Inspired wedding food – your drinks reception


This weekend just gone marked our annual trip to Taste of Christmas (I’ll write about that soon) and it was very timely as the event was a mecca for so many different types of drink – both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Whilst I will be showcasing some individual suppliers and maybe even some gorgeous recipes, I wanted to first share some inspiration from this summer for your very own wedding drinks reception.

Cool and refreshing cocktails and classic drinks

Cool and refreshing – with summer weddings comes the desire for long ice cold drinks, think bold fruity delights such as punches or zingy refreshing citrus flavours such as mojitos (one of my fave cocktails!) or staying with the classic champagne or bucks fizz.

Warm and toasty – but if you’ve decided to embrace the magical wintery chills then why not treat your guests to something warming, such as spiced mulled cider, Christmassy mulled wine or even a hot toddy!

Bespoke cocktails – you could go all out and opt for a bespoke cocktail to celebrate your marriage, there are some amazing companies out there who can bring a real flare to your event with beautiful and delicious beverages. I’m excited to be sharing some behind the scenes with Drinks Fusion with you towards the end of the year so watch this space.

It’s not all about the alcohol – I love a cocktail, but of course we can’t have all the deliciousness going to just the “drinkers” so don’t forget about your non-alcohol drinking guests. Elderflower cordial has been popular in the summer, but there are so many other options out there like iced tea and a whole variety of flavoured cordials and waters to whet your appetite. And while we’re on the subject of waters, take a look at the infused water post we published in the summer.  I will also be introducing you to a couple of awesome tasting drinks in the coming months that you wouldn’t believe aren’t alcoholic they taste so good….. Seedlip and Azizi.

Delicious non alcoholic drink options for your wedding reception

So what drinks will you be serving your guests?

Until next time
