With so many couples recently engaged, we teamed up with DIY blog and wedding shop, Beau-Coup, and beverage catering service based out of San Francisco, Ceremony, to bring you these three delicious signature cocktails perfect for your engagement party (or bridal shower!). Ceremony specializes in hand-crafted and organic artisan cocktails for weddings, corporate parties, private events, and more, and what they’ve created for us today is just a little taste of their talent! Scroll down for the three beverage recipes that are showcased in Beau-Coup’s customizable Cheers engagement party collection, which is currently available for sale in their shop.

Rohini Moradi of Ceremony helped to set up this beautiful cocktail bar, complete with her gold bar tools. The beverage catering service can provide anything you may need for your bar, whether it be bar tools, booze, the bartenders themselves, or all of the above. They also provided their own organic simple syrup, Roya Spirit, which made the cocktails all the more delicious. Beau-Coup asked Rohini how she chooses the ingredients for a signature cocktail, and she said there are a number of different things to consider. What’s the couple’s wedding style? Is there a color theme? What flavors and spirits do they typically like? Once she has those answers, she’s able to whip up very different, very delicious signature cocktails.

3. Ro’s Merry Baby

Rohini’s twist on the classic gimlet is the perfect party cocktail. Her sweet simple syrup paired with a dash of lime and a sprig of rosemary perfectly complement juniper-rich gin. It’s a little sweet, a little tart, and oh so refreshing!

– 1 sprig of rosemary 
– 1/2 oz. Roya Spirit Simple Syrup 
– 1/2 oz. lime juice 
Muddle a pinch of rosemary in shaker top and add the rest of ingredients. Add ice to shaker and shake for 15 seconds. Strain into cocktail glass and garnish with lime and rosemary.
