During this third installment of seasonal signature cocktails for weddings, your special events planner Blue Linden is covering summer libations! Think of those typical summery flavors, the best available fruits (and some veggies), what you want to cool you down after a sun-filled afternoon, and mix in a little booze. We hope we’ve compiled a great and widely-varied list of seasonal signature cocktail ideas for you to choose from to make your day taste just the way you want it to!
more than just a beverage, like a snack in a glass
strawberry shortcake mimosas with Nilla wafers, strawberry ice cream, vanilla vodka, prosecco, whipped cream, and amazingly juicy summer-fresh strawberries
sweet tea sangria stuffed with seasonal fruits and herbs like raspberries, peaches, and mint (but ultimately you can put in any of your favorite sweet produce)
tabernacle crush brings those summer-perfect peaches to the forefront, made boozy with gin and lillet, and perfectly refreshing for the summer weather
raspberry limoncello prosecco takes your favorite lemonade flavors and elevates you from childhood to adulthood x 1,000
frozen treats to help cool you down
margarita snow cones is another childhood favorite with a twist, and the best part about this one is the endless margarita recipes you could incorporate (sweet, fruity, or even boozier)
boozy orange julius adds together OJ, a little sugar and vanilla, and plenty of vodka for an amazingly refreshing frozen treat for any event
lava flow cocktail is absolutely everything that summer is supposed to taste like: coconut, pineapple, strawberry, and plenty of rum
great twists on our favorite classics
watermelon bloody marys have that one essential summer necessity: watermelon
blackberry mint julep gets its unique color and added sweetness from delicate and wonderfully summery blackberries
blueberry ginger mojito hits the tongue (in a good way) as a tart, sweet, and crisp thirst-quencher
coconut gin and tonic provides a lift to those tastebuds in the form of fresh lime and pallet-pleasing coconut undertones
