30 Delicious Signature Drink Ideas for Your Wedding
1. Blackberry Lavender Champagne Cocktail
This stunning Champagne cocktail is super simple and wildly delicious.
It’s a gorgeously bubbly beverage that will get your friends on the dancefloor.
The blackberry and lavender syrup is heavenly. And all you need is a little on your glass.
Top with Champagne and garnish with a fresh lavender flower if they’re available.
It’s so elegant and easy but looks beyond divine.
2. Classic Aperol Spritz
How could I not include the infamous Aperol spritz?
It’s the perfect drink for a summer wedding because, well, it’s THE drink of the summer – at least, it is in Europe.
Bubbly, bright, and not too sweet, all you’ll need is Aperol, prosecco, club soda, and fresh orange slices.
I can’t imagine anyone hasn’t tried this yet. But if you haven’t, it tastes like bitter orange with a subtle hint of vanilla.
Prosecco sweetens the drink, and the club soda dilutes it just a touch.
3. Mojito Pitcher
This pitcher cocktail is ideal for serving a crowd – especially after a summer ceremony.
You’ll simmer sugar with mint and water until the sugar is dissolved to make a quick mint mojito simple syrup.
Then add rum and lime juice.
That can sit in the fridge until you’re ready to serve drinks. Then, top the glasses with a bit of ice and club soda.
It’s clean, light, and wonderfully refreshing.
4. Pink Lemonade Mimosa
Like any mimosa, this beautiful pink drink is super simple yet oh-so-tasty.
I think these would work well for a brunch-time wedding. But then, is there a wrong time to drink a mimosa?
I don’t think so!
Just add pink lemonade to a glass (about 1/3 of the way) and top it up with Champagne.
It’s that easy!
This drink is bright, bubbly, and super cute! Add a lemon slice and fresh berries for garnish.
5. Large Batch Whiskey Sours
The whiskey sour is a classic cocktail loved by so many. And this version is just what you need to serve a thirsty crowd.
Featuring simple syrup, lemon juice, orange juice, Cointreau, and whiskey, all that’s missing is an orange slice.
Unlike some of the more vibrant drinks on this list, this darker drink works well any time of the year because you don’t need seasonal fruits to make it.
Your guests will love them, and your bartender will thank you for the easy drink recipe!
6. St. Germain Cocktail
This St. Germain cocktail is light and effervescent. It’s a simple cocktail with a lovely flavor your guests will go nuts for.
You’ll mix St. Germain (elderflower liqueur) with your favorite gin and some lemon juice.
Then, top it off with some bubbly to make a classy and poised drink that’s fun and delicious.
7. Moscow Mule
I should preface this with a warning: once you see how Insta-worthy these copper mugs are, you’ll want to buy them in bulk.
Because while you can serve a Moscow mule in a glass, these mugs make the drink unique. And they don’t come cheap!
That said, how amazing would they be as wedding favors?
Okay, onto the drink! And what a drink it is!
A Moscow mule starts with a spicy ginger beer. Then, add some good-quality vodka and plenty of lime juice.
I happen to enjoy these with a hint of sweetness and spice. So if you can, make a lime and jalapeño simple syrup to add to the mix.
And really, these drinks are so delicious, nobody will care what glass or mug they come in.
8. Raspberry Limoncello Prosecco
This prosecco cocktail is so beautiful that it was probably made for weddings.
You’ll muddle fresh raspberries for this to get the best possible flavor. That means this is ideal for summer weddings.
And if you’ve never tried Limoncello, you’re in for a treat. It’s bright, zesty, and surprisingly boozy!
Your guests will fall in love at first sight with this drink.
9. Wedding Cake Cocktail
Anyone who’s ever been to a wedding will know that cake time is the best time.
But why not keep the happiness going with these yummy wedding cake cocktails?
This cocktail is a blended drink with beautiful tropical flavors and plenty of botanical gin.
The flavors of amaretto, orange, and pineapple are absolutely delightful. They’re enhanced with a touch of cream that’ll leave your guests raving.
10. Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade
This is another cocktail that is absolutely perfect for a summer wedding. The color is gorgeous, and the flavor is heavenly.
Blackberry syrup is fruity and flavorful. Meanwhile, the rosemary gives the drink a touch of earthiness, and the lemon is perfectly sour.
Whiskey is the best liquor for this drink because the flavors just work so well together.
That said, if you want a bit more sweetness, bourbon is your best bet.
11. Strawberry Moscow Mule
Can you guess how much I love this drink? Not only is it bright, spicy, and delish, but it’s also wonderfully fruity, thanks to the added berries.
The stunning copper cups help to keep these cold. So your guests can keep sipping no matter what the weather is like.
Hot tip: strawberry and lime are a dream pairing. But you could use peaches, raspberries, or even blueberries in this recipe.
12. Sweet Tea and Bourbon
This cocktail is straightforward to make and super tasty to boot.
It’s also wonderfully nostalgic and the kind of signature wedding cocktail even your grandma will love.
And in case you’re wondering: sweet tea and bourbon is the boozy pairing you never knew you needed!
Garnish with mint leaves and a lemon slice for a fresh and fragrant finish.
13. Spicy Grapefruit Ginger Fizz Mocktail
If you’re looking for something for your non-boozy guests, this drink is just the ticket!
It’s spicy, fizzy, and citrusy with muddled jalapeños for even more of a kick! Plus, the grapefruit, ginger beer, and mint are fantastic together.
If you want alcohol, the recipe suggests adding vodka or bourbon. Either way, it’ll be a hit.
14. We Rum This Punch
This rum punch is fantastic!
It’s sweet with a little bit of cinnamon that pairs beautifully with grapefruit rum.
Fresh lime and orange juices offer a citrusy finish, and Tiki bitters bring it all together into one superbly sippable drink. Yum!
15. Peach Blueberry Moscow Mule
I know, I know – but I just had to include this fun and vibrant variation on the classic Moscow mule.
These flavors are so reminiscent of summer and will make any warm weather wedding shine.
Sweet peaches and tangy blueberries offer a wonderful southern twist that everyone will go nuts for.
The sweet peach vodka mixed with the spicy ginger beer is delicious on its own. But that blueberry juice takes it from delicious to addictive!
16. Rosemary Greyhound Cocktail
Rosemary and grapefruit are a fantastic combination of herby, tart, and fruity.
This is ideal for those who don’t like overly sweet drinks. Instead, it’s almost savory, with the rosemary simple syrup providing nice herbaceousness.
That said, the grapefruit is tart, citrusy, and lightens this up just right.
17. Beer Margaritas
These unique margaritas will definitely get the party started. They contain beer and hard liquor, so they’re delicious but dangerous.
This cocktail has all the flavors of a classic margarita with the addition of beer. It’s really smooth and goes down a little too easily.
And while I think they’d be ideal for a casual backyard wedding, let’s be honest – who doesn’t love beers and margs?!
18. Prosecco Mimosa
This is a classic mimosa recipe made with Italian prosecco. It’s bubbly, crisp, and insanely refreshing.
And just like a traditional mimosa, you only need two ingredients: orange juice and prosecco.
If you’re having a brunch wedding, this drink is a great choice!
19. Gin Fizz Cocktail
If gin is your liquor of choice, this signature cocktail needs to be at your wedding.
It’s tart and sweet with a beautiful foam on top.
This gin fizz has a bright lemon flavor and is lightly sweetened with simple syrup. Then, the soda water makes it delightfully bubbly.
And the foam? It’s actually egg whites!
20. Grapefruit-Ginger Bourbon Sour
Grapefruit cocktails are some of the most flavorful and refreshing drinks around. And this one is beautiful in color and has fantastic flavor.
Grapefruit and lime are strikingly sour and bright when mixed together. So you’ll add ginger simple syrup for a spicy-sweet balance.
Finish it with smooth and sweet bourbon, and you’re good to go.
Make this drink your signature cocktail, and your guests will be as head over heels as you are.

This drink is perfect for a summer or destination wedding.
Made with rum, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut, this frosty piña colada will give everyone major vacation vibes!
Garnish with fresh pineapple and maraschino cherry for something sweet and flavorful.
23. Caramel Apple Sangria
I know I have a lot on here for summer weddings. So here’s one for the fall crowd!
In fact, this cocktail is one of my favorites for autumn in general.
Sangria is terrific for crowds, and this one is loaded with apple cider, caramel syrup, wine, and vodka.
It tastes like a caramel apple in a glass and would be extra fantastic for a Halloween wedding!
24. Spicy Jalapeño Margarita
I say this a lot, but this is one of my all-time faves! As a margarita lover who likes spicy food, it’s a no-brainer for me.
This award-winning spicy margarita is delicious, and it looks stunning to boot!
There’s something about a spicy margarita that feels a bit more sophisticated than a classic marg.

On the hunt for a classy twist on a mint mojito. How about this blueberry dream?
