mint julep signature wedding cocktail

Food Stylist: Karen Evans

A signature cocktail is a delicious way to personalize your wedding menu, especially if you're throwing a destination wedding. We asked wedding planners across the country, from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, what kinds of fruity concoctions are most popular in their neck of the woods. "If your crowd is into margaritas, try a version with Texas grapefruit instead of lime," suggests Sarah Kane of Dallas-based Culinary Art Catering. Meanwhile, in Philadelphia it's all about the Greenhouse Tonic served in a mason jar and garnished with a cucumber slice. How's that for colorful and delicious?

For this and eight more mouth-watering signature cocktail ideas and recipes, check out the full slideshow.
