5 Signature Cocktail Recipes You Need to Try

One of the most delicious ways to personalize your cocktail hour and open bar is to create a signature cocktail. Grab your honey-to-be and make like mixologists as you experiment with your favorite liquors and mixers to create a cocktail that sums up your personalities and tastes. Give your custom drink a fun name – taking your own names into account ("Molly-tini" or "Peterson Piña Colada") or the location of the wedding ("Manhattan Sunrise") – and don't forget to select a stylish glass and delicious garnishes!

In cases of smaller spending limits, it's perfectly acceptable to serve beer, wine, or only a signature cocktial if your ideal budget doesn't allow for an open bar. Or, skip the beer and wine altogether and stick with a Champagne toast and your signature cocktails for the rest of the evening. Below, we're sharing some of the creative, tasty signature cocktails dreamed up by real brides and grooms that have graced the pages of our magazine. Mix up some signature cocktails yourself to get your creative juices flowing!
