Signature Drink Ideas

Brad and I were graciously invited to go on an Ireland vacation this coming week with a couple of our college best friends and couldn’t be more excited! (Taking all suggestions if you’ve ever been!) We will definitely be hitting up the pub scene and taking in the countryside, but not sure sipping on fruity cocktails are in our plans. While I’ll only be dreaming of these signature drink ideas, make sure you’re enjoying them for me!

Hopefully you’ve been having the same beautiful warm weather that we’ve had in Baltimore this past week and can enjoy a few of these drink recipes on your back patio or poolside somewhere this summer. These recipes are also great for those of you getting married over the next few months. If you’re looking for a signature drink ideas– you’ve came to the right spot!

I’ve compiled a few of my favorites from some amazing food blogs one of them being my dear friend Molly’s,  who shares amazing recipes on her food blog WhatMollyMade . Signature wedding drinks are perfect for showing off your personal taste, providing guests a unique option at the bar and even adding a fun flare to the drink by giving it a personalized name or glassware to serve out of.

Trying to decide if you want a signature wedding drink? 

  • They show your personality and personal style as a couple
  • You can make them to match your theme – getting married in the south? Offer a signature drink with sweet tea as an ingredient! Or in a barn? You could serve them from mason jars!
  • If you’re in charge of stocking the bar for your reception, this is a good alternative to beer and wine without going overboard on the liquor. Make these at home in bulk and have your bartenders serve.

Read below to find a few recipes to inspire your drink recipe! I would love to know your favorite mixed drinks and if you’ve been wowed by a signature drink at a wedding – leave a comment below!
