Keep offering your guests individual, special details throughout your wedding day. From the décor to the drinks, everything is important. The bar is a vital part of many newlyweds’ reception party, allowing the couple to let their hair down with all their family and friends. And as the warmer weather starts to make an appearance, cocktails become even more relevant. So why not have signature wedding cocktails representing you and your partner’s new life together?
With memorable names and seasonal flavours, these cocktail recipes might be the final personal touch you and your groom have been looking for.
If you’re marrying in the summer months, think about using seasonal fruits like watermelon in your cocktails. This recipe asks for a strawberry-watermelon combination, a healthy splash of vodka and hints of basil, ginger and lime.
Champagne and Fruit
Sometimes a signature drink can be more about the garnishing than the contents of the drink, like in the case of this drink. Add slices of soaked pears in the champagne glass, along with skewered berries on top.
