3 unique wedding cocktails from Of Love and Regret [Pictures]
We can all agree on one thing: open bar. We can all agree on one other thing: Think outside what you drank in college. Miller Lite is fine to offer. So is the typical array of vodka, gin, whiskey whatevers. But why not spice things up, alchohol-wise? Ryan Travers, the beverage director at Canton's Of Love and Regret (ofloveandregret.com), created three very special wedding cocktails featuring some unusual ingredients you’ve likely never seen at a wedding -- or elsewhere. Your guests will be impressed.

For the husband-to-be: The Bon Voyage Fiance( Ryan Travers / / March 18, 2014 )
We were thinking, "Goodbye to the engaged, hello to the married life," step into the reality of marriage. We chose scotch, because we love drinking scotch at the OLAR and we think of it as a serious drink for the thinkers of the world. You are making the plunge into married life. It's a big step, and big thoughts revolve around it, and scotch fits the bill. We made the drink a little easier to handle than a full glass of single malt, with the Floc and Luxardo added for a touch of richness to balance it out, and a little acid with the orange.
How to make the Bon Voyage Fiance
2 oz. scotch or whiskey (we like to use Glenrothes scotch or Breuckelen Distilling 77 rye and corn
1/3 oz. Islay scotch for a touch of smoke (we like Bowmore)
3/4 oz. Floc de Gasconge
1/3 oz. Luxardo Sangue Morlacco
1/2 squeezed orange
Stir all ingredients with ice and strain over fresh ice; garnish with orange core and Luxardo cherry.
