We're getting hitched in August (semi-outdoors by the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland) and are trying to narrow down options for a "signature cocktail" that would be pre-mixed in pitchers and featured at the bar. The venue/caterer has expressed that we can have two, and as we're both whiskey drinkers we've decided the first will be something akin to a Lynchberg Lemonade.
We've hit a block for the second though. We'd like something crowd-pleasing that would be sufficiently distinct from the other drink. Also, since I chose the lemonade, my fiance feels that it should be the "bride's" drink and the second drink should be the "groom's," so we're looking for something not-too-girly.
Of note, we are having an open bar either way, so it's not as though our guests will be limited to only these cocktails- it's just something fun and personal.
Thanks for your ideas!
