There are many parties, showers and receptions involved with planning a wedding and one way that you can make yours a little more special is to add a signature cocktail or two to the menu.
Find Your Signature Cocktail
Any of the recipes below will make an excellent addition to your wedding plans. Choose one to become the signature drink for the reception and give your guests a taste of something special. The drink may feature your favorite flavors or liquor, match your wedding colors or simply... sounds tasty!
Or Create a Cocktail Menu
Another way to incorporate the drinks of your choice into the wedding reception is to create a cocktail menu. Choose a few of your favorites and display a list on the bar; the bride may have a favorite vodka martini while the groom chooses his own whiskey sipper. This allows your guests to choose when and what they want to drink while passing along your own style.
Booze-free Options, Too!
Don't forget about the mocktails! Kids and non-drinkers are often on the guest list and you want to make them feel as special as everyone else. Choose a sparkling drink or mix up a booze-free punch and ensure that all of your guests have a great time.
