Cheers! Wedding Cocktails

In a new monthly series, let's explore one of everyone's favorite parts of weddings:  signature cocktails!

First up, we're sharing the recipe for our own special libation from our 2015 runway show, created for us by the experts at Mint Catering.

Set a fine-mesh sieve over a small bowl; set aside. In a small saucepan, boil

ginger, sugar, and 1/4 cup water until syrupy, about 2 minutes. Pour through

sieve into bowl, discarding solids. (To store syrup, refrigerate in an airtight

container, up to 1 week.)

gently stir.

Mint Catering for Carol Hannah - Signature Wedding Cocktails

Need help coming up with the best booze-y ideas for your own wedding?  Mint says your vendor should ask you the following:

 
"1) Color!  What color/hue is being used for the event - should we match that color or perhaps think of something complimentary?
2) Type of alcohol. Are you/your guests Grey Goose, Patron or Champagne drinkers?
3) Glassware. Do you love the look of a Martini Glass or do you prefer say a mason jar?
 
With the above 3 answers you may then create away!"
