While signature or personalized cocktails have been a wedding trend for years, many are taking that concept in a new direction. Since these cocktails are usually served in addition to a bar stocked with wine and beer, this is a great way to cut the costs of a traditional open bar, where your guests can drink you dry.
Taking inspiration from hit shows like Mad Men, craft cocktails specifically look like something out of the sixties, and generally reflect the theme of the wedding. In addition, these cocktails can symbolize something that’s important to the special couple, be christened with a name referencing an inside joke or a beloved pet. You can even have a few of these signature drinks — one for him and one for her.
While creating your own drink might be daunting for some, ask for advice from your bartender friends. They’ll make your craft cocktails a wedding hit.
