Specialty Cocktails

Whether you choose to have just beer, wine, champagne and a specialty cocktail or even if you are having a full bar you may choose to also include a specialty cocktail. Specialty cocktails are generally served after the ceremony.  If you choose to do a pre-ceremony drink we suggest something light like a Shandy or Champagne Cocktail.

On the following page are some of the signature cocktails we have served in previous years!   Tamie and lead bartender Dominique are quite the mixologists, we have fun creating a tasty drink for your guests that will look good in pictures and can also be made by the bucket for quick service to a thirsty crowd!
