3 Unique Summer Signature Cocktail Ideas

Updated: Jun 17, 2021

Three unique and delicious signature cocktail ideas to use at your summer wedding.

Summer Signature Cocktails

For us, one of the hardest parts of wedding planning was coming up with signature cocktails for our weddings. Every time we looked up recipe ideas, they were redundant, unoriginal, and already done before. When we decided to start the Sota Brides blog, we knew we wanted to have a Signature Cocktail Series that featured out of the box signature cocktail ideas. We are starting our summer series with three unique, delicious, ideas that you could feature at your wedding!

Ali and Caitlin demonstrating how to make all of these fun cocktails (and a hilarious blooper reel!).
