One of my favorite tips for saving money on your wedding is to nix the open bar and opt to serve wine, beer, and a signature cocktail (or two) instead! Signature cocktails can add an extra dose of personalization to your day, because both you and your fiancé can choose your favorite drinks to be served and shared with all of your guests. Plus, who doesn't like trying a new, tasty cocktail?

As I mentioned previously, I've been having a little fun at home mixing up some tasty and simple drink recipes, and I decided it would be fun to share some of them with all of you! I'm sharing these yummy cocktail recipes here on the blog as a series I've dubbed “Savvy Signature Sips.” So fun, right?

The folks at Four Roses sent me over a lovely bottle of Bourbon. I have to admit, I don't drink Bourbon often, but my husband loves it! I thought it would be nice to incorporate the bourbon into a cozy fall cocktail… and what better to soothe your soul and warm your heart than Apple Cider! This recipe smells and tastes amazing, and would be a perfect sip to offer to your wedding guest on a chilly fall evening!


  • 3 cups apple cider
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 oz Four Roses Bourbon
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce
  • Garnish with apple wedges and cinnamon sticks

Place ingredients in a pot over the stove and let it get nice and warm. Serve hot in a mug!

Makes 2-4 servings, depending on how heavy your pour is! 🙂

I think this drink would make a great signature cocktail for your big day, don't you?

Cheers, y'all!
