The Ultimate Cocktail-Hour Guide
Your cocktail hour should be like a souped-up version of your favorite happy hour. Think about it: It's early in the evening, and you have all of your friends together with your favorite drinks, apps, great music and comfortable seating. Here's what you need to pull it off (plus a few extra-genius ways to wow your guests).
Whether it's a classic or totally new, you can match your signature cocktail to your color scheme and let it reflect your personality as a couple. Maybe your fave drink is whiskey lemonade, while his is gin and tonic. Feature both cocktails on the menu and give them creative names to reflect your personalities.
Top-Shelf Idea: Why stop at just one? You could also name drinks after your bridal party, or serve favorite cocktails from both sets of parents.
