Cocktail Hour

It's called cocktail hour for a reason. Cocktails have a way of setting a mood and bringing everyone together, and typically an hour is all you need to make a new friend and get into a festive spirit! Having a signature cocktail at your wedding reception is a popular way for brides to extend, not only the theme of their wedding, but their personality too. It's a great way to personalize even further AND add another splash of color!

In the south especially, it has become ultra popular to serve a signature cocktail to your guests as a special treat. You can do this for cocktail hour, or for the whole night! At a beach wedding you might consider serving a Tequila Sunrise. For the ultra trendy bride, the special can be a Dirty Martini. And for a down-home southern wedding with pink accents,why not try pink lemonade with a twist? Serve a Mint Julep and everyone will know you two were "Mint to Be"!

The best part is that it doesn't have to be alcoholic! You can do anything from sweet tea, lemonade or limeade to cosmos and margaritas! We just love this trend and there are so many drinks to choose from that are great matches to any party, alcoholic or not. Our friends at PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur have provided us with a couple of recipes for some delicious cocktails that go great at any reception and ones that are sure to be crowd pleasers! Take a look and get shakin'!
