As Cosmos head bartender, I say, ABSOLUTELY! It’s a really great way to share with your wedding guests either a drink you and you new spouse love or to come up with a fun drink that expresses your personality. I particularly love when each of you have your own signature drink. You can totally come up with fun names for them and add a simple chalkboard or a framed sign at the bar with the descriptions. At one wedding we did, there was a very cute competition going on between the new couple on which drink people would order more and they kept checking in with me though out the night to see who was winning. (The bride won!) It’s a really terrific way to add a personalized touch to the bar menu at your wedding.
Here are a few of my favorites as suggestions:
Cape Codder– Nothing says “classic Cape Cod” like this drink. Your favorite Vodka, cranberry juice and a lime wedge garnish. So simple yet so perfect!
Cranberry Mojito--We only use the best ingredients, fresh mint, fresh lime juice and real cranberries (AND it’s VERY Cape Cod, your guests will love it).
Dark and Stormy – Super simple to make and real crowd pleaser. It’s just Ginger Beer and Dark Rum (I recommend Goslings) and if you’re not a rum drinker, replace it with Vodka and you have a completely different drink, a Moscow Mule.
Whiskey Sour- A throwback to a bygone error but so fun at a wedding. Whiskey (of course) and homemade sour mix, no bottled stuff for our clients. Garnish with a orange and a cherry and voilà, perfection.
No matter what you decide, Cosmos can help you come up with the perfect selections for you and your guests to make your wedding a stand out.
