Signature cocktails are becoming a major trend in weddings and we absolutely love it. Have you considered how to create your personalized beverage for your big day? We have a couple tips on how to concoct and display these drinks for your guests to enjoy all night long!
Consider The Season
When coming up with your recipe, consider the season of your wedding — even if you’re planning in advance! A summer day calls for a more refreshing sip than the flavors in season in the winter. Then, talk to your caterer or bartender. Ask their professional opinion based on where they pick up their ingredients, what will mix well, and what will have the freshest flavors. Make sure you are choosing a cocktail that reflects your personal taste. If you never drink vodka, definitely don’t make it your main ingredient.
Make A Clever Display
Wedding signage is trending and the perfect way to show off your creations! Match your menu calligraphy and set up an easel with the beverages and their ingredients for your guests. Stand the display by the bar so they can order your cleverly named creation with ease. Play with the same to create a clever pun or his and hers style menu. The way you present the drinks will entice your guests to give them a try!
