Five Alternative and Fun Wedding Drinks
You’ve got the gown, the food and the venue. What’s next? Drinks, of course. If you’re over the standard beer and wine, it’s time to spice things up with a little something special. Whether you're looking for boozy treats or alcohol-free delights, these five alternative drinks will impress your guests and tickle their taste buds. Bottoms up!
Pre-made mason jar drinks
If you’re looking for a great way to save money and still share some amazing signature drinks with your guests, pre-mixed mason jars are the way to go. Mix the drinks in mason jars and pop them in a large metal bucket filled with ice for your reception. You can really dress this idea up by decorating the buckets and jars, and using decorative straws.
That’s right- milkshake shooters. “Boozy milkshakes” are incredibly trendy right now. Combine a tasty treat with a little bit of alcohol and you have a mini shooter that’s not only beautiful and fun, but unique. Try a few different flavors and vary the liquor used as well. You can really play this up during the summer months.
Spiked hot apple cider
There are few things that taste better than warm apple cider on a cool fall evening, and there are few things that make apple cider more enjoyable than a little bit of rum or brandy. Seasonal drinks like these put a unique spin on your reception and you can expect plenty of compliments.
Chocolate peanut butter margarita
Sweet, sinful and oh-so-delicious. Everyone with a sweet tooth knows that peanut butter and chocolate can’t be beat. If your guests are bigger drinkers than dessert lovers, this might be the perfect combination to meet your needs.
Vodka chai tea
Flavored teas have been a popular choice for weddings in the past, but this iced drink packs an extra punch. Vanilla vodka is the perfect choice to create a smooth and delicious drink with fall flavor. Garnish with cinnamon sticks and a thin layer of whipped cream to add visual appeal.
