A summer wedding is more complete if it includes refreshing cocktails, in addition to its exotic décor and lounge music. We present 10 innovative cocktails that you could offer your guests so that they get into a party mode on your wedding night.
CUCUMBER WATERMELON MARGARITA
Summer flavours gain substance in a pink cocktail, a variation of the famous Margarita drink. Its main ingredients are watermelon, cucumber, lime, Grand Marnier or any other orange liqueur and of course lots of ice.
A cocktail that contains rum always gets everyone in a good mood. If it includes figs, thyme syrup, fresh lemon juice, apricot liqueur, salt and pepper and lots of ice as basic ingredients, the cocktail automatically gains more interest. Serve it with freshly cut thyme.
KIWI BLUEBERRY MOJITO
Ernest Hemingway’s favourite drink, which originates from Havana, Cuba, has many interesting variations. One of them is the mojito made with kiwis and blueberries! What else does it need? Limes, mint leaves, carbonated water, rum and sugar in a blue/green colour for the glass decoration.
COTTON CANDY CHAMPAGNE
If you have not tasted this cocktail yet, you are missing out. It is also very easy to make. Just add a little strawberry candy in a glass of champagne and pour your favourite champagne.
PLUM & THYME PROSECCO SMASH
A cocktail with plums, thyme sprouts, lemon juice, thyme syrup and a bottle of prosecco or your favourite sparkling drink. Do not forget crushed ice to enjoy an unforgettable refreshing experience!
TOASTED FROZEN COCONUT MOJITO
Yet another must summer cocktail alternative. Make it with fresh lime juice, homemade mint syrup and then mix it with coconut milk and white rum. Garnish it with mint leaves and baked coconut flakes.
POMEGRANATE, GINGER & SAGE SPRITZERS
Refreshing, but also eye-popping, this cocktail includes pomegranate, ginger and sage, along with honey and lemon. This is exactly what you need to offer your guests sweet, refreshing, but also exotic tastes and flavours.
BLACKBERRY SAGE SPRITZER
This cocktail is the ultimate summer cocktail! The earthly and natural flavour of the sage syrup along with the herbs becomes interesting when mixed with soda, blackberries and ice. Garnish the cocktail with fresh sage leaves and blackberries.
It is no coincidence that this cocktail is called a love potion! A tad bit sweet (thanks to the blueberry syrup), and a little sparkly (due to champagne), to add a festive atmosphere! Garnish the cocktail with thyme sticks.
MANGO & BLACKBERRY VODKA COOLER
As refreshing as it looks, the Mango & Blackberry Vodka Cooler is made by mixing syrups of distilled fresh mangoes, vodka, fresh mint leaves, carbonated water, blueberries and of course lots of ice!
