Every bit of your wedding should have a personal touch— that’s what makes the whole event special and memorable! Why not design your own winter cocktails to express your personality as a couple? Glean some ideas for custom cocktails that have holiday flair and might showcase the style and preferences of you and your significant other.
Fruity Winter Cocktails for Your Wedding
Do the two of you like your drinks fruity and fresh? Try these fun cocktails with a holiday twist.
This cocktail features festive red color and a rich, sweet fruity taste. The champagne adds celebratory bubbles. Serve it in tall skinny glasses and add candy-caned striped reusable straws or a sprig of green as garnish.
Do the two of you love a good sangria? Ask your caterer to create a mulled white wine cocktail with spices, herbs, and fruit, punched up with brandy. The flavor palette is entirely festive, and your guests will find it delectable and perfectly suited to the occasion. Thin slices of stewed pear, immersed in each glass, are an effective decoration for this drink.
Smirnoff Peppermint Twist, along with shots of pomegranate and lemon, blend with club soda to create a deliciously refreshing holiday wedding cocktail. Top it off with powdered sugar and mint leaves.
Sweet Winter Cocktails for Your Wedding
To celebrate your romance, why not choose drinks with a little extra sweetness? Check out these sugary faves for winter weddings.
This unexpected combo works well for couples who love their tequila! The richness and smoothness of the chocolate meshes beautifully with the fruity tang of the tequila. Serve it in glass mugs and top with marshmallows— and don’t forget to distinguish the non-alcoholic version for any children and teens at your wedding.
Perfection in a glass, this cocktail marries your favorite White Russian to the sweetness of caramel. A hint of salt keeps guests craving more. Serve in mason jars with chocolate shavings or spears and a sprig of rosemary.
Tea is often a drink of choice during the chilly winter months. Incorporate a hint of famous Earl Grey tea into an infused champagne cocktail. Vodka contributes the energy this drink needs to create the right blend of cosy and daring.
What’s a winter holiday without eggnog? Treat your guests to a bourbon-laced version of this popular holiday drink, complete with egg, heavy cream, sugar, and a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg.
Get the party started with this warm rum cocktail, flavored with vanilla bean butter, dark brown sugar, salt, mace, and cinnamon. It’s a lush, warm-you-down-to-your-toes kind of drink, perfect for getting everyone in the dancing mood.
His and Hers Winter Cocktails for Your Wedding
If you don’t share the same taste in drinks, consider offering his and hers cocktails— or his and his, or hers and hers! One wedding showcased a bourbon and dark cherry drink from the groom, beside a floral-infused martini from the bride. Think strawberry-jalapeno margaritas alongside Kentucky mules, or Americano cocktails with red vermouth, Campari, and soda water next to daiquiri cocktails featuring traditional rum and lime flavors.
Endless cocktail combinations are available, and you can usually find a way to give your time-honored faves a holiday twist for your winter wedding. Ask the experts at Nanina’s in the Park for advice on creating your own personalized, signature cocktails to serve at your winter wedding.
