Festive Cocktails For Your Winter Wedding

, , , , ,

If you are having a winter wedding, you might want to consider having a signature cocktail that reflects the season. If not for your wedding, then maybe for your rehearsal dinner, shower or for holiday entertaining in your home.

Adding a seasonal embellishment to the cocktail immediately gives it a festive air. There are three embellishments that automatically make one think of winter:

Candy Canes
Pomegrantes
Cranberries
.

Embellishing a simple cocktail with a candy cane, pomegranates or cranberries immediately makes it say “winter”!

Candy Canes can be added to your cocktail by dipping the glass rim in to crushed candy canes. Dip the rim of the glass in to marshmallow topping or something similar first to help hold the crushed candy cane in place. And you can add a whole candy cane to the glass, as well.

Pomegranates are another element that can be added to “winterize” your cocktails! They are easy to add as an embellishment as shown below.

Cranberry juice or cranberry cocktail can easily be the base for your signature drink. Cranberries look especially nice when paired with fresh rosemary as an embellishment (as shown below). Just putting cranberries on a decorative toothpick takes your cocktail up a notch!
