A Signature Cocktail (or Mocktail) is a great way to personalize your wedding, mitzvah or special soiree. You Signature Drink can be inspired by the theme or color scheme of your event or it can be inspired by your guest(s) of honor (their favorite places to travel, hobbies, favorite movie - the possibilities are endless). Your event can feature one Signature Cocktail or several. There are no rules for creating a Signature Cocktail for your event, so have fun with this fabulous finishing touch! Every Saturday, FAVORITE THINGS will inspire with a FAVORITE Signature Cocktail.

A signature cocktail inspired by Autumn...
1 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce gold tequila
5-6 ounces sweet apple cider
orange segments and apple slices
cinnamon + cane sugar + coarse sugar for glass rimming
cinnamon sticks for garnish
Add a few spoonfuls of cane sugar, coarse sugar and cinnamon to a plate. Run an orange segment around the edge of the glass, then press into the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat the rim. Add a few orange slices in the bottom of the glass, fill with ice, then add the Grand Marnier, tequila and apple cider and stir to mix. Garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks. Please note that this recipe is for one but it can be easily multiplied.
