So much goes into planning a wedding — from the flowers to the seating chart, but many brides (and grooms) agree that one of the most fun parts to plan is your cocktail hour! Of course, wine is a crowd pleaser, craft beers are always a hit with the groomsman and bubbly is a must for any celebratory occasion. But if you want to do something really special, signature drinks are a unique way to make a statement on your big day.
You can select one or two beverages you both enjoy or opt for his and hers cocktails. A champagne cocktail is always a classic choice — make it your own by incorporating your favorite flavors or keep it seasonal with timely ingredients (think cider, rosemary and pomegranate for winter weddings). Consider serving a non-alcoholic “mocktail” for guests who don't plan to drink. Get 'em creative names. The options are endless!
To get you started, here are a few romantic renditions of classic cocktail recipes that are guaranteed to wow your friends and family. Cheers!
