Top Tips for your Wedding Day Signature Cocktails


















Signature cocktails are a great way to make your wedding celebration more festive & personal . They can play a key role in your wedding style, theme & colour.





















Things to take into consideration:

  • Your guests: While you can’t please everyone, if you opt for more than one cocktail it will appeal to a wider range of guests. You might decide to serve a non-alcoholic cocktail also! Guests will find a vodka based cocktail easier to drink than Bourbon, Cognac and Tequila. Some guests may have some allergy reactions to specific ingredients so always good to have the bar list ingredients for guests to see.

  • Fresh Ingredients: Fresh & in seasonal fruits, homemade juices and syrups will give your cocktails better taste & appeal. Using fresh ingredients make a higher quality cocktail and it contain less sugar than pre-packaged mixers, so better for your guests health!

  • Season: The time of year can give you great inspiration and wonderful to reflect the flavours of the season.
