Give You Summer Cocktails Your Guests Will Love

Infuse your wedding cocktails with muddled berries, aromatic herbs or a bright squeeze of citrus for a refreshing signature drink. Below, some of our favorite swizzled sips to inspire your guests’ preceremony fun or cocktail hour (and keep them cool).  Summer drinks call for fresh fruit, rosé spritzers and a whole lot of lemonade.

Boozy Arnold Palmer

Spiked Arnold Palmer signature wedding cocktail

Iced tea and lemonade marry beautifully—we all know it. But a splash (or two) of vodka makes this the perfect cocktail hour sip.

Mixed Berry Mojito

Mint and berry signature wedding reception cocktail

Crushed berries stain this classic rum-based cocktail a beautiful ruddy ombre, while fresh mint leaves add an earthy finish.

Lavender Lemonade with Pear Vodka

Lavender lemonade with pear vodka signature wedding cocktail

Nostalgia never tasted so chic. Not only is this drink lovely to look at, but lavender and pear add that “something extra” to the iconic, summertime favorite.

Rosé Sangria

Rosé champagne sangria signature wedding cocktail

Sangria and summer go together like, well, rosé and summer. Dress up your favorite fruity rosé with a mixture of berries (the classic), kiwi (the unexpected) and even a splash of rum or brandy if you’re feeling extra naughty.

Grilled Peach and Bourbon

Grilled peach and bourbon signature wedding cocktail

Grilled fruit means it’s finally summer. Bourbon gets a bright pick-me-up from grilled peaches and lemon juice for a drink that’s both vibrant and sophisticated.

Pimm’s Cup

Pimm's Cup passed reception cocktails

Mix citrusy, spicy Pimm’s with either lemonade or ginger ale, then add a healthy dose of fresh garnishes (think: cucumbers, apples, strawberries, oranges and mint) to recreate this English delight. Tip: Substitute lemonade or ginger ale for champagne and you’ve got yourself a “Pimm’s Royal Cup.” Cheerio!

Champagne Lemonade Spritzer

Lemonade Champagne spritzer signature wedding cocktail

This spritzer is tart, boozy and fizzy! Stick a cute straw in your champagne lemonade for endless refreshment, then add raspberries or blackberries for garnish and a bottom-of-the-glass treat.

Blushing White Sangria

Seasonal fruit like grapefruit, oranges, raspberries and strawberries make white wine blush with color and burst with flavor. Served over ice, there’s nothing better on a hot summer day.
