Liquor of the Year: Hola Tequila!

According to the Huffington Post, the liquor of the year for weddings is Tequila!  There are so many ways to incorporate tequila in to your wedding and one of the easiest ways is to have tequila in your signature drink.  A signature drink is usually passed during the cocktail hour and gives guests a glimpse in to the reception.  What shows your wedding reception will be a fun party more than tequila?!

Of course the most popular drink with tequila is a margarita (which guests will love) but if you want a twist on the traditional margarita try looking at some of these great nontraditional tequila recipes by WedShare.

Favorite Fall Signature Drinks

Brides everywhere are having signature drinks at their wedding!!  Signature drinks add a level of personality to your event and are always a favorite among guests.  In some cases, it is a great way to save money on alcohol expenses. For example, you can decide to only serve a signature drink and non-alcoholic beverages during the cocktail hour to extend your bar time for the reception.  I love signature drinks that are unique and Fall is a great time to think outside the box and choose a Fall Signature Drink that fits the weather and not the color scheme. I have listed below some of my favorite Fall Signature Drinks…

Apple cider is always a favorite for Fall. Garnished with a cinnamon stick it makes the perfect signature drink for a Fall wedding.

Another favorite is Hot Chocolate.  Who doesn’t love a cup of hot chocolate on a chilly day?  You can even have a hot chocolate station where guests can put their favorite toppings like whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate shavings.

  If you want a twist to the traditional Fall favorites try a mulled cranberry cider.  This drink is made with cranberry and orange juice, allspice berries, ginger, and port wine.  Check out the recipe here.

One of my favorites is a pumpkin eggnog martini!  This drink is made with almond milk, dark rum, pumpkin puree, egg whites, pumpkin pie spice and ground nutmeg.  Yummy!

Signature Drinks

Signature drinks are one of the best ways to make your wedding unique!   Whether you are having an alcoholic bar or non-alcoholic bar…serving one of your favorite drinks or even a drink in your wedding colors is a fun way to treat your guests.  I have listed below some of my favorite drink ideas.  With many of these drinks you can leave out the alcohol and still serve a great non-alcoholic beverage for your wedding.  I love the idea of taking one of these drinks and naming it something special (try smashing up your name with your fiancés last name and see what you get)!

If you are having an outside wedding, a cute idea is to have a signature drink served before the ceremony.  Your guests can sip on a refreshing drink handpicked by you.  If you decide to do this, I would suggest having a non-alcoholic drink so that all of your guests can enjoy during the ceremony and have an alcoholic drink served after the ceremony!
