Reception Cocktails

One of the best ways to keep your guests entertained throughout your wedding reception is to have a fun cocktail menu they can choose from. WeddingWire offers some great suggestions to help make your open bar one to remember.

Garnishes, Garnishes!

Garnishes add both decoration and/or flavor to a cocktail. Talk to your caterer about adding a fun citrus twist, decorative umbrellas, or custom stirrers to both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks!

Skip the sugary drinks and go healthy.

People are looking for healthier cocktails more than ever before. Ask your bartender to create a cocktail using a popular seltzer or an all natural mixer. Then, consider adding a fresh fruit or herb to the drink for a natural flavor.

Mocktails:
It’s always a nice touch to have a fun mocktail for your guests who are driving or not able to have an alcoholic drink. Consider a fun sparkling lemonade with a seasonal garnish so that the drink doesn’t feel boring or too simple.

Classics are a must:

Never underestimate the power of a good, old fashioned cocktail. Promote the classic drinks people haven’t had in ages, such as a French 75, a Manhattan, or a Gimlet.
