You’ve got the monogrammed wedding décor – but why stop there? A signature cocktail adds a fun and personal touch to any wedding bash. Here’s how you can create one (or two!) perfectly:
Go For A “His” And “Hers”
One of our favorite ways to incorporate both the bride and groom’s personality is to create not just one, but two signature drinks for the occasion. A “his” and “hers” signature cocktail is the ultimate way to cater to both the male and female guests at your wedding. Is the groom a bourbon snob? Then, perhaps his signature cocktail will be some variation of the Old Fashioned to appease the gentleman. Is the bride a total girly-girl? Then, consider something light and crisp – like champagne and citrus flavors, or a fruity martini.
Stick With What You Know
If mixing cocktails isn’t your forte, then we recommend sticking with your go-to flavors and building from there. For destination weddings, the resort’s mixologists will work closely with the bride and groom to create the perfect signature cocktails for their big day. Just tell them your alcohol of choice and they’ll be sure to whip you up something extra special.
Consider the Season
Getting married in the heat of summer on a gorgeous beach? Then what could be more fitting than a colorful rum punch or pineapple drink served from a fresh coconut? If you’re getting married in the fall, perhaps a spiced rum signature drink or hard cider option would tie in nicely. The last thing you want is to get married on a 90-degree day and be serving your guests a Hot Toddy – so definitely consider the season before making your selection.
Incorporate Your Theme
A cool way to personalize your signature cocktails is to incorporate your wedding theme into the drinks. For example, if you’re having a destination wedding in Mexico, you might want to create a drink with the destination’s favorite tequila. Does your décor have a rustic appeal to it? Then, serve your drinks in Mason jars to complete the look. There are so many ways to get creative with it!
Make it Universal
Another thing to consider, is to choose a common flavor to serve as a base for your cocktails. This is to ensure that a majority of your wedding guests will not only enjoy your signature drinks, but so they aren’t racking up your bar tab on something more expensive (depending on your bar package, of course). You really can’t go wrong with a house vodka or whiskey because they work well with dozens of flavors everyone’s bound to love.
Personalize the Name
Once your signature drinks have been perfected, there’s only one thing left to do – name it! This is one of our favorite ways to personalize the cocktails because you can have so much fun with it. Have a wedding hashtag? Then consider tying it into the drink names! Do both the bride and groom have nicknames? Then, go ahead and call it “The Joker” or “The Honey” – whatever you see fit!
Signature cocktails are an awesome way to tie in the theme of your wedding and both the bride and groom’s personal touches. Getting closer to tying the knot? Then, contact Romance Travel Group today for some expert guidance!
