We’re having two signature cocktails, one is a french martini and the other is an old-fashioned, since those are our favorite drinks. A french martini may be perfect for your wedding since it kind of matches your color scheme!  Here are the ingredients:

French Martini
2 oz Vodka
½ oz Chambord
2 ½ oz Pineapple Juice

French Martini:  1.5 oz vodka   1/2 oz Chambord   2 oz. pineapple juice     Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a pineapple wedge or a leaf from the pineapple for a sleek modern look.      Read more: Holiday Drink Recipes - Christmas Drink Recipes - Cocktail Recipes - Marie Claire

I would go with a vodka mixed drink, a tequila mixed drink, and something “manlier” like a whiskey mixed drink or something. Be sure one of them is plenty girly =).

@IowaDDS13:  Hey another Bee from Iowa!

We had two signature drinks which were both a huge hit! Both are light and didn’t taste too strong.

The Wave – pineapple juice, sour mix, vodka, and blue curaçao

White Beach – peach schnapps, white gin, pineapple juice and Sprite

How about one vodka, one rum, and one… something else. Ha.

For a vodka cocktail, I’d go with a cosmpolitan or pink flamigo (both of which are basically vodka-cranberries with splashes of other things).

For rum, how about a punch? There are lots of great recipes… rum runners, etc.

For the third drink, you could do a Manhattan (whiskey), a martini, or a margarita.

We’re having a traditional margarita on the rocks for grooms choice and a Caipiroska (brown sugar simple syrup, vodka, lime) as the brides signature drink!

@IowaDDS13:  Eventually it will thaw out haha! We got so lucky on our wedding because we didn’t have power at our home for the entire week leading up to it, thankfully the town that we had the wedding it didn’t get the ice that we did! Any luck deciding on a signature drink yet?

We need to rename them still…


Corpse Reviver No. 2 – Gin, Lillet Blanc, Cointreau, lemon juice, absinthe, garnished with a amarena cherry.

Blood and Sand – Whiskey, sweet vermouth, Cherry Heering, orange juice, garnished with an orange peel

Not really a signature drink, but we’ll have traditional Absinthe drips!

3rd Iowa wedding on this board!! Crazy! I’m getting married September 1st, so it will still be pretty summery (you never know, it could be like 90 knowing Iowa weather) and this is what we are planning: 

Something Blue(berry): Blueberry simple syrup, mint, gin, soda water (sort of like a gin fizz)

Something Old(fashioned): Templeton rye, bitters, simple syrup, garnished with orange and cherry (classic old fashioned)

Me and Fiance don’t particularly like vodka but we like gin, and we wanted to incorporate Templeton too!

@IowaDDS13:  What are you going to store them in if you’re remaking them? 


Oh and this is what we’ve got so far. We’re only going to pick 2 of them though.


Purple hooter:

1/3 part absolute vodka

1/3 part chambord raspberry liquer

1/3 part pineapple juice


Blue moon cocktail:

Rimming sugar

1 ounce vodka

1/2 ounce blue curacao

3 ounces lemonaide


Blue seafoam:

3/4 oz blueberry flavored vodka

3/4 oz vanilla flavored vodka

Splash of blue curacao


Coco snowball:

2 oz stolichnaya vanilla

2 oz malibu rum

2 oz coco lopez

1/4 oz blue curacao


My mom is paying for our open bar and she’s going to use one of her friends thats a bartender, so we’re going to get together and make them and try them out before we choose which 2 we’re gonna use.

the grooms will be a 7&7, which wouldn’t work so well for you guys since it involves 7up. We are calling it “The Golden Groom”. Mine is a blueberry margarita, or just any margarita that is blue in color. It will be called “The Starry-Eyed Bride”.


I agree with PP’s that a vodka based drink and a rum based drink will be pretty universially popular choices. And then go with a whiskey or bourbon based drink as well!

Do you have a theme?  That might help in naming the drinks.  But if you are having 3 signature drinks, I would definitely do 1 froo-froo and 1 more manly drink.
