How to Make the Perfect Signature Drink for Your Wedding

Unique Cocktails for a Memorable Ceremony

Your wedding is a time to celebrate your love and commitment to one another. What better way to toast to your new life together than with a signature drink? Whether you’re looking for something fruity and refreshing or something a little more unique, we’ve got some great ideas for you to ask your caterer or bartender to create:

For the couple who loves cocktails:

– Spicy Paloma: Combine tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and a touch of agave nectar or simple syrup. Add a pinch of ground chili pepper for a little heat.

– Moscow Mule: This classic cocktail is perfect for a summer wedding. Mix vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer. Serve over ice in a copper mug.

– Gin and tonic: This classic cocktail is refreshing and easy to make. Simply combine gin, tonic water, and ice in a glass. You can garnish it with a slice of lime or lemon if you want to get fancy.

For the couple who loves wine:

-The classic wine spritzer. This refreshing drink is perfect for a summer wedding. Simply combine white wine and sparkling water in a ratio of 1:1. Add a dash of fruit juice or syrup if you like, or keep it simple with just wine and water.

-A fruity wine sangria. This is a great option if you want something a little sweeter. Combine red wine, brandy, orange juice, lemonade, and chopped fruit in a pitcher. Let it sit for a few hours so the flavors can meld, then serve over ice.

For the couple that loves Champagne: 

The most popular choice for a wedding toast, and for good reason! It’s festive, bubbly, and the perfect way to celebrate your big day. But what if you’re not a champaign fan? Or what if you’re looking for something a little different? Here are some other great options for your wedding toast:

– Prosecco: A light, sparkling wine that originates from Italy. Prosecco is often less expensive than champagne, making it a great option if you’re on a budget.

– Cava: Another type of sparkling wine, cava is produced in Spain. It tends to be dryer than champagne or prosecco, making it a good choice if you’re looking for something a little less sweet.

– Peach Bellini: Start with a glass of sparkling wine or Champagne and add white peach puree. For an extra bit of sweetness, you can add a touch of simple syrup.
