Speciality Drinks: {Wedding Details}

With the start of wedding season upon us and the temperature rising, I can't help but think about what cool, refreshing cocktails will be served up this spring.

Here are a few of my favorite options...

Guests are always pleasantly surprised
when greeted with a colorful glass of sangria. 
The best thing about sangria is you can mix up the recipe to fit your liking. 
Not a fan or red wine?  Why not try white?

Mojito with a Carribbean twist?  Yes, please!
Check out this winning signature cocktail created by
Ice Box Bar Services's mixologist, Boris Van Dyck,
that was featured at this year's Charleston Food + Wine Festival.

Going green for your big day?
Duvall Events featured this delicious,
chilled beverage at the Green Fair this past fall.

1 part Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, 1 Part Lemonade and a Twist of Lemon over ice. 
Your Northern guests will fall in love with this fan-favorite.
How's the saying go..."Put some South in your Mouth"?

Tiger Lily Martini
Okay, this one is a personal favorite. 
While in college, this was the signature drinks at one of my favorite restaurants.
It's delish. 
Not too strong, not too sweet. 
Something that both men and women enjoy.
You'll have to excuse my bartending terms, hopefully this makes sense :)

1 part Peach Schnapps
1 part Sour Mix

Dash of Sprite
Top of with champagne
Drip Chambord down the side of the glass

Unfortunately, they don't have a website and no image of the beverage
but I promise it's worth testing out :)
