Served following the ceremony and before the reception, this drink is a good opportunity to tell your guests a story. We love drinks that tell where the couple is from or enjoy traveling to (think Mai Tai or Cape Codder), the Lowcountry (think a sweet tea cocktail), or that remind the bride and groom of a family member. You can also feel free to just choose a drink that you love -- no story required. Not to mention you can also name it whatever you like so have some fun here!
We loved this Moet Ice Imperial champagne cocktail served over ice with fresh strawberries and spring of mint. Delish! Perfect for a refreshing and sweet twist on champagne during the spring and summer.
Sometimes an old school, traditional drink can be "new again" just in the way it's presented. Like an old fashion, or this Cherry Hooker Brandy Cocktail that was popular in the 50's and 60's. Served up in a fun glass and garnished with a cherry, this grown up drink looks as good as it tastes.
Here are some more for y'all to consider!
- Tangerine Tango. Tangerine juice, light rum, ginger simple syrup, mint and club soda.
- Blue Ocean. Blue curacao, vodka, grape juice, simple syrup. Perfect for the beach!
- Classic Mojito. Need we go on? One couple we knew served this as their signature drink because they shared one on their first date!
- Peach Fuzz Daiquiri. Rum, peach juice, club soda. This makes a beautiful colored drink!
- Champagne Julep. Yum!
Whatever you serve at your wedding, Spencer Special Events always encourages our couples to offer a selection of beverages including non-alcoholic specialty drinks (aka "mocktails") to their guests. Making sure that there is a variety of options to choose from is a top priority. Experiment, Explore, and have fun!
We hope we have given you a few ideas that spark your interest! Cheers!
