Wedding Season is here! The Venue and Vendors are booked, the date is approaching. As you zone in on food and beverage items, be sure to include a Signature Cocktail that is fun and delicious! It should represent the two of you, either as a couple, or individually! Here are some guidelines to follow.
* For all Seasons. Be sure your drink is Season appropriate. Something with a lot of ice on a hot Summer day- or maybe something Warm for a winter Wedding. Your Signature Cocktails should stand out and be something Guests can look back and say “Remember that drink we had at Jen and Jim’s Wedding? That would be perfect right now!”
* Proper Presentation. A drink is an accessory, just like your rings or cufflinks. You want to be sure your guests will want to drink them and also that they are easy to hold or carry. Choose glassware wisely and also the garnish.
* Ingredients and Strength. Your Cocktail should not only be easy to choose- it should be somewhat easy to make- and drink! The last thing we want is a guest to order one and it take the Bartender 10 minutes to gather the ingredients. Also be sure they are not too strong, we want your guests to come back for more!!
* Include your stoyr. Most Signature drinks have a meaning behind them. Whether it be Signature to the Couple, or to the day itself, include your story in the name or description. Maybe have a “His and Hers” with your personal favorite drinks. Or maybe you got engaged on the Bay, so your Signature is a Bay Breeze. Or perhaps your wedding lands on Cinco de Mayo – let’s have Margaritas! The options are endless so why not choose one (or two!) that means something special.
