Let’s face it, the food, dancing, and drinks are what most people will remember about your wedding. Obviously, your guests will appreciate the small, personal details you incorporate into your big day, but it’s the food, drinks, and dancing that will leave the most lasting impression. This spring, why not wow your guests with an amazingly fresh and vivacious cocktail? Review this spring cocktail guide to see if any of these signature cocktails seem perfect to leave a memorable impression.
Fruits are synonymous with spring and what better way to invite some spring freshness to your wedding than with a nice fruity cocktail? A mango martini is a perfect drink to do just that. Add 2 parts Grey Goose vodka, ½ part pineapple juice, ½ part mango puree, and a splash of sour mixer into a shaker. Add in some ice, shake well, and then strain it into a martini glass.
Champagne is the libation of choice for celebrations, but a Champagne Mojito will truly make your cocktail menu stand out. You’ll start by pouring a champagne flute 1/8th of the way with lime juice. Then add a lime wheel and mint leaves. Fill the rest of the flute with champagne and add a sprig of fresh mint for the perfect spring cocktail.
This is a refreshing spring beverage that can be made with or without vodka. The delicate floral flavor of lavender has notes of rosemary and mint, which makes it perfect to diffuse some fresh spring flavor into a batch of lemonade. Serve as is or add a shot of vodka for an adult spring cocktail that will be a guest favorite.
White Cucumber Sangria
A rich glass of sangria might seem like it’s meant for the summer months, but this White Cucumber Sangria is the perfect cocktail for your spring wedding. Combine a crisp white wine, sweet honeydew melon cubes, and cucumber for a fresh, earthy taste that’s great for a festive outdoor wedding. This is a spring cocktail that your guests won’t soon forget!
This one is a British favorite that is sure to inject some freshness into your bar lineup. Pour ginger ale into a Collins glass, followed by Pimms liquor and lime juice. What really brings the personality out in this drink, is the quirky garnish of fresh mint, a twist of lemon, and a cucumber slice. Just remember, this one is stirred, not shaken.
