Top 3 Cocktails for Weddings

June 15, 2017

It’s wedding season! We’ve had a chance to come up with quite a few wedding cocktails, let’s look at our top three favorites.

Sparkling Punch

Nothing says “wedding” like sparkling wine, and it makes a great signature cocktail for your reception. One of our favorite recipes comes from Southern Living. Take one can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate and four cups of white cranberry juice cocktail. Let it chill for one to 24 hours. Just before serving, stir in one bottle of extra dry champagne or sparkling wine. Our East Nashville liquor store team can help you pick the perfect bottle of sparkling wine to complement this wedding cocktail.

Classic Pimm’s Cup

By the time wedding season is in full swing, it’s usually mid-to-late summer, and you’re ready for a nice, refreshing beverage. This classic cocktail is light and perfect for a summer wedding. All you need is Pimm’s No. 1, sparkling lemonade or lemon-line soda, ice and garnishes like strawberries, cucumber, mint or oranges. Mix one part Pimm’s with three parts lemonade. A Classic Pimm’s Cup is one of those perfect drinks for events all summer long.

Honeydew Ginger Gin Fizz

This cocktail is fun because it can be adapted: substitute vodka for gin or lemon juice for yuzu juice. This recipe comes from The Knot and features gin, honeydew juice, yuzu juice, iced green tea, ginger beer, candied ginger, and mint. It’s a little more complicated than our other recipes, but we promise it’s worth the effort. Don’t forget to ask one of our East Nashville liquor store employees for recommendations on the perfect gin or vodka to pair with the flavors of the Honeydew Ginger Gin Fizz.
