Reception Fun: Signature Drinks

Along with the reception theme from last week, I wanted to dive into fun beverages, more specifically, your signature drink for your own wedding. One of the great things is that you can theme the drinks to go with the seasons, which I think not only looks great, but taste great! What I really like during this late spring / early summer season is really bright colors with lots of fruit. I went on a search to find some of the best drinks on Pinterest that fit this description. So let’s dive in to all the yummy drinks!

1.    Strawberry and Peach Wine Slushies

I really like this drink because it looks super pretty and can be made in advance, which is helpful for a wedding reception coming up. This recipe is customizable as the article talks about switching the peach or strawberries to something a little more to your taste. Mmm, I think a mango and peach wine slushy is in my future!

2.    Blue Raspberry Lemonade

This one is a super easy recipe that also looks pretty. I love how it’s only four ingredients, and one of them is garnish! I think this would be perfect for a little outdoor reception where the sun is out and your favorite summer track is playing on the dance floor.

3.    Peach Mint Bourbon Sweet Tea

What Southern wedding would be complete without sweet tea? This recipe puts a little twist on it making it a little more fun. It’s a bit of work with the pureed peaches, but if you have a big guest list I think could just be taken out and just do the Mint Bourbon Sweat Tea and have it taste great!

4.    Peach Sangria

Who doesn’t love a good Sangria? This peach offers amazing color to any wedding. The recipe is pretty easy and doesn’t need too much prep time, could easily, and probably should be done the same day as consumption. I would recommend this one in the heart of summer because of the color it brings.

5.    Malibu Sunset

A tropical-themed drink. This could maybe elude to where the honeymoon is at? I really like how red-orange this drink is. I think the garnishes are customizable between either an orange or cherries depending on your preference. Either way, it’s a great way to start the tropic theme!

That’s all the drinks I found for today. There’s plenty of other drinks that would be good for your wedding reception. I would recommend browsing Pinterest for some other great ideas. Cheers! Remember to drink responsibly!
