Destination wedding, how to personalize it with cocktails
Deciding on the menu is already no small feat for the bride and groom, who must take into account many variations and offer guests menus that are not only delicious, but also suitable for children, the elderly and those on special dietary regimens.
Also proposing cocktails as an alternative to wines and bitters is a great idea, not only to vary the proposals, but also to show your character and taste through cocktails made especially for you. Let's talk about signature cocktails to personalize your destination wedding in Italy or abroad.
Signature cocktails are a trend that originated in the U.S. and, soon, was exported all over the world and consists of creating together with the bartender a special cocktail, tailored to the tastes and personality of the event's protagonist (in this case, the bride and groom).
By relying on a good bartender, you will be able to devise cocktails that also feature the color you have chosen for your wedding, or that trace the theme that runs throughout the event even with flavor and aroma.
As always, Caterina Lostia will be present during the test preparations of the signature cocktails and will be able to help you choose the cocktails that best represent you and fit the entire event.
We generally recommend that you choose a base alcohol, such as vodka, gin, tequila or rum, then select the flavor you like best (sweet, bitter or sour?), finally a fruit or flavor to add to the mix.
Avoid overly complex mixes and always include a nonalcoholic alternative for children and teetotalers.
Having signature cocktails prepared and offered to guests is a way to pleasantly surprise and also create a moment of hilarity since signature cocktails often carry a personalization of the bride and groom's names in a "drink" key.
Finding a special name is therefore the final step to give even more uniqueness to the choice made by husband and wife.
The bartender will be able to explain the ingredients of the two cocktails and prepare them in front of the guests' eyes, staging small acrobatic evolutions.
