Clink & Sip! Planning Your Cocktails And Wines For Your Event

Looking for the right beverages to serve at the ultimate summer celebration? You’ve come to the right place. We have the top 5 cocktails and wines that are perfect for any summer party. Our Event Coordinator, Natalie Nerone and General Manager, Bill Powell are happy to assist in choosing which of these cocktails or wines is best for you.

When throwing a wedding or any event, check out new and fun cocktail trends that are popular. For weddings in particular, seasonality is very important when choosing which cocktails to serve to your guests. A big trend in 2018 is incorporating the freshest ingredients available to enhance your cocktails. Should we call out a cocktail below?

In addition to seasonality, signature drinks are making a comeback! Many people are using a hashtag, combining the couple’s names, or having a brides drink and a grooms drink. Some are even naming cocktails after their dogs! Creative and fun twists on classic cocktails, like the Limoncello Collins, are also in style. But most importantly, It’s time to say hello to light cocktails and goodbye to sugary-calorie ridden drinks. More guests are health conscious and will want a guilty-free cocktail to sip on throughout the evening. At the end of the day, staying true to yourselves as a couple and picking something personal to you is the fun part, and guests adore being a part of your love story.
