Signature Cocktails

Signature cocktails are a great way to add a more personal touch to your wedding or event. Although these drinks are usually based on a color that will echo that of the decor/theme, more and more people are choosing to offer their favorite drinks. Here are three ways to make sure your drink of choice is on the menu for your guests.

1. Meet with a mixologist…a mixologist is someone that specializes in creating drinks. It is this talent that makes a mixologist different from your friendly bartender. Meeting with a mixologist is sure to result in something that is truly signature. It can even be named by/after you! When you go into your meeting, make sure that you have a few things in hand: A color (if  this matters), favorite flavors, and if there is a specific alcohol you’d like to use.

2. Meet with the bartender at your venue…if your venue comes with an in-house bartender(s), make sure you meet at the venue to ensure that the drink you’re looking for can be created there. Different from meeting with a mixologist, you may need to either choose something off of the menu in place or walk through the drink you’d like with him/her/them.

3. DIY….there’s always a do it yourself option isn’t it? 🙂 Some venues will allow you to come with your drink pre-mixed for your guests. If this is the case, make sure you arrive with your drink in hand at least an hour to two hours before the start of your event. This will allow the bartenders to wrap their heads around it, chill it properly, store it, and/or ask any questions that they need to.

Below are some great sites to assist you in finding your signature cocktail if you won’t be in the “lab” with a mixologist. The first site (the knot) even lets you choose by color and season.

*Always remember that all of your guests won’t be drinkers (or depending on your event, may not be of age). It’s always nice to go the extra step and create “mocktails” for them. Some are sure to appreciate your having the non-alcoholic versions available!*
