Sip, Sip, Hooray!

It's that time of year again where the days are getting longer and the temperatures are getting warmer. Summer is officially in full-swing with the kick-off of Memorial Day Weekend today. To pair with our summer moods, we have some fun signature drink ideas to match.

Signature drinks can give your event a little extra personality – they can match YOU as a couple, or you can tie your drinks into whatever look and feel you are going for in your wedding. Summertime signature drinks typically are light and refreshing and will keep you cool in the rising summer heat. Some of our favorites are listed for you below!

The Bees Knees – Gin, lemon juice and honey. Shaken and served in a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist

Daiquiri – Light rum, lime juice, & simple syrup. Add some summer fruits to give it a little extra pizazz like blueberry, pineapple or strawberry.

New York Sour – Whiskey, simple syrup & lemon juice. Shaken and served over ice in a rock glass. Topped with red wine

Summer Sangria – There are many different variations of a sangria so choose whatever tastes right for the night! Our favorite summer sangria is a Watermelon and Pineapple Sangria – Moscato, brandy, lime juice, club soda and the fruit.

Aperol Spritz – Sparkling wine, Aperol, soda water. Pour the sparkling wine over ice in a Collins glass. Add in Aperol and soda water. Top with orange juice.

This last one was created by our Head Bartender!

Vodka, Earl Grey tea Syrup, Rosemary and Lemon Juice. Served over ice.
