Signature Wedding Drink Ideas By St-Germain

We are not huge drinkers, but we do like to have a pool-side cocktail every now and then and are known to indulge in a signature cocktail while attending a celebration. Typically well thought out drinks that match the couple’s personalities, wedding colors and are always great conversation starters among guests. Since signature wedding drinks are personally designed and so special, it’s more than acceptable to only serve one cocktail at your wedding, along with beer and wine and non-alcoholic beverages. A great way to minimize your liquor budget and add more personalization to your wedding.

St-Germain, the first liqueur in the world created in the artisanal French manner from freshly handpicked elderflower blossoms offers up some signature wedding drink ideas. Not only refreshingly tasty, but also quite lovely to look at. The St-Germain Cocktail can be customized to blend in while simultaneously standing out.

Bonus! St-Germain mixologists are now available to create refined cocktail concepts for the discerning bride. For their new complimentary bespoke cocktail service email wedding@stgermain.fr.

St-Germain has some lovely ideas on how to personalized your signature wedding drinks.

Match your cocktail to your wedding colors with pops of yellow lemon twists, fresh green mint sprigs, or pink berry fruits. Coordinate your cocktail with your wedding bouquet by choosing a floral garnish. Bright orange marigolds, purple pansies, lush peonies, and classic roses can enliven your cocktail with textures of petals while highlighting the very heart of St-Germain – the elderflower blossom, with flavor notes of pear, citrus, and tropical fruits.

Sangria Flora

Ingredients:
1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc or Dry White Wine
1 cup St-Germain
2 Fresh Peaches*
5-6 Fresh Strawberries*
6 Fresh Raspberries*
1 bunch Fresh Grapes*

Method: Stir ingredients in a pitcher or carafe. Soak for approximately 15 minutes (or longer if desired). Serve in an ice-filled glass, then telephone your physician and regale him with stories of your exemplary fruit consumption. Serve with St-Germain spoon-straws to enjoy the fruit while drinking. *Merely suggestions – be creative with your favorite fruits.

La Rosette

Ingredients:
½ part St-Germain
top with Brut Rosé

Method: Pour ingredients into a chilled fluted glass and stir lightly. Float half a strawberry as a garnish. Drink a toast to the elegance of simplicity and the divinity of les fraises fraîches. Variation: Experiment with other garnishes. A lemon twist, or raspberries perhaps. Just don’t tell the strawberries – you know how jealous they can get.

White Cosmopolitan

Ingredients:
2 oz. Grey Goose vodka
1 oz. St. Germain liquor
1/2 oz. lime juice
1 oz. white cranberry juice
Orchid or any other edible flower & Ice

Method: Shake vodka, St. Germain liquor, lime juice and white cranberry juice together with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish: There are twice as many orchid species than bird species. Be sure to choose a dainty variety to top your cocktail.

The St-Germain Cocktail

Ingredients:
2 parts Brut Champagne or Dry Sparkling Wine
1½ parts St-Germain
2 parts Club Soda

Method: Stir ingredients in a tall ice-filled Collins glass, mixing completely. Think of Paris circa 1947. Garnish: With a lemon or lime.

  4. [...] Another great way to save money is having a taco bar, as opposed to a traditional fancy wedding menu. To jazz up the taco bar you could add gourmet items like duck confit and pickled red cabbage like Andrew and Hannah did. Having a limited bar will also reduce your budget. You could simply offer one type of wine or beer or a signature wedding cocktail. [...]
