Signature Drinks

Having a signature drink at your reception? Me too!

If you don't know what a signature drink it, it is a drink created for the wedding reception. It can be a classic drink renamed to honor the couple. For example, if the couple's last name is Smith, they could name the drink "Smith-tini" for a martini based drink. Other couples have an entire menu of drinks. It is very common to have a Something Old (Martinis), Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.

Since our color scheme was scarlet, I was hoping to find the perfect ruby red drink. This helpful website, the Drinkalizer, helps you find the drink. My criteria was that the drink be read and have either vodka or champagne.


The problem? I am completely overwhelmed. I enlisted the help of my husband. He found the perfect drink! We tried it at our tasting and agreed that it was delicious!

Like many signature drinks, I wanted to have a name. I've seen a lot of cute concepts over the past few years. I'm more of a Champagne drinker versus a Martini drinker. The two most popular champagne drinks are Mimosa's or Bellini's. After putting the entire bridal party on the project, we came up with the Misse-lini.




To let everyone know about the drink, we had drink tags created from For Your Party. The staff at the Hotel graciously tied the tags to each drink. It was a huge hit!

Here are the two ideas we opted NOT to do. Feel free to steal them. I would be happy if another couple could use these ideas!


Besides having a tasty drink, you want a visual stunning drink. What adds style them having a flower into your drink! In it? Yes! Wild Hibiscus sells flowers that are completely edible. Doesn't it look very cool?







The other idea was to use a Lite Cube. A light cube can go into your drink to give it some color. The cube is similar to an ice cube and completely safe in drinks. The cube can also be printed with your monogram.
