    We had two bars during cocktail hour, one for the open bar and one for our signature cocktail. Then we switched to just open bar during the reception.

    You could post a sign that said something like your suggestions, but make sure people know they have other choices too.

    Absolutely you can. (We didn’t, but I was just at a wedding where they did. There was a little sign at the bar describing the signature cocktail.) A very nice idea for those who aren’t sure what to order!

    i am thinking about doing the same thing… We are having open bar during cocktail hour for those who dont like “fruity” drinks and then we are going to offer a signature cocktail for those who want it. I was thinking about having some already mixed and ready to go so when the walk into the bar area there will be some “ready” drinks people can just grab and those who dont like what they see can order from the bar.

    I am just trying to decide what to offer for the signature cocktail….

    We’re doing an open bar and 2 signature cocktails. I never even thought that people might get confused and think they have to order one of the signature cocktails! Maybe I should make that clear in the signage when I make it!

    On the logistics of this: is the signature cocktail made from things already present at the bar? Meaning, it wasn’t pre-mixed? For example, my Fiance and I love gin and amaretto, but our bar doesn’t carry amaretto. Is the point of having a signature drink to offer something that you couldn’t normally get at the bar?
