How To Make A Fall Signature Wedding Cocktail
No matter what the size of your wedding, there is always so much to think about, so making a to-do list as early as possible is a good idea. We know that your wedding dress is at the top of your list, but don’t forget to add a signature cocktail. It’s very trendy to have your own cocktail, this can be your own creation, your special forever drink. But if you do decide on a signature drink, remember that you cannot please everyone’s palette, so try to incorporate something that most people will drink in their everyday lives. Also make two cocktails, this will give the guests an option.
Lots of couples have a theme for their wedding, so this can also be taken into consideration when you come up with your special cocktails. For example, if your theme is a bohemian or rustic style wedding, a rustic wedding, you could set up an old trailer, there are many used for sale that could be bought at a budgeted price. Your trailer can be painted in a vintage or rustic color, surrounded with some fairy lights or lanterns, wildflowers, bails of hay, and some old wooden pieces that could be made into signs advertising your signature drinks. If you cannot find a trailer, find a handyman to put together your bar with some old recessed wood and paint some fun old-fashioned quotes. Buy some mason jars, some old-fashioned straws that are biodegradable, and paper napkins decorated with wildflowers, or have them monogrammed. Below are some cocktail ideas for your signature cocktails, one could also choose to make it a lighter drink with low alcohol content. All served chilled.
For a more classic or traditional wedding, replace the mason jars with martini glasses, whiskey and tumbler glasses. If there is already a bar at the location, instruct the bartender on what signature cocktails you would like to have served. Make sure to have some fun cocktail picks to dress up your drinks with fruit or vegetables and small cocktail napkins with the bride and grooms’ initials.
