Let’s find some bright and cheerful cocktails for a spring and summer wedding!

Aperol Spritz

We love how bright and colourful an Aperol Spritz can look, especially in wedding photographs! Picture the sunshine and everyone with their sunglasses on – it couldn’t be more perfect! Aperol Spritz is a well known favourite for warmer weather cockails, so if you have this as an option on your wedding day, you are guaranteed to impress.

To make the perfect Aperol Spritz at home, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Plenty of ice
  • Aperol
  • Prosecco
  • Soda
  • An orange slice

Acceptance Speech

Fancy something a little sweeter but not too much? Cointreau have made this bespoke cocktail specifically for weddings and for those with a sweet tooth. Elderflower can taste divine during spring and summer months. Why not make the cocktail look even classier with some edible gold leaf or a cocktail cover with your initials on it? The options are endless.

  • 30ml Cointreau L’Unique
  • 30ml Fresh Grapefruit Juice
  • 90ml Elderflower Tonic

For those with a real sweet tooth, why not have a mwah-tini at your wedding? This cocktail screams summer with the mango, passionfruit and summer berries. Not many people dislike a pornstar martini, so might as well spice it up with this one. You can never go wrong with this option. Add a cocktail topper or some passionfruit on the top as an essential.

  • 12 part Chambord
  • 34 part mango vodka
  • 1 part passionfruit juice
  • 14 part lime juice
  • 14 part sugar syrup
  • Garnish with a slice of passionfruit
  • Served with a shot of prosecco

Hendrick’s Clover Club

We cannot help but add this to our list of Spring and Summer cocktails! Clover Clubs are definitely one of the prettiest cocktails out there and can bring a burst of energy on your wedding and in photos! This is the perfect cocktail to add a cocktail topper on the top due to the egg white on the surface. This cocktail is certainly an insta-worthy one during the warmer months.

  • 50 ml Hendrick’s Gin
  • 25 ml Lemon Juice
  • 20 ml Raspberry Syrup
  • 1 Egg White
