If you do decide to have signature cocktails at your wedding, the best person to help you is your venue’s bartenders.

If you’re still looking for more inspiration for your cocktail menu then why not try a few of Longmeadow’s favorites!
Sparkling Summer Peach
Even if you’re not usually a fan of vodka, the mellow fruit flavors in this drink might change your mind. Pineapple and lime juices come together for a bright, sweet, and slightly tangy addition to the peach-infused recipe from Beautiful Booze.
- 2 oz. Seagram’s Peach Vodka
- 1 oz. pineapple juice
- 1 oz. lime juice
- Sparkling wine, to top
Directions: Add all ingredients except sparkling wine into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake hard to chill and combine ingredients. Strain into your glass. Top with sparkling wine. Garnish and enjoy.
Blueberry Ginger Mule
A Moscow Mule practically screams ‘summer’—a bright cocktail inside a frosty copper mug, keeping everything cool in the summer heat. This recipe from Deep Eddy Vodka uses lemon-infused vodka and a homemade blueberry cordial. Yum!
- 1 oz. Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka
- 1 oz. Deep Eddy Straight Vodka
- 2 oz. blueberry cordial*
- Goya Ginger Beer
Combine all ingredients in a copper mug filled with crushed ice.
Another simple drink, this will make a lot of folks happy. Champagne (or a less-expensive bubbly like Prosecco), fresh citrus, and simple syrup are all you need. To make, you’ll need the below ingredients:
- 0.5 oz. simple syrup
- Orange twist
- Lemon twist
- Peychaud’s Bitters
- Mint and berries for garnish
Combine simple syrup, oils from citrus twists, and citrus twists into a pint glass. Add crushed ice up to about 1/2 inch below the rim of the glass. Fill glass with Champagne and stir with a swizzle stick. Add a thin layer of crushed ice and add several dashes of Peychaud’s to create a layered color effect. Top with more crushed ice and garnish with mint sprig and fresh berries.
