A Reflection of Tastes
Have you thought about bar selections for your wedding? Should you serve liquor, or beer and wine only? According to Nicole, owner of The Wine Flower, you can host a cocktail bar without having to acquire an ABC Permit by using different wines, beers and seltzers instead of liquor to create your cocktails. Talk about a savings without skimping on taste!
Signature drink menus are a great way for couples to share their story through personalized cocktails. Here are three top categories to consider:
In this punch made from the red or white wine of your choice, you can create a bold, sweet, dry or fruity taste for you guests to enjoy. Mixed with juice, and garnished with an array of fresh fruit makes this selection both full of flavor and bright with color. Add an herb sprig of rosemary, mint or whatever you fancy and, voila, you have the perfect cocktail!
Who doesn’t love a little bubbly at their wedding? It is in fact a celebration! These fruited champagnes are an excellent refreshment for before the ceremony, during cocktail hour and reception and during the toasts. Mimosas are also a great choice if having a brunch wedding as they pair well with breakfast goodies. Go the traditional champagne and orange juice route or offer several juice options for guests to enjoy. They won’t be disappointed and neither will you.
3. Wine Cocktails
Dress up your wine with cocktails such as sweet wine daiquiris, wine margaritas, raspberry frosé or herbal seltzer spritzers. The diversity of wine lends itself to be used for interesting and imaginative recipes. Whether you create your own signature flavor or follow the guidance of a seasoned mixologist, potential pairings are endlessly delicious.
