@RiverBride13:  Why not skirt this issue altogether and refer to it as an “hors d’oeuvres hour” (assuming, of course, that you will, indeed, be serving hors d’oeuvres.)

What are you needing to put it on? Are you doing appetizers?

I’d probably try to change the wording to say something like, “Please enjoy drinks & appetizers in the lobby at 5 PM. The reception will begin at 6 PM.”

It just really depends where you’re putting it on how I’d do the wording. I would avoid the word cocktail though if you aren’t serving mixed drinks. (And there is nothing wrong with beer and wine only, people will still love it!)

I’m with you though, I think the key to people being happy in most situations in life is having accurate expectations.

I think people just assume cocktail hour is a transition time with alcohol and passed appitizers. I don’t think people specifically expect cocktails themselves.

I would consider beer and wine cocktail hour.  As long as there is SOME alcohol provider I think you are all good!
