It may only be Friday morning where we are, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be dreaming of Cosmopolitans, Margaritas and Martinis.
Whether it’s a glass of wine or a flute of champagne, most wedding cocktail hours consist of easy one-and-done cocktails. For us, we prefer to spice things up a bit. (In case you hadn’t noticed!)
Spiked Hot Chocolate
Adding a twist to a traditional holiday classic not only spices things up but also keeps your wedding guests warm inside and out. Consider this recipe from Celebrating Sweets. Or if you’re looking for a traditionally hot chocolate recipe, take a look at one of these yummy recipes.
Cranberry Bourbon Fizz
As a bourbon lover, this cocktail gives me all kinds of Fall/Winter feels! The star anise and floating cranberry alone give this bourbon-based cocktail some serious flair.
Plum and Thyme Prosecco Smash
Take your champ status to a new level by adding plum and thyme. Not only does this cocktail look pretty, but it tastes AMAZING too!
Salted Caramel Apple Martini
If this martini doesn’t make you feel like you’re walking through an apple orchard than I don’t know what else would… aside from actually walking through one. Composed of four ingredients, it’s no wonder it made our wedding cocktail list.
Cranberry Apple Cider Sangria
Mmmm, now I want some sangria! It’s 5’o clock somewhere right? This sangria recipe kicks things up a notch by adding the flavors of Fall to it. Imagine how happy your wedding guests will be when they are handed a glass of this yumminess during cocktail.
Apple Cranberry Moscow Mule
Let’s be honest, the ginger-apple-cranberry flavor combo is quintessential Fall. Which is why this twist on a traditional Moscow Mule is perfect for a Fall or Winter wedding.
Attention all bourbon AND Harry Potter fans: this is your wedding cocktail, hands down! Better yet, if you hosting a Harry Potter themed wedding you HAVE to serve this at your cocktail hour. This warm beverage will warm your insides up on a cold wedding day.
