If you are in the process of planning your Connecticut wedding reception, a great idea that will add a little extra zest to your big day is to provide additional signature cocktails to your bar. A signature cocktail will not only provide a tasty alternative for your guests who are looking to enjoy a beverage and let loose on the dance floor, it also has the capability of adding some color and character to your wedding reception. You can choose a signature cocktail that matches the color scheme of your wedding, or that one that is attune with the surroundings of your wedding venue. For instance, if you are hosting your wedding reception at the Lighthouse Point in New Haven, you can choose to serve the tequila-based Ocean Mist cocktail, which should blend nicely with the atmosphere that the beach and long island sound provides.

Fitzgerald’s Fine Catering of Connecticut has hosted countless weddings throughout Fairifeld, Hartford, New London, and New Haven Counties and beyond. To assist you on planning your wedding reception, have compiled a list of some of our most requested signature cocktails as well a couple of our personal favorites below:

Lemon Grass Ginger Martini: This is a very elegant cocktail that will allow your guests a refreshing solution to the seemingly relentless Connecticut summer heat. It is formulated with a mix of vodka, ginger liqueur, tarragon, lemongrass syrup and fresh citrus. It is great tasting and is sure to be a popular item at your reception.

Cucumber Mint Refresher: Another drink that is a powerful tool in combating the hot days of summer is this thirst-quenching, fresh-tasting cocktail! It is made up of vodka, seltzer, cucumber slices and mint sprigs over ice.

Basil-Blueberry Tom Collins: It is an remarkably multifaceted cocktail, which includes basil and blueberries. A great addition is to include a buffet station with a variety of add-ins. It is an excellent classic drink that can be customized with just a few small changes.

Strawberry Gold Rush:It can appeal to guests who enjoy a stiff whiskey cocktail, as well as to those who prefer something fruity and light. It’s an natural crowd pleaser.

Your wedding reception should represent your personal style and personality. A great way to showcase this is through providing a signature drink. Your signature drink has the capability to be a part of the narrative of your relationship and establish and set the tone for your wedding. Beyond adding a special alternative to your bar, another advantage to servicing a signature drink is that in most cases it will help to manage the long lines that can accumulate at the bar, since most signature cocktails are pre-mixed and are ready to serve up request.
