- Champagne Mojitos
Use two great drinks to create the cocktail of your dreams. This two-in-one cocktail combines rum, sugar syrup, mint, and Angostura bitters like the regular mojito, but topped with champagne. Why drink a regular mojito when you can make a sparkling one?
- Rum and Coke Minis
Personalize your wedding cocktails as much as you want. Serve a good old Cuba Libre by mixing rum, coke, and lime, but in mini coke bottles for your guests. The perfect non-traditional wedding cocktail for the win.
- Pineapple Peach Vodka
For signature vodka drinks, we have the pineapple peach vodka. Sometimes known as the pineapple peach vodka slush, this can be made in a myriad of ways. The perfect custom drink for a party, you can also give your guests these as party favors to drink on the go. Mix frozen peaches with peach juice, banana, and vodka, and you have the most beautiful drink for a fun-filled wedding reception.
- Pretty in Pink
Another refreshing summer drink is this option of pink Sparkling Rosé, combined with vodka and orange liqueur (triple sec). This being just one way to make it, there are quite a number of recipes for this fun drink. A great choice for an outdoor wedding, it can be garnished with raspberries, and the finish is a pretty pink wedding cocktail.
- Bathtub Gin
If you love the classics, retro and old school, then you might appreciate this reference to the prohibition era. Instead of serving in bottles, infuse gin with your choice of fruits and bottles in mason jars. For some more creativity, serve in a bathtub filled with ice. You can’t get more ingenious than that.
The joy of signature cocktails and wedding drinks is that you don’t have to pick only one. For a more fun and colourful drink selection, choose the options that best resonate with you and replace their names with more creative and personalized titles. You could also serve your guests in customized glasses with their name on them, so they find a reason to take them home to remember your wedding. You could also add drink tags to your signature wedding drinks, with words like “Just Married” on the tags.
