your guests will want to know! Attractive signage is also important-be creative! For example, a nice touch is to present the signature cocktails in glass beverage dispensers so guests are able to refill their glass at their leisure.
And remember: signature cocktails aren’t only for weddings. They are starting to become popular at bridal showers now too! There is no rule that says signature cocktails are reserved for weddings only!
