Mini Beer Tasting

We begin with beers, which are always a good way to start the celebration, especially if you get married on the beach.

Instead of serving them in a regular glass or straight from the bottle, why not create a fun mini beer tasting? Choose about 3-4 interesting brews and ask the servers to serve them in tasting glasses. Your guests will have a lot of fun trying these different beers in one sitting.

If you're getting married in Mexico, you can trade the beers for a mezcal or tequila tasting.


Whiskey Sour Bar

The classic whiskey sour is a great drink for your wedding bar. It's easy to prepare and can be altered to the preferred tastes of your guests.

Set up a whiskey sour bar where your family and friends can customize their drink. They'll love it!


Mimosa bar

Mimosas are a favorite choice for cooling off while sipping on a light, rich, and colorful cocktail.

If you don't want to set up a bar with strong cocktails such as whiskey sours, then you can opt for something a bit lighter like a mimosa, with a variety of fruit juices to choose from. Orange (the classic), strawberry, peach, pomegranate, pineapple... whatever flavor you want!

Cocktails Monogrammed with Your Initials

A creative way to add a unique touch to any cocktail served at your wedding is to add a monogram with your and your partner's initials or a custom wedding logo to the top of the drink.

Discuss this idea with your bartender, they'll surely be able to provide some options on how to carry it out so that each drink your guests receive has this detail.


Spiked Lemonade

There's nothing more refreshing than a glass of lemonade. But if you want to serve lemonades at your wedding with a fun touch, try adding a little alcohol to them.

Vodka and gin pair very well with the acid and citrus flavor of lemonades.


Shaved Ice

Snow cones are always fun, especially if they're prepared as a cocktail with champagne, vodka, gin, tequila, rum, or any other liquor you like.

You can also have some beer and rosé wine flavors, and even some non-alcoholic ones for non-drinking guests.

Kombucha-Based Cocktails

With kombucha being as popular as it is today, make use of it at your wedding bar!

Being an effervescent fermented drink, it works very well as a base for delicious cocktails. Ask your mixologist to make cocktails with kombucha; once again, vodka and gin are some of the best spirits to combine it with.

Which of these drinks would you like to include at your wedding bar? All of these are delicious ideas that'll surely give a unique touch to your beverage service.
