A Wedding Planner’s Wedding – Cocktail Hour


Julia’s Wedding – Cocktail Hour

A cocktail reception is a perfect time for the guests to socialize and eat a range of delectable canapes. Julia and Simon love the idea of a cocktail hour as it adds to the ‘black tie’ theme, and provides variety to the traditional wedding and speeches. A lot of people think of summer when they think of cocktails, however winter cocktails are just as tasty and refreshing. Try some of these out for yourself:

Pomegranate/Cranberry Champagne Cocktail

Perfect for the toasts- blend bubbly with pomegranate or cranberry juice.

Mojito Sparkler

Stunning blend of rum, lime juice, fresh mint and sugar- add some soda for a bit of a sparkle.

White Chocolate Cherry Martini

Combine ice with white chocolate liqueur, vanilla-flavoured vodka, maraschino liqueur and Irish cream liqueur  and garnish with a chocolate covered cherry.

Choco Mocha Mint Cocktail

Blend chocolate liqueur with peppermint schnapps and coffee and top with whipped cream and a mint leaf.
