When it comes to weddings, it’s all about celebrating your love. From the custom cake topper in the likeness of you and your sweetie, to your new monogram projected on the dance floor, the big day is filled with details symbolizing your union. While Martha Stewart would be proud of how many personalized touches you’ve incorporated, we bet there’s one that slipped your mind: signature cocktails!
Already have “your drink”? Stick with your classic. Looking for a unique way to express your personalities? Invent something new—name and all.
When taking route two, Caitlin Frederici, sales manager/event coordinator at Vizcaya, suggests choosing a drink with seasonal fresh fruits or working closely with your bartender to develop a hand-crafted blend. He or she can even create a cocktail to match your wedding colors!
“Various venues have bartenders and mixologists who are knowledgeable about what liquors blend and taste well together and some are able to do tastings for couples to determine if it would be something their guests would enjoy drinking at their event,” Frederici says.
If you can’t agree on just one drink, have a “bride” and “groom” drink. Menus posted at the bar will let guests know the drinks of the day.
And for the ultimate in fun drinks, try a shot luge ice sculpture, suggests Frederici. And yes, it is exactly as it sounds.
