Cocktail hour help!

We are doing a 1.5 hour cocktail hour so we can be with everyone and do our toast at sunset together before dinner for 30 min. I know my friends...they wouldn't make it to dinner, they would be hammered.
My chef automatically assumed appetizers at the coctail hours so I assumed this was normal, but I think it can be whatever you want it to be. You know your guests better than your caterer.
Ours is $20/hour for the first hour and $10/hour for each additional hour so $35/person that drinks (we have some non drinkers). Our cocktail menu is:
Parrot Fish Ceviche with Coconut, Lime and Serrano
Serrano Ham, Arugula and Ensenada Olive Tapenade
Crab Churros with Chipotle Aioli
Tuna Tartar with Pickled Jalapenos
Jicama and Mango Skewers with Tajin and Lime
Mar de Cortez Seafood Tostadas with Roasted Tomatoe
Mango Ceviche, Cilantro and Champagne

Our resort offers unlimited private functions if we have over 75 room nights booked for our wedding. We have surpassed this so we are doing a welcome cocktail reception two days before our wedding. We figure this will be a good way for our guests to get to know eachother before the festivities begin.
I am thinking about calling it a "Cox-tail Hour" because our last name is Cox. Is that too cheesy?
I just emailed the resort and asked for the liquor list so we can start creating our signature "cox-tails". I am also having her send us the appetizer list.
