There are few things l love more than a good cocktail on a sunny afternoon. I mean c’mon, who’s with me? Things turn from good to great when I get to a wedding and they have an amazing signature cocktail. How much fun is that? But does your wedding really need one?
- Having a signature cocktail, or two (think his and hers) is such a fun way to add personality to your cocktail hour. But there are some other things to consider when factoring in a signature drink.
- Do you think signature cocktails are as fun as I do? Do you think it’s overkill? Will a signature cocktail add to the vibe you are going for? Will it seem out of place? Consider what your wedding day will look and feel like and then decide of a signature cocktail or two will add or take away from that.
- Is budget holding you back from committing? A signature cocktail could actual help your budget in the long run. If you are on a tight budget, consider limiting your bar service to just beer, wine and signature cocktail(s). This allows you to control the bar costs during a time when drinking can be high.
- Besides a signature concktail, you may want to consider a signature mocktail for those not drinking. Talk with your bartenders about a mocktail that doesn’t just remove alcohol from a regular cocktail. Cocktails are designed with alcohol to create the end flavour, removing the alcohol, alters the balance of the drink and it may not taste the same. Creating a mocktail without alcohol at all, will give your non-drinking guests a fun alternative to pop or water.
Now, your wedding will be just as awesome if you have a regular bar and offer standard drinks. People know what they like and will drink accordingly. Adding a signature cocktail may just be the cherry on top.
