Winter weddings are a cozy affair. So why not start the evening off with a cocktail that is chic and comforting at the same time? Here are a few ideas for those of you considering a signature cocktail…

Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail: A simple and colorful twist on the champagne cocktail – just add a bit of pomegranate or cranberry juice to your champagne and you have a gorgeous red signature cocktail! (bhg)

Ginger Champagne Punch: Vodka and champagne are a dangerous mix, but for this pretty blue concoction, mix champagne with vodka, crystalized ginger and a dash of sugar. (bhg)

Apple Spiced Rum: For something a little more warm and fuzzy (it is winter after all), how about a bit of apple spiced rum? Mix spiced rum, apple cider and a bit of rosemary for garnish and voila! You have your ultimate winter wedding cocktail. (runningwithtweezers)

Kahlua, Eggnog and Jameson: It needs no further description.  How divine does it sound? (creative culinary)

Peppermint White Russian: It’s 2 part peppermint schnapps, 2 part Bailey’s (the coffee flavored kind), 1 part half and half. Garnish the rim with crushed candy canes, if you’re feeling festive. (a beautiful mess)

Mulled Cranberry Cider: Warm your guests up with this burgundy winter concoction. Cranberry juice, orange juice, some ginger, sugar and, oh yes, port. Lots of port.  (Martha Stewart Weddings)

The French Kiss.  As beautiful as it is delicious. Chambord, Vodka, dark creme de cacao, half and half, and a little kiss to top it off!  PerfectionbyDesign
