Summer Cocktails

The traditional drink for the drink reception is champagne but couples are now being more adventurous with their choices coming up with signature drinks. It is usual to have at least 2 alcohol options and 1 soft option available. Allow 3 drinks per person and if it is summer have jugs of iced water available to quench guests thirst.


I’ve listed the cocktails I find my clients prefer but do visit You and Your Wedding where they have 10 fabulous cocktails for you to consider.
