Signature cocktails are all the rage and probably will be for some time. There are literally hundreds of variations and we’ve all heard the hilarious, smuttily-named ones among them. As to whether those amusing options are appropriate for your wedding – only you can answer that.
But in addition to all the standard cocktails, we have also heard of cocktails named after specific guests and wedding VIP’s. Whether the names are determined by selecting randomly from a hat or maybe even the “signature” drink of certain individuals (for instance we used to know someone who did his best to be associated with drinking two bottles of Stella every night, though he never really managed to achieve that aim!) the possibilities for allocating names to certain drinks are considerable.
Weddings are an opportunity for personalisation and some brides take this to greater lengths than others. Some brides like every aspect which has the potential to be customisable to be so, whereas others aren’t particulalry concerned about it. Some who contact us about hiring our crepe van for weddings are keen to employ a little further customisation, for instance nominating “bride’s choice” and “groom’s choice” for crêpe flavours and asking that we modify our menu to display this information. None have so far gone for the full-on option of naming every individual flavour on our menu, but it is sure to happen sooner of later.
Some crepe flavours lend themselves to the idea better than others, but much will depend on the names of those attending the wedding. So “Mary’s Maple Syrup” will work well if there is a Mary present. Nigel can have nutella and if anyone called Cadbury or Bailey is present, there are easy options to allocate to them on our menu.
“Mother of the Bride Milky Bar”, “Groom’s Grand Marnier” and “Bride’s Buttons and Banana” are all pretty obvious and as those characters are present at most weddings, those names are pretty much good-to-go at any wedding where our crepe stand is present.
But best of all with these options is that there are no smutty connotations – which is exactly as it should be at a wedding.
Unless you prefer it otherwise of course.
