Perfect Cocktails for your Wedding Day

Cocktails are extremely versatile drinks. Dressed up in the finery of a Champagne flute, they’re perfect for quaffing at your elegant wedding breakfast. However, pour the shaken or stirred concoction into a lowball glass and you have a sophisticated drink to be sipped after the last dance.
With a few carefully-picked ingredients put together by Rewfus Brode from The 43 Club, these delicious drinks can be created to suit any theme, any time of year. Why not serve one of the following to your guests?

SpringBlossom (1)

A delicate Spring Time Blossom for a vintage wedding 
The Spring Blossom is one of our own creations. Refreshing and refined, this cocktail is perfect for weddings taking place early on in the year. The delicate flavours of Lavender and Orange Blossom Water create a wonderfully floral aroma. However, a splash of gin freshens up the entire drink without being too overpowering.
Key components:
  • Gin
  • Lavender
  • Orange Blossom Water

Bellini (1)

A classic Bellini cocktail for your summer festival wedding
The Bellini is a summer wedding classic – deliciously sweet and bursting with fruity flavour. We think many people make a mistake when they ‘build’ a Bellini. By pouring the fruit puree in first, it ends up sitting in the bottom of the glass. To ensure the scrumptious peach taste is present in every sip, we stir the ingredients in a boston cocktail shaker first before decanting it into a Champagne flute.
Key components
  • White Peach Puree
  • Peach Liqueur
  • Prosecco

Corpse Reviver (1)

A devilish drink for your autumn wedding
Themed weddings aren’t everyone’s glass of Long Island Iced Tea. However, if you’re planning to go all out with a Halloween-themed reception, Corpse Reviver #2 is the perfect spooky drink. This cocktail (originally intended as a hangover cure) was included in Harry Craddock’s famous Savoy Cocktail Book, published in 1930. He wrote; “To be taken before 11 am, or whenever steam and energy are needed.” We think this is a great drink to serve when guests start to flag on the dance floor.
Key components:
  • Gin
  • Cointreau
  • Lillet blanc
  • Lemon juice
  • Absinthe rinse
  • Cherry garnish

Negroni (1)

Warm yourself at your winter wedding with a Negroni 
The Negroni was invented in Florence, 1919 at Caffe Casoni. Wanting to strengthen his beloved Americano, Count Negroni asked the bartender to put gin in his drink instead of soda water. The perfect balance between bitter, sweet and herbal flavours, the Negroni does a great job of awakening the senses when it’s cold outside.
Key components:
  • Sweet Vermouth
  • Campari
  • Lillet blanc
  • Gin
  • Orange slice or twist for garnish
