Signature cocktails tend to get overlooked in the wedding planning process. So, we’re here to remind you why they should be near the top of your list when deciding on your reception menu. You know we’re all about showing your personality throughout your wedding day, and having signature cocktails is a fun (and delicious) way to do that. If you’re tying the know in the autumn and you’re not sure what signature cocktails to serve, you’re in luck. We’re rounding up some of our favorites with flavor profiles that scream fall–think pumpkin, cranberry, and apple cider!

5 Fall Signature Cocktails

Ginger Apple Moscow Mule

Almost everyone loves a good Moscow mule, and this ginger apple variation takes it to the next level of coziness. Because this is such a versatile cocktail, it could truly work at any kind of fall wedding.

Smoky Harvest Apple Cider Margarita

Hosting your own fiesta? Or maybe you’re just a big fan of mezcal or tequila. Either way, this smoky harvest apple cider margarita is an autumnal spin on a classic cocktail. Use mezcal for a smokier flavor or opt for tequila to make it a little sweeter.

Fall Aperol Spritz

Just because you’re having a destination wedding in Italy doesn’t mean that you can’t have fall-inspired signature cocktails. An Aperol Spritz is a classic, but the addition of the Chambord and ginger beer in this recipe gives it a sweet and (subtle) spicy flavor that you don’t traditionally find.

Classic Hot Toddy

If you’re getting married later in the season or exchanging vows outdoors and you expect it to be a bit chilly, a hot toddy is the perfect way to warm you and your guests up. It’s an extremely easy cocktail to make, and it’s lighter, making it easier to sip on.

Pumpkin Spice White Russian

Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without at least one pumpkin spice cocktail. Because this white Russian is a little sweeter, it would make a perfect after-dinner dessert cocktail that you surprise your guests with.
