Eat, drink and be MARRIED- Signature Wedding Cocktails

January marks the start of wedding planning season. All the best wedding shows are happening and there are so many decisions to make. The good news is- even more fun than sampling wedding cakes is sampling signature cocktails!

There are many things about your wedding that your guests may not remember, but your signature cocktail is one they very likely will recall! Especially if it’s not so tasty… Thankfully we have a whole array of great cocktail suggestions that are sure to please everyone. Including the bartender who will be thrilled with a not so complicated recipe!

So, how do you go about choosing your signature cocktail? There are lots of things to take into consideration.

Color
Season
Location
Theme
Your favorite drink

Your drinks do not have to match your color scheme, but with all of our HDC Flavored Vodkas that shouldn’t be hard to do. If your favorite cocktail doesn’t match your color scheme you can always use the garnish as a way to tie it in.

1oz HDC Peach Vodka

Sometimes just picking your favorite cocktail is the best way to celebrate and- it’s your wedding so you can name it anything you want! If you love a Gin & Tonic with a squeeze of lime and you want to name it ‘Main Squeeze’, remember, your wedding, your prerogative! Have that bartender stick that lime on a pink hued drink pick to match your pink hued flowers and you are good to go!

Now lets eat, drink and be MARRIED!
