How to Pick a Signature Cocktail to Match your Event

Planning an event or wedding is no easy task, there’s no denying that, but if there is one thing that’ll lift up your spirits, it’s picking out your signature cocktail. A good signature cocktail will not only be the perfect complement to your event but will leave all your guests with a night to remember. 

Here are just a few tips and tricks to keep in mind when finding your signature cocktail. 

The Look

Depending on the event you’re hosting, your cocktail should hold a certain look so that it fits in perfectly with the theme. While you may want to go for a more classy look with a wedding, brunches and open summer events may call for a more fun and lighter appearance. Colors, such as warmer or cooler tones, glassware, and garnishes are all things to be taken into consideration when making this drink. 

The Drink

The drink itself should be simple enough to make, but tasty enough for its simplicity. Though we would all want a complex drink that holds many different components from the liquor to the garnishes, nobody is going to want to wait in line for that long for just one drink. Utilizing a few simple ingredients such as mint, citrus, and simple syrup can go a long way as there are many uses to those items and you can use those in other drink orders. 

The Weather

The drinks should also complement the weather. On colder nights, you would want a cocktail that has rum, bourbon, or whiskey in it since it’ll warm you up. With these liquors, you could make anything from a martini to a classic old fashion. For warmer weather, however, you will want something more refreshing such as gin, tequila, or vodka. 


With any event you go to, nobody there is going to have the same taste in alcohol. For this reason, you should definitely consider giving 2 options for your signature drink so that there’s something for everyone. While one could be more straightforward and bitter, the other can be an airy, refreshing drink. 

The Name

Last but most certainly not least, should be the name. As it is called a signature drink, your drink should have a background story or name that’ll give it a more personal touch. Whether it be a drink in commemoration of a person or event, or simply a homage to one’s culture, the drink should add onto the event not only for the taste but the story behind it.
