After all the planning that you have put into your wedding and all the thought you have put into every detail from your dress to the colors to the venue, don’t let the bar become an afterthought. Keep the beer and wine flowing, but say “we’re just married” with a signature cocktail. With clever names and seasonal flavors, these signature cocktails might just be the special touch with which you and your groom would like to toast you most recent nuptials.
1. Black & White Martini
Black and White Martini: Throwing an elegant affair? Go all black and white with your drinks by serving martinis straight up with black olive stirrers. (via Merriment Events)
2. Blueberry Mojito
Blueberry Mojito: If you’re not into blue shoes and jewelry for your “something blue” make it about your drink instead. This twist on a classic mojito is fruity from fresh blueberries and just as refreshing as the minty classic. (via A Crimson Kiss)
3. Blushing Kiss
Blushing Kiss: This grapefruit gin martini has all the makings of a fun night — and judging by its name, it should be drank immediately following your first kiss as husband and wife. (via Bakers Royal)
4. Caribbean Mist
Caribbean Mist: Consider this a cocktail for a destination wedding, inspired by the crystal blue oceans of whatever beach you and your man decided to escape to. And if you’re having a homegrown wedding, you can serve this as your something blue or in honor of your honeymoon. (via Something Turquoise)
5. Champagne and Fruit
Champagne and Fruit: Sometimes a signature drink is more about the garnishes than the alcohol, like in the case of this champagne cocktail with slices of soaked pears in glass and skewered blueberries on top. (via We Tie The Knots)
6. Champagne Mojitos
Champagne Mojitos: This is one of those two-in-one cocktails you’ve been dreaming about. The maid of honor and best man can now make their toasts to raised glasses of sparkling mojitos instead of boring ol’ champagne. And those cute umbrella-topped straws are just the best. (via Style Me Pretty)
7. Elderflower White Cosmopolitan
Elderflower White Cosmopolitan: Most are fans of anything that adds flowers to the mix. Put them in a cosmo, and you’ll find your guests at the bar all night! (via Brides)
8. Grapefruit Mimosas
Grapefruit Mimosas: This one’s for those daytime weddings — or for a bride who really likes her brunch drinks! Instead of orange juice though, use grapefruit juice and make those mimosas pink. (via Jelly Toast Blog)
9. Lavender French 75
This Lavender French 75 is the perfect cocktail for Spring! It’s light and refreshing, and so effervescent. The lavender simple syrup is super easy to make, meaning a fancy drink is always within reach. (via Love and Lemons)
10. Lavender Infusion
Lavender Infusion: Getting married in the spring? Infuse your champagne with floral lavender by adding a sprig of the purple stuff to each flute. If those lavender sprigs match your bridesmaids’ dresses, bonus points. (Bridal Musings)
11. Margarita Madness
Margarita Madness: Throw the fiesta of all fiestas by making you and your grooms’ signature drink the ultimate in tequila-infused sippers — a margarita. We can’t think of one guest who could complain about that! (via Style Me Pretty)
12. Pretty in Pink
Pretty in Pink: This is the kind of drink that should be served at an outdoor summer wedding: Refreshing from the fresh lemon juice, bubbly from sparkling wine and booze-infused with gin, it’s a hands-down winner. (via Apartment 34)
13. Rhubarb Raspberry Fizz
Rhubarb Raspberry Fizz: Feeling fruity? This pretty pink cocktail will have your guests coming back for more and more. It’s loaded with fresh rhubarb, raspberries and vanilla bean. (via Golubka Kitchen)
14. Strawberry Cachaca
Strawberry Cachaca: This drink is almost too pretty to sip! It’s mixed like a caipirinha with cane sugar, muddled strawberries and cachaca, a liquor similar to rum, made from sugar cane. (via Wedding Chicks)
15. The White Wedding
St. Germain: Give this St. Germain cocktail, made with lime, white cranberry juice and vodka, the name it deserves — The White Wedding. (via Style Me Pretty)
16. Watermelon Refresher
Watermelon Refresher: If you’re hosting summer nuptials, think about using seasonal fruit like watermelon in your cocktails. This recipe calls for a strawberry-watermelon combo, healthy splash of vodka and hints of basil, ginger and lime. (via Style Me Pretty)
Oh boy! So many delicious cocktails! I’m all about pairing my drinks to my event styling! I like the idea of a blueberry mojito for “something blue” at a wedding. Very clever. 😉 My sister is actually getting married next year so I may just have to share this post with her. xx
Thanks for your nice comment Christie. I love signature drinks at events, especially something as grand as weddings! I thought these 16 drinks were great choices for any bride. Thanks for sharing with your sister! 🙂 xo

It seems to be the favorite, Ruthie! Great drinks from which to choose! 🙂 xo

I love that you could match the colors of your wedding to your cocktails — that blueberry drink at the beginning has me thinking I need to consider blue as a color for my wedding just for that reason!
It would be so beautiful! 🙂 xo
Grapefruit mimosas it is for me! Those look scrumptious!!!!
They definitely do!! 🙂 xo
