You’ve already put so much thought into the details of your wedding — from your dress to your flowers to your vows — so don’t let the bar become an afterthought. Keep the beer and wine flowing, but when it comes to making a real “just married” statement, it’s all about the signature cocktail. With clever names and seasonal flavors, these cocktail recipes might just be the personal touch you and your groom have been looking for.
“If you liked it, then you shoulda put a tag on it,” said all smart DIY brides everywhere. Once you’ve made your signature drink, bottle it up and add festive “Just Married” tags that describe the drink of choice. (via Wedding Chicks)

His and Hers Drinks
Just because you got hitched doesn’t mean you suddenly adopted his passion for a good Scotch on the rocks. Make the bar just as much about you and your main man as the rest of the wedding with two go-to drinks, his and hers style! (via Wedding Chicks)

Pineapple Rum Tea Punch
Southern belles, this one’s for you! Go punch bowl style at your wedding with this tropical concoction, served in pretty glass tea cups, of course. (via The Daily South)

Throwing an elegant affair? Go all black and white with your drinks by serving martinis straight up with black olive stirrers. (via Merriment Events)

Feeling fruity? This pretty pink cocktail will have your guests double fisting. It’s loaded with fresh rhubarb, raspberries and vanilla bean. (via Golubka Kitchen)

Give your drinks some flair by adding pom-pom topped stirrers to your glasses. Just think how cute all those sparkly raised glasses will look come toast time. (via Style Me Pretty)

This grapefruit gin martini has all the makings of a fun night — and judging by its name, it should be drank immediately following your first kiss as husband and wife. (via Bakers Royal)
Lavender French 75
Your guests have probably tried a French 75. Light and refreshing, it’s made with gin, lemon and champagne, but they probably haven’t had one infused with lavender. In honor of your “something new,” introduce them to this fantastic drink. (via Love and Lemons)
Pretty in Pink
This is the kind of drink that should be served at an outdoor summer wedding: Refreshing from the fresh lemon juice, bubbly from sparkling wine and booze-infused with gin, it’s a hands-down winner. (via Apartment 34)
If you and your groom love all things old school and retro, you’ll love this nod to the prohibition era. Bottle up “bathtub gin” (just make yours by infusing gin with fruit) in mason jars. Then, throw it in a bathtub for guests to grab from. (via Wedding Chicks)
This drink is almost too pretty to sip! It’s mixed like a caipirinha with cane sugar, muddled strawberries and cachaca, a liquor similar to rum, made from sugar cane. (via Wedding Chicks)
