Signature Cocktails

To add a personal and fun touch to your wedding, create a signature cocktail you can serve your guests during cocktail our or during the entire event. To help find ideas think of you and your partner's favorite cocktail, different seasonal flavors and colors.  Below are some images and cocktail recipes I have found:


Orangesicle Cocktail (One of my favorites):
Ice cubes
Orange Juice
Vanilla flavored Vodka
Vanilla Ice Cream
Orange Soda
Directions: Place ice cubes, vanilla ice cream, vanilla flavored vodka and orange juice in a blender and blend well. Pour 3/4 full into serving glass. Equally top each glass with orange soda. Dip orange slices in sugar and place on rim of glass for garnish.

Peach Martini:
2 fl. oz. vanilla-flavored vodka
1 fl. oz. peach schnapps
2 fl.oz. fresh peach nectar*
1/2 fl. oz. fresh lime juice
Ice Cubes
Peach Slice (for garnish)
chilled martini glass
*Fresh Peach Nectar
You’ll need enough soft, ripe peaches (about 1/2 lb. by weight) to equal 1 cup of sliced peaches.  Boil enough water in a pot to be able to just submerge the peaches.  Place the peaches in the water just long enough for their skins to loosen, then immediately remove them and shock them in some ice water. You should be able to easily remove the skins with your hands.  Peel the peaches, remove the pit, and slice them.
Combine 1 cup of sliced peaches and 1/2 cup of water in a blender and liquefy until smooth and free of chunks.  Next, strain the peach puree through a sieve.  You can store this for 3-5 days in a glass jar or bottle in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it

Add the vodka, peach schnapps, peach nectar, and lime juice into a martini shaker along with some ice.  Shake until thoroughly mixed and chilled, then strain into a chilled martini glass.  Garnish with a slice of fresh peach.
