What’s the best wed­ding sig­na­ture cock­tail? We asked bar­tender Jonathan Neill of the Ritz-Carl­ton, Toronto, and his sug­ges­tion may sur­prise you.

Go old-school. “The clas­sics ex­ist for a rea­son—they work!” says Neill. “They’ve stood the test of time (which is what peo­ple want out of their mar­riage!). Play around with sub­tle vari­a­tions, like gar­nishes or in­fu­sions, to make it your own.” He sug­gests a caprioska, which is a souped-up ver­sion of a clas­sic vodka soda—its sim­plic­ity is some­how more so­phis­ti­cated than any 12-in­gre­di­ent cock­tail. El­e­vate your drink by serv­ing it from an ice sculp­ture. “It’s quite the show­piece and acts as a gath­er­ing point that cre­ates an added so­cial el­e­ment.”
