A wedding reception is a time to raise a glass, have a cocktail, and celebrate with your nearest and dearest… but what exactly will you be drinking? Serving your guests a signature drink is a fun, creative way to express yourself and liven up the party! All you have to do is follow these simple steps, and you’ll have perfect drink for your big day.
Step One: Start With a Great Recipe
You don’t have to be a master mixologist to create a signature cocktail. In fact, you don’t have to think of an entirely new drink at all! Your signature drink will be something that reflects the vibe (or should I say… the spirit) of your wedding, as well as you and your partner.
Do you two have a favorite drink already? Maybe a flavor that matches your wedding theme (for example, something tropical for a destination wedding)? Start there and find a drink that you both love. The only rule is that it has to be tasty!
Step Two: Give it a Fun Name
This is the moment when your cocktail becomes something “signature.” A clever name that suits your wedding is a great way to put your unique stamp on the drink. You favorite drink with blue curacao can be your “Something Blue.” A mojito can become a “Mint To Be” cocktail. The possibilities are endless!
Step Three: Serve and Enjoy!
Once you have a great drink with a fun and creative name, there’s only one thing to do — drink up! Talk with your caterer or bartender about the best time to distribute your signature drink. Should it be only available at the bar? Served instead of champagne when it’s toasting time? Should there be a drink waiting for each guest at their seat? The answer is entirely up to you, but make sure you have a sign (or that you make an announcement during the reception) describing the drink and what’s in it. This way, everyone who raises a glass will know that they’re drinking something truly special.
