Signature cocktails are always a huge hit at Tennessee weddings, and it’s easy to understand why. Not only are they a fun, customized part of the evening, but they also bring out an adventurous side in guests. Often, the signature cocktails you’ll serve at your event will become a favorite request of your guests for years to come!
Choosing what signature cocktail you’ll serve for your event can get a little tricky, though, if you don’t know where to start. That’s why I reached out to Ahmed, owner and lead chef at premier Chattanooga wedding catering company AlShabibi Catering. He graciously gave me his first suggestion for a yummy signature cocktail that guests will adore throughout the evening!
Introducing Signature Wedding Cocktail | The “You”-tini!
Best of all? You can make this ahead of time and store in a glass decanter to serve guests at your engagement party, shower, wedding…or at another lovely event down the road!
If you’re not into alcohol, this drink can also be created without it!
Signature Wedding Mocktail | The “You”-tini
This crowd-pleasing mocktail is sure to quench your thirst and is friendly for all ages during warm wedding season months. The bride’s first name is used within the drink title (i.e. Sarah-tini). Enjoy!
Per serving, mix the following:
3 tbs gourmet black raspberry syrup
6 oz Lemonade (real lemonade – not from concentrate)
Garnish with lemons or blackberries
Voila! A signature cocktail (or mocktail) that’s sure to please guests. Fix it fresh or ahead of time to make friends and family swoon – but be prepared to share the recipe! They’re sure to request it. 🙂
