Another benefit to signature drinks is that they are budget friendly. Having a bar that is set reduces the bar costs, making it one less issue for the couple.

The drinks can be meaningful, like the first drink you had as a couple. Or the drinks can be named after something special to both the bride and groom, like the local drink of the honeymoon destination. The theme could be color coordinated with the wedding party, or even have a romantic name like Cranberry Kiss.

Whatever the theme, a cocktail (or two or three) can be crafted that fits the personality, theme, or creativity of the bride and groom. It will be special no matter what because it is all for the couple, but the guests will surely enjoy the personal touch.

Here are a few ideas for wedding specialty cocktails.

Golden Raspberry Prosecco

Ingredients

3 cups golden raspberries, plus more for garnish
6 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 bottle Prosecco (750 ml)

Directions

  1. In a medium heatproof bowl combine raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice; cover tightly with plastic wrap. With a small paring knife, poke three holes in the top of the plastic wrap.
  2. Bring a medium saucepan filled halfway with water to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Place the bowl with the raspberry mixture on top of saucepan and let cook without stirring for 1 hour. Remove bowl from heat, and strain through a fine-mesh sieve (do not push on the berries); let cool. Divide the syrup among Champagne flutes and top each with 4 ounces Prosecco. Garnish with raspberries and serve immediately.
