One way to keep wedding costs down is to serve signature cocktails instead of having an open bar. Signature cocktails are one or two mixed drinks that are exclusively served at your wedding reception. This method limits your guests' options, thus saving you money.

It's a fun, sophisticated and affordable way to provide fabulous drinks at your wedding reception. What drink should you choose?

Anthony Alba, property Mixologist at the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, has created some delicious cocktails that are perfect for your wedding day. Some of Alba's suggestions include the His and Her cocktails. Consider these fabulous drink recipes for your wedding reception.

Alba's Wedding Cocktails


  • 1 part Knob Creek Bourbon
  • 1 part DeKuyper Peach Schnapps
  • 1/2 part simple syrup
  • Juice of 1 whole lime
  • Juice of 1 blood orange
  • 1 part lemon lime soda

Squeeze blood orange and lime juices, add ingredients except lemon lime soda, shake with ice and pour in a 12 oz. bucket, and top with lemon lime soda. Garnish with fresh blueberries.


  • 1 part Vox Raspberry Vodka
  • 1 part DeKuyper Pucker Strawberry Passion Schnapps
  • 2 parts rose nectar
  • Splash pasteurized egg white (or fresh egg whites kept cold)
  • Splash of champagne

Shake with ice and strain in a champagne flute. Top with champagne, garnish with a rose petal and sprinkle with edible gold dust.

Naturally, these are just two orginal ideas to get you thinking. There are dozens of such combinations you can select, depending on your theme, the season etc. Consult with your caterer/bartender for some expert advice
