Apr 16, 2020

A good signature cocktail is always something we can get behind! This is a fantastic idea to add a little personality to your wedding cocktail hour and can even save you some money!

If you’re considering a limited bar menu, serving a yummy signature wedding cocktail is a perfect way to make cocktail hour feel special and personalized.

These cocktails below can all be made as “batch cocktails” to serve large groups! Garnish with a pretty accent and you’ve got a cocktail worthy of a boomerang cheers on instagram! (PS. are you following us on instagram?!)

Sparkling Spiked Peach Lemonade

If we had to pick a favorite wedding fruit, it might just have to be peaches! They are the prettiest color and yummy in summer and fall! This cocktail is a perfect balance of tart lemonade and mellow peaches. Garnish with a peach and you’re ready to go!

Strawberry Gin Smash

Talk about the prettiest summer cocktail! If you’re a blushing bride incorporating our favorite feminine hue into your color palette, a pretty pink cocktail like this keeps the party going!

Smoked Whiskey Apple Cider Cocktail

Let’s talk about those crisp fall weekends! A warm cocktail like this Whiskey Apple Cider could be served hot or cold and will certainly get your guests in the Autumn spirit.

Brunch Punch Champagne Cocktail

If you want to talk about the quintessential wedding cocktail, this is it! There is just something so fun and nostalgic about a good wedding punch! It’s bright, it’s light, it’s bubbly. All the good things!

Peppermint Vodka Hot Chocolate

For our brave winter couples, let’s talk hot drinks! It gets down right frosty in the winter months but that shouldn’t keep you from hosting the coziest wedding ever. A beautiful hot chocolate bar serving up cocoa would be so magical. (Be sure to include an alcohol free version for the kiddos too!)

Bonus Tip: Spruce up basic champagne with edible flowers!

One of our absolute favorite ways to make a basic champagne magical? Edible flowers! Check out one of our favorite vendors, Gourmet Sweet Botanicals, for a huge variety of edible blooms. Simply have your bartenders float a bloom or two in each class for this gorgeous look.

And the best part? If you get one of the mixed varieties, you can easily add flower magic to every glass for less than $50!

A Final Word from Amanda

Signature cocktails are one of our absolute favorite trends. It personalizes your wedding, can save you money, and just feels like a beautiful accent to your wedding design.

Up your game even more with a fun name to display on your bar menu! It could be anything from where you two went to college or even the name of your fur babies! The sky is the limit!
