A cocktail hour is even more celebratory with signature drinks dedicated to the bride and groom, and the occasion of their wedding. I've always loved the idea of a single signature drink, but here lately I have suggested my clients implement martini bars that offer a plethora of options and tastes. This is also an awesome wow-factor addition for engagement parties and bridal showers. Guests love the novelty and will definitely have fun with it.

Here are a few of my favorites, along with ingredients:

The Tuxedo
* 2 ounces London dry gin
* 1 ounce dry sherry
* 1 dash orange bitters

Sealed With A Kiss
* 2 ounces chocolate liqueur such as Godiva or Crème de Cacao
* 1.5 ounces vodka
* 1 Hershey's Kiss

Blushing Bride
* 1 ounce peach schnapps
* 1 ounce grenadine
* 4 ounces Champagne

Wedding Cake Martini
* 2 ounces vanilla vodka
* 1 ounce pineapple juice
* 1 ounce cranberry juice
* 1 teaspoon artificial sweetener (1 package)


The Proposal
* 2 ounces vodka
* 1 ounce triple sec
* Squeeze of fresh lime juice
* Splash of cranberry juice

Signature drinks are so much fun... from choosing ingredients, to the presentation, to creating a fun and funky name!

I love when weddings have signature drinks. I'm going to have to test some of these myself. ;)
