Beautiful CocktailsThe idea of the signature drink has been common at weddings for a few years now. While not all couples opt to create a unique beverage to serve to guests, there is a lot of fun to be had in the challenge. Some people enjoy putting as many unique spins on their nuptials as possible. If you want to personalize every detail, then a signature cocktail is definitely a great option. To make the task a bit less challenging, review these tips and get a general idea of how to create a drink the crowd will love. 

Consider What You Like

The easiest way to get started is by thinking about your own favorite drinks. What do you and your partner prefer sipping on when you’re at home? What do you order when you go out to eat or prepare when you’re having friends over? Beginning with personal favorites can give you an easy point of reference to work from. You’ll be drinking the signature cocktails as well, so you want to be sure the beverage you create is one that appeals to your own tastes.

Naturally, you don’t want to build a cocktail around your own preferences if you’ve got very unique likes and dislikes. If you make all of your drinks with sambuca, for example, it can be difficult to please a crowd with a liquor that has such a specific taste to it. Still, beginning with your preferences can help you discover clever ways to use your own favorite in a drink that has more appeal to your guests. 

Think About What Your Guests Like

The guests at your wedding are usually people you have shared a drink or two with over the years. This means that you have a bit of insight on what they may like and dislike. If you know for a fact that a majority of your aunts drink vodka-based concoctions, then you can easily create a signature cocktail using this knowledge. Keep in mind that there will always be a handful of guests who show no interest in your drink. Since you can’t please every single person, simply try to satisfy the largest percentage possible. 

Delve Into Current Trends

The world of mixology is constantly changing and evolving. If you want to create a memorable beverage for your big day, you can always benefit from digging into the latest trends sweeping the alcohol industry. For example, the Moscow mule was a drink that was first created in 1948 but saw a huge resurgence in popularity after 2007. Looking over blogs and magazines about cocktails can not only help you learn about current fads, it can show you what classic drinks are making a comeback and help you find the right fit for your nuptials. 

Picking a popular drink without tasting it first is also a mistake you should avoid. There are lots of libations that sound great on paper and actually taste terrible in reality. Have the drink made for you and really give yourself a chance to taste it and see if you like it before you commit.

Work With a Pro

Finding a perfect cocktail isn’t a journey you need to go on alone. There are plenty of professional bartenders and mixology specialists who can offer insight on what to select. In fact, there are many who will speak with a couple and offer recommendations based on the general personality traits and interests. Though it is your own signature cocktail, there is no rule saying it needs to be thought up entirely by you. 

The signature drink is a fun way to add another personal touch to your big day. If you think this is a good fit for your wedding, think over all of the exciting cocktail options in front of you.
