Hello! Today we’re talking about signature cocktails for weddings. When planning your handmade wedding, one of the best (+ easiest!) ways to customize your food and drink menu is by offering a signature cocktail. A signature cocktail is your own special drink either served up exclusively or as a recommendation to your guests. You can create one signature cocktail – or – create your favorite and ask your honey to select one of their own. If you love deliciously fruity cocktails, today’s post is for you. We’ve teamed up with the folks at Dailys Cocktails to talk about five favorite signature cocktails for weddings using a few of their recipes (+ a splash of our own inspiration). We’ve DIYed these signature wedding drinks ourselves in our very own EB office kitchen to give you a sampling of what to expect when becoming your own mixologist. And, boy, did we have fun. Who knew there were so many ways to craft your signature drink! We hope you enjoy the cocktails we’ve created!
5 Signature Cocktails for Weddings
This was our first time ever using Dailys new cocktail mixers, even though we’ve always wanted to try them. They come in easy-to-serve pouches which can be chilled or frozen, depending on your drink preference. Now it’s easy to have instant margaritas, daiquiris, spiked punch, and more from the convenience of your fridge. Dailys brand cocktails and cocktail mixers are a great product brides can use to be creative and ready for anything — ready to celebrate, ready to entertain, even ready for “I Do!” Use them at your bachelorette party (great for the limo ride as they’re no mess and no glass!), serve at your engagement party, or our favorite… serve as an ingredient in signature cocktails for weddings.
In this post, we used Dailys Cocktails website (+ their inviting, totally innovative recipe search with TONS of drink ideas!) and some of our favorite Dailys Cocktails ingredients to create some fun signature wedding cocktails for inspiration. We hope you enjoy!
* denotes our own creation
1. The Bride’s Something Blue*
This is our exclusive Emmaline Bride signature cocktail! We designed it with the bride-to-be in mind, provided she uses a straw and doesn’t spill any on her gorgeous white gown. (This stuff is one intense shade of blue.)
-3/4 oz. Dailys sweet + sour mix
-3 oz blue curacao (chilled)
-3/4 oz. vodka
-salt for glass rim
Mix ingredients. Make sure the blue curacao is cold. (Or serve over ice.)
2. Spiked Piña in a Jar*
It would be fun to serve this one up in a huge punch bowl + give guests jars (we used jelly jars, as guests would get pretty tanked with a full mason jar) from which to drink. Don’t forget the striped straws!
For one jar…
-3 oz. Dailys piña colada
-1 oz. Dailys sweet and sour mix
Mix and serve over ice.
3. Sparkling Strawberry Champagne
This one’s easy! We found it at Dailys here. Though, how did they get it to look so gloriously gradient? We tried, but ours was more of a rosy hue. Still loved it though! All you need is…
-1 oz. Dailys Strawberry Daiquiri (chilled)
-3 oz. chilled champagne
Mix champagne and daiquiri mix. Serve in champagne flute with strawberry slice inside.
4. Peach Fuzz Daiquiri
This one comes straight from Dailys Cocktails recipes page. And… might we add, it’s quite delicious.
-1 oz. white rum
-4 oz. DAILY’s peach mix
-1 oz. crushed ice
Blend ingreidents. Serve with sliced peach as garnish.
5. Spiked Limeade*
We were looking for something with a tart and tangy punch… and, well, we got it. We definitely got creative with this one.
-3 oz. Dailys Lemonade
-a splash of lime juice
-1 oz. Dailys sweet and sour mix
-3/4 oz. rum
Mix. Pour in glass. Serve over ice cubes with lime slice as garnish.
So, which one did we like best? Definitely the peach. So. good. Plus, it’s a perfect icy signature cocktail for weddings in the summer.
