Seasonal Cocktails to Refresh Your Wedding
While organizing a wedding menu, couples will customarily elect to serve a seasonal spread, taking advantage of local retailers and their ability to provide the best ingredients. This provides an enjoyable dining experience, but what many couples don’t tend to think about is their cocktail menu. If you’re serving seasonal food, why not serve seasonal drinks?
As in cooking, using fresh ingredients yields superior results, therefore using plants that are in season will produce undeniably exceptional drinks. Even if only for garnishes, implementing the freshest herbs, spices, and essences raise the quality of a cocktail remarkably. Additionally, many seasonal flavours complement each other and work well to create a comprehensive drink menu.
Cocktails That’ll Put a Spring in Your Step
Even the thought of Spring evokes a feeling of rebirth and renewal. It’s no wonder the flavours associated with the season are light and slightly sweet. Most Spring cocktails incorporate honey or ginger, but are no stranger to subtly tart tangerines and succulent nectarines. Moreover, as it’s a time of regrowth, Spring is forever linked to the colour green, so it’s no wonder cucumber, green tea, and honeydew melon occasionally make appearances in these fresh drinks.
Cool Drinks and Summer Lovin’
Summer is synonymous with sun, and with the heat comes dreams of ripe strawberries and blueberries. Arguably one of the most versatile times of the year for the seasonal beverage, summer conjures cravings for the freshest of fruits, essentially removing all limits on the flavours associated with the season. Feel like a picnic? Break out the cherries, watermelons, and peaches! Perhaps you’re opting for a more tropical vibe? Mango, banana, and coconut are your go-to flavours.
