5 delicious beverages to serve at your wedding

October 24, 2014

Give your guests a fruity taste sensation with signature cocktails at happy hour. Here are some definite crowd pleasers that, after you've tried them, could very well make it to your menu.

Wonderful watermelon

In the warmer months, light and fruity drinks are the way to go. Watermelon refreshers are just that. With a mouth-watering combination of strawberry and watermelon, along with basil, ginger and lime and a hearty swig of vodka, this cocktail is a must-try.

Classic champagne

Do you want to keep your day utterly classy and delightfully chic? Sometimes there is nothing but champagne. However, you can make your glasses extra special with a signature garnish. Your simple glass of champagne will instantly go up a notch with slices of pear in the bubbly along with a couple of skewered blackberries or blueberries on the top. Finish it off with a sugar rim and you're good to go.

Alternatively, you could infuse your champagne with lavender for a spring inspired take on a classic.

Blueberry bonanza

A blueberry mojito is a deliciously tart drink choice that puts a twist on an old favourite. All the ingredients you need for this delicious cocktail are white rum, fresh lime juice, cane syrup, mint leaves and of course, blueberries.

Stunning St Germain

For something that will look elegant and understated but will still give a kick, opt for a St. Germain. This beautiful white cosmopolitan is made with two parts vodka, one part St Germain, 1/2 part lime juice and 3/4 part white cranberry juicy.

Perfect pineapple

Pineapple rum tea punch, made with fresh pineapple, sugar, lime juice, water, green tea, lemon-lime soft drink, pineapple sherbet and light rum is a stellar option – as is pineapple peach vodka. If you're having your wedding on the beach, opt for one of these fruity delights and feel refreshed in the warm sun.
