Your guests are no doubt looking forward to enjoying some fabulous food and drink at your summer wedding. The food and drink choices can be even more memorable and impactful if you coordinate them with your wedding theme. Explore this list of refreshing summer cocktails to reflect every wedding theme.
If you’re having a rustic wedding, grab some mason jars and straws and present your guests with blueberry mojitos or pineapple rum tea punch! The rum tea punch is especially refreshing with its fruity flavor and its nod to summer’s drink—iced tea.
Another great choice for a rustic wedding is mini rum and coke cocktails. If you can find some tiny glass Coke bottles to serve them in, so much the better!
If you’re keeping it simple and streamlined for your wedding, consider presenting guests with cocktails such as the St. Germain Prosecco with St. Germain, bitters, and lemon slices.
A lovely, romantic summer wedding calls for a delicious rosé spritzer with lemonade and fresh fruit. Try a mixed-berry Mojito, or combine pear vodka with lavender lemonade. The former has a deep, rosy hue, while the latter usually turns out light pink—colors that jive perfectly with a romantic summer wedding theme.
What says summer vacation like a coconut margarita? A dose of tequila blanco and triple sec, along with water, coconut milk, and a hint of squeezed lime, and your guests will be refreshed and ready to party.
Relaxed Summer Wedding
For a fun, festive wedding, try something with a stronger fruity taste, like the sparkling summer peach cocktail. It combines Seagram’s Peach Vodka, pineapple juice, lime juice, and sparkling wine, for a zesty, delightful drink. Garnish it with a lime slice for effect!
If your wedding has a more elegant theme, try fancier cocktails like the black and white martini, served with black olive stirrers. You could also offer a Lavender French 75, which consists of lemon, champagne, and gin, infused with lavender.
