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 friends and family: The Borajo Bombonier( Ryan Travers / March 18, 2014 )
"Borajo" is a reference to a classification of drunkenness which is referred to as dead drunk. It came from a scotch writer/traveler in the 1700s. Bombonier is a wedding present, an Italian gift, so youll have a drunken wedding present for the friends and family of the couple. We went with a cocktail on the rocks, featuring some old spirits and some new. King's Ginger liqueur has an elegant past, having been developed for King Edward VII in 1902. It's strong ginger, perfect for a party -- an elegant and beautiful spirit. The gin is a one-of-a-kind perfect London dry gin developed by Berry Bros. and Rudd working for the king and queen of England. The Smith & Cross rum is fruity and clean -- perfect for an accent. And yes, there's a bit of citrus ginger beer to stay hydrated.

3/4 oz. No. 3 London dry gin
