The Wedding ToastInstead of having an open bar, which can get very expensive, many couples are deciding to offer signature cocktails at their wedding reception instead.

Having one or two signature cocktails is unique way to add a sophisticated touch to your reception, while also saving you a bit of cash.

You can choose your favorite cocktail as a signature drink or concoct something special just for your wedding.

Anthony Alba, the property Mixologist at the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, has designed a series of terrific cocktails that are perfect for weddings. He shares a couple of these recipes with us.

More toasts and speeches than the Oscars, but they’re all in your honor.

  • 1 part Basil Hayden’s Bourbon
  • 1 part ginger ale
  • 1 part simple syrup
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 4 skinned cucumber slices
  • 5 sage leaves (without stems)
  • Dash of bitters

Muddle fruit, add ingredients (except ginger ale) shake with ice strain into a martini glass and top with ginger ale. Garnish with a floating sage leaf.

    these are cool modern sounding drinks. The wedding toast sounds particularly good – cucumbers and sage – pretty too
