It’s no secret that here at Arizona Weddings we love a good cocktail, especially a creative signature cocktail. Check out these four perfect his and hers (Mr. & Mrs.) signature cocktail ideas. We’ve also included the recipes so you can make them yourself and give them a try.

 

SOFT KISS & GENTLE HUG

Soft Kiss
A take on the tried and true whiskey sour, we’ve added some orange juice to liven it up a little. The strawberry garnish adds a little punch of color. Serve it in a pretty cocktail glass, to give it that feminine touch.

Gentle Hug
Peaches and mint makes this cocktail easy to drink. The men and women will both want  a few of these delicious libations.

 

 

HANDSOME HOMBRE & SWEET SEñORA

Handsome Hombre
This perfect tequila cocktail was created by Camarena tequila and is simply fabulous. There are lot of ingredients, but it is so worth it.

Sweet Señora
This is a twist on the standard margarita recipe. The blood orange adds just enough bitter-sweet to make these go down easy. You can have fun with the garnish. The orange is a must, but you could add berries or limes too.

DAPPER GENT & LADY IN RED

Dapper Gent
This is basically a Negroni cocktail, which is a traditional Italian aperitif ( a before dinner drink.) Campari is the key to this drink. It can be an acquired taste, but I think you will find most your guests will enjoy it.

Lady in Red
Raspberries and soda water make this vodka drink amazingly refreshing. It does have a bit of prep time if you want make your own raspberry juice. It’s a little time consuming to make, but your mixologist may be able to find a few short cuts.

 

 

KIND SIR & LOVELY LADY

Kind Sir
This is just a plain ole vodka sour, so how can you go wrong. Sweet and sour and super refreshing. Your guest will be lining up for just one more.

Lovely Lady
Ginger ale adds the perfect fizz to this fantastic vodka cocktail. It too, is really refreshing and perfect for the Arizona heat.
