Signature Wedding Cocktails

By June 20, 2012 No Comments

We love to see couples add-in personal touches to their wedding day. Signature Wedding Cocktails is one of the biggest trends we have seen this year.

A couple who recently married in April 2012 at Stafford’s Perry Hotel, decided to work in a cocktail that reflected their professions, a doctor and a nurse. Their drinks were a simple twist on the traditional Manhattan (“The Doctor”) and Lemon Drop Martini (“The Nurse”). We have included the cocktail recipes below. Cheers!

“The Doctor” – Traditional Manhattan

2 oz. Rye Whiskey
3/4 oz. Sweet Vermouth
