Our Favorite Signature Cocktail Ideas from Real Weddings


Is there any better way to welcome your friends and family to your wedding reception than by handing them a refreshing drink? Sure, you could get the party started by settling for the traditional wine and beer selection, but why not have a little fun with your bar setup? One great way to make a statement and set the tone of your wedding day is by creating a signature cocktail.

Serving up a signature drink is a foolproof way to personalize your reception. It can give guests a taste of who you are as a couple by highlighting aspects of your personality or showcasing your interests. You can even elevate your beverage by featuring a custom monogram, a nod to your beloved pet, or topping it off with your all-time favorite flower.

You can also dress up your drink of choice in a way that matches your reception décor, wedding theme, or wedding color palette. Try playing around with unique flavors, and if you can’t choose just one, combine your tastes with a “his” and “hers” cocktail.

Having a signature cocktail means you have the opportunity to express your creativity and present your playful side by choosing a clever name for it. You can use play-on words, hint at your wedding location or date, or incorporate your nickname into the title of your concoction.
