Sip Sip Hooray – Signature Cocktails
October 18, 2019
Our couples are always looking for fun ways to customize their wedding day, and one of the trendiest ideas we have seen consistently over the past few years has been adding a signature cocktail. Signature cocktails are a great way to incorporate a play on words for anything bridal. You can even mix in your professional or personal lives into these artisan drinks. Some couples choose to honor their beloved pets with a signature cocktail named after them, while others incorporate their partners nickname into the drink or stay on theme by choosing a cocktail that includes the wedding colors.
Prosecco has been rising in popularity as the main ingredient in signature cocktails, but you can take this to the next level by adding extra sweetness with cotton candy. Cotton candy has been making an appearance on the tops of prosecco glasses for a stunning aesthetic and tasty treat.
We love pairing rosé prosecco with pink cotton candy for an extra feminine touch. If you’re going for more muted tones, you can choose white cotton candy with traditional prosecco as well. Our favorite recipe is the Fairy Floss made with Cotton Candy (Pink or White), Prosecco, and St. Germain liqueur.
Signature cocktails also give you another opportunity to stunt some stunning décor. Signature cocktails often come with custom signage for your guests to know what options are available. We’re in love with using acrylic, marble or quartz as the base, and adding either personal photos, calligraphy, or watercolor prints.
Some of our stand-out favorite signature cocktails are the Bubbling Bride (Champagne, Agave, & Peach Schnapps), the Grinning Groom (Tequila, Grapefruit, Lime Garnish), the Honeybee (Orange Blossom, Honey, White Rum, Fresh Lemon Juice and Orange Zest), and the Mint-to-Be Mojito (Strawberries, Mint, Light Rum, Simple Syrup, Lime Juice, Club Soda).
We also suggest using seasonal ingredients for your signature cocktails. If you’re getting hitched in the fall, be sure to use aromatic cinnamon or apple, or if your special day falls in the summer, we would suggest using zesty lemon, lime or orange.
