You want to have a wonderful experience, and you want all of your guests to have an experience that they'll remember for many years. A great way to give your guests a wonderful time is to have some signature cocktails that you've created just for your big day. It doesn't matter what season it is or what your wedding theme is: You can dazzle your guests with cocktails that have pizazz and a dash of love.
The martini isn't just the go-to drink of sophistication for Mad Men fans. It is a drink that symbolizes class and affluence. The Godiva chocolate martini gives you the best of both worlds, chocolate and a martini. Simply add Godiva Original Liqueur to Ciroc vodka and put it in a martini glass. The result is sophistication and deliciousness at its finest.
Cotton Candy Cocktail
Put fun and sweetness into your signature cocktails at your wedding reception. Simply place a bit of cotton candy at the top of a glass of champagne. Not only will it give it a bit of pizazz, but you can also choose the color of cotton candy and match it to your wedding colors.
You can have rock candy cocktails in any color, but this great recipe makes a beautiful blue cocktail. Mix two ounces of Hpnotiq, one ounce of citrus vodka, and a splash of white cranberry juice. Mix in a cocktail shaker, pour into a chilled cocktail glass, and add a rock candy stick in blue. This way, you have a delicious drink and you'll have your "something blue" for your wedding.
For a more informal reception, you can make this beautiful green and delicious drink by the pitcher. You'll need ¼ cup agave nectar, ¾ cup basil or tarragon, four fresh limes, ½ cup of water and 40 ounces of chilled seltzer. In a saucepan, mix the agave nectar and water and bring it to a simmer, stirring continuously. After this has completely cooled, put it in the blender, add your basil or tarragon, and puree until completely smooth. To get rid of the solid pieces, pour the mixture through a fine strainer. Quarter your lime and squeeze each part into a large pitcher. Then, zest a bit of the rind into the pitcher for extra flavor. Add your syrup and the seltzer and gently mix. Drop in a few slices of lime and serve over ice. This memorable cocktail will result in a beautiful lime green color that will be packed with flavor.
If you are getting married on a beautiful, warm summer day, you'll need a bright and tasty cocktail to accompany your reception. Watermelon margaritas will give your guests a delicious explosion of sweetness and summertime in their mouths. In a saucepan, bring ½ cup sugar, ½ cup water and the zest of a large orange (or two small oranges) to a rolling boil on high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about three to five minutes, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let this cool in a mixing bowl for about 30 minutes. Using a blender, puree two cups of watermelon cubes until they are completely smooth. Pour this cup (or so) of liquid into your mixing bowl. Stir in ¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice and ¾ cup of silver or white tequila. After you've mixed this together, dip the tops of your glasses in lime juice, then in salt to salt each glass. Pour in your drink mixture and add a garnish of lime to each glass. Your guests will enjoy this summertime treat as they celebrate your wedding day.
Every bride deserves a wonderful wedding day filled with memories and good times. In order to have a great time with your guests, you'll want to introduce these wonderful signature cocktails. Make sure that everyone drinks responsibly and has an excellent time.
