4 Nautical-Themed Signature Drinks for Your Yacht Wedding

4 Nautical-Themed Signature Drinks for Your Yacht Wedding

A one-of-a-kind experience on a luxury yacht is a memorable and elegant way to celebrate your wedding day with your partner and your guests. How could you possibly go wrong exchanging your vows in front of gorgeous skylines with the soothing sounds of the water as your soundtrack? Especially when you choose a classic yacht like the Motor Yacht Eastern Star, which is renown for its stunning attention to detail and designer cocktails.

Speaking of cocktails, when you head out to the water for your special day, you’ll want to keep the fun and relaxing seafaring vibe going long into the night. With one of these nautical-themed drinks, you and your guests are sure to feel like you’re riding the high of an ocean wave!

1) Salty Dog

If you like margaritas, you’ll love this tart and potent cocktail. Just combine gin or vodka with grapefruit juice and pour over ice. Don’t forget to salt the rim for an extra bite, and garnish with a grapefruit wedge.

2) Foghorn

A Moscow mule homage with a nautical twist, the foghorn is the perfect drink to signal to your guests that the party has started! Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice, pour in your favorite gin with a dash of lime juice, stir, and top with ginger beer or ginger ale for a smooth finish. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.

3) Ocean Breeze

This maritime cocktail boasts the perfect mix of sweet and sour flavors to keep you refreshed for a long night of dancing. Combine raspberry vodka, coconut rum, cranberry juice, and pineapple juice in a glass. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and maraschino cherry on a toothpick. You can find the full recipe here!

4) Blue Ombre

If you’re looking for an Instagram-worthy drink to keep your guests feeling breezy, look no further than the Blue Ombre! The trick to achieving the gorgeous blue color is to layer your ice. Pour blue curacao over two ice cubes. Add two more ice cubes, then the Bacardi. Finish off with lemonade, pineapple juice, and maraschino cherries for garnish.

Now that you’ve got your signature nautical cocktail, you’ll need the perfect place to sip on it.
