We aren’t going to have a full open bar, just beer, wine and signature drinks.
I think we’re going to have 2 signature drinks, each of us picking one.
Is anyone else having a signature drink? How did you choose? Was it color inspired, theme inspired or just taste buds inspired???

I would like to have signature drinks too so I’d love to get some inspiration from other bees.

We are having an open bar of beer, house wine and a signature drink. I picked a malibu bay breeze.
1. It’s my favorite drink
2. It’s a very close color to the wedding…lol

We’re having an open bar, but with our restaurant its a set rate for 3 hrs. I’m thinking that after 3hrs we go straight to beer/wine/sig drink. Out signature drink, either way, is going to be a caipirinha. A caipirinha is a Brazilian drink, similar to a mojito, but without mint. It’s basically sugar, lime and vodka…and you would never know there was vodka, rather dangerous!
We picked it because my Fiance is Brazilian and it’s practically the national drink down there. I actually based my colors around the drink as the main color will be green (like the limes in the drinks!)

We just had our engagement party over the weekend. We had two signature drinks for the party. We took the first part of our names and added “tini” to the end, even though both were not martinis. It was just cute. So the Sam-Tini was a green apple martini (something almost everyone likes and green is a more boyish color) and Jes-Tini was champagne with cranberry pomergrante juice (pink because pink is so me). Straberries and cherries to garnish. They were a super huge hit!! People tend to not realize it is not a “full” bar when the signature drinks look so delicious that just have to try them! If you and your FH were from different cities, you could do drink names to relate to that.

We are doing a lemon drop martini because yellow is our color, we are also going to offer a frozen lemonade drink (non alcoholic) because most of my FI’s family does not drink.

I’d pick something that the has to do with the couple (where you are from or where you are going on your honeymoon) over color. The color might work out but I wouldn’t drink a grape juice cocktail just because the bridesmaids are wearing purple.

i think you should choose something you like.
We had a Blushing Bride cocktail during cocktail hour. We didn’t choose it because of its colour, just more so that it tasted good to us and sounded like something our guests would be willing to try.

We are also doing a signature drink, our bar will be similar to yours. we are choosing a red and a white wine, a domestic and an import beer and two signature cocktails (one for each of us.) I have also had a hard time choosing a cocktail. try and pick something that goes with your wedding colors. my wedding colors are champagne and black, so we have had a hell of a time picking out two cocktails that will fit with our scheme, actually we haven’t even found two signature drinks yet!

Yummy, I love caipirinhas. I used to work a t a bar and we served them, but we used a cane sugar liquor (like non-sweet rum).

we’re doing wine, beer and 1 signature drink… “Mexican Brew” (don’t worry, we’ll rename it lol). It’s limeade, beer and vodka. We picked it because
1- it tastes good
2- it’s not too sweet
3- non-beer drinkers always like it
I’ve piloted it at some different parties to make sure it’s a hit (it hasn’t failed yet!)
