Catering for a wedding can be tough and choosing a drink that everyone can enjoy is even tougher. Having a wedding during winter is usually a very good choice because of the cool weather. Be that as it may but no matter which season you choose to have your wedding one thing that will never stop being a bother is deciding the cocktail menu.
Yes, at a wedding, drinks are just as important as the food. Since the event is pretty nerve-racking having some liquid courage is needed to calm yourself so you can fully enjoy the moment. Meaning a dull cocktail menu can make or break the atmosphere of a wedding. So to help you make a winter cocktail menu we’ve made a shortlist of some drinks we think can liven up your special day.
