His & Hers Sake Wedding Cocktail Recipes

When it comes to drinks for your wedding, his and hers combinations are a big hit. Instead of having a full bar, offering two selections – his favorite and her choice – is a fabulous way to have beverages in a creative way. I didn’t know a lot about sake (honestly I had never tried it!), so I partnered with SakeOne to come up with creative his/hers wedding cocktail recipes. I hope you enjoy and test out these grown-up favorites!

Iced Spiced Cider

I remember loving cider as a kid. With its sugary sweetness and spices, it was a holiday treat reminiscent of apple juice, yet with the flavors of the season. This same feeling gets an adult twist in a refreshingly iced version.

Ingredients (per 8 ounce glass)

  • 4 ounces apple cider
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1-2 thin apple slices
  • 2-3 mandarin orange sections
  • 2 ounces G Fifty sake
  • Anise stars
  • Orange peel (for garnish)
  • Ice cubes

Method

  • Combine apple cider, brown sugar, cloves, allspice, and nutmeg. Heat in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Add cinnamon stick, apple slices, and orange sections and let steep for 15 minutes.
  • Add ice to glass, and pour in G Fifty sake.
  • Add anise stars, and pour apple cider mixture over top of ice and sake mixture.
  • Garnish with a curled orange peel.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That may seem involved, but if it is made in large batches, it’s fairly easy. And a crock pot is perfect for mulling the cider for a few hours if you are making it in a large quantity for a special event, such a New Year’s Eve or a wedding (of course!). It’s not only lovely, but it is one of the most perfectly refreshing wedding cocktail recipes. Yum!
