Fun, Creative Ideas for Signature Wedding Cocktails
Beer and wine are must-haves at most wedding receptions, but nothing is holding you back from going beyond the basics. Offering signature cocktails is a fun way to include liquor at your wedding without an open bar and avoid extra costs.
Here are some fun, creative ideas for signature wedding cocktails.
A mojito is a refreshing and delicious option to serve at your wedding. It’s the ideal single-serve drink that will prevent long lines at the bar. You can make a classic mint mojito or add other flavors like strawberry, raspberry, pineapple, or whatever you and your partner love.
All you need for this drink is fresh mint and fruit of your choice, white rum, fresh lime juice, sugar or simple syrup, and club soda or sparkling water. You can customize the flavor to create a fun name or perfectly match your wedding theme. This drink allows lots of room for creativity.
The Moscow mule is sure to be a crowd favorite. It’s another single-serve drink with many options for customizing the flavor and can be anywhere from sweet to spicy. Jalapeño, watermelon, cranberry and blueberry mules may be you and your partner's favorite choice.
This refreshing drink is made with vodka, ginger beer and lime juice. Vodka has an alcohol concentration of 40% alcohol by volume, so one drink goes a long way.
If your wedding is in the summer or you love tangerine-flavored drinks, this option is for you. Reposado and añejo tequila go great with this cocktail since it has a sweeter and smoky flavor to pair with the tangerine.
For this drink, you will need 100% agave reposado or añejo tequila, fresh tangerine juice, cocktail agave nectar and a garnish. This drink will brighten up your wedding with its beautiful color and fruity taste.
Fresh Juice and Champagne Bar
You can skip the hard liquor altogether and include a bubbly bar with fresh juice options. Your guests can create a signature drink they will surely enjoy.
Those who don't want an alcoholic drink can enjoy their choice of fresh juices that you provide but without the champagne. Everyone can enjoy these delicious options with or without the bubbly.
Strawberry Rosé Punch
Standing in line for drinks at a wedding can be a pain. Save your guests’ time so they spend it on the dance floor instead of waiting for drinks by serving big batches of cocktails.
A delicious option is a strawberry rosé punch that is affordable and simple enough to make in large amounts. You will need frozen strawberries, pink moscato, lemon-lime soda and simple syrup to create this drink everyone is sure to love.
Lemon Drop Punch
Lemon drop drinks are a classic that will have your guests coming back for more. You can use champagne, vodka or both to create a citrus flavor that matches your vibe. All you need for this refreshing cocktail is lemons, champagne, sugar, vodka and lemon peels for decoration.
This is an excellent option if you are looking for a fun and sweet dessert drink. Instead of serving plain champagne, sparkling wine or prosecco, top it with a scoop of sorbet or sherbet. It creates a flavor delicious enough to taste like a dessert as it dissolves in the glass.
Nothing is as refreshing as lemonade, especially at a summertime wedding. This unique lemonade concoction can be served as a cocktail or mocktail.
Create a classic lemonade cocktail and add lavender and elderflower liquor to elevate the flavor. To further customize the drink, you can add a splash of champagne for some bubbles and fresh lavender to look pretty.
