Couples are always looking for new and unique ideas to set their wedding apart from the rest. One way to mix it up at the bar is to create a Signature Drink, that reflects your personalities and may include some of your favourite ingredients!
If you decide on choosing one drink, coming up with a cute name is key! Perhaps where you met, the name of your pet, or a special memory. However, some couples decide to create two drinks - one catering to each spouse, and their favourite drink.
We have decided on two of our favourite drinks, that are both delicious and easy to make! You can add a special name to make it you own, and we promise not to tell ;)
The Blushing Bride
- 1 ounce fresh juice from 1 pink grapefruit
- 1 1/2 ounces bourbon
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- Garnish: grapefruit wedge (optional)
Fill a cocktail shaker 2/3 full with ice. Add grapefruit juice, bourbon, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously until well chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into ice-filled rocks glass, garnish with grapefruit wedge if desired.
The Moscow Mule
- 1/2 a lime
- 2 ounces vodka
- 4 to 6 ounces chilled ginger beer
Squeeze lime into a Collins glass (or copper mug, if you've got one) and drop in the spent lime shell. Fill glass with ice and add vodka; top with chilled ginger beer to taste.
