Wine Pours. Beer Trucks. Lemonade Stands. Whisky Tasting Stations. Apple Cider Stands. Adult Milkshakes.

These are just a few of some of the amazing drink options to put your wedding over the top!

Here are 5 amazing signature cocktails, from our archives, for the mixologist in everyone.

 

1.DOS AGAVES

I am a HUGE fan of egg white cocktails, but if you plan on serving them at your wedding you should also plan to tip your bartender VERY well. Egg white cocktails can be a pain to make an definitely require several well trained IMG_9863 (1).jpgmixologists.

.75 oz lime juice .75 cinnamon-agave syrup

2. Mint and Honey Bourbon
