A signature wedding cocktail is another fun way to personalize your wedding. You can complement your wedding colors or even your wedding theme with your cocktail, or share a special drink that you as a couple enjoy. As a bonus, print the cocktail recipe on a coaster or card for guests to take home and recreate themselves.
Many couples consider providing signature cocktails as a cost-cutting measure--you can choose to serve your signature cocktails, beer, and wine instead of an open bar. As you look for a signature cocktail, make sure to take note of what ingredients may or may not be in season. Beautiful summer berries from the local farmer's markets can be a delicious and economical resource. Try this cocktail created by Hennessy, which uses fresh blueberries in a refreshing and colorful cocktail.
