Traditional summer weddings have dramatically changed over the past few years, with the Bride & Groom looking for that little something that will make their big day stand out. Instead of choosing a drink for each part of the event, such as wine with dinner, champagne with the toast, and cocktails at the after party, wedding drinks have become more focussed on the personality of the happy couple.

Summer drinks of the moment include sparkling champagne mimosas, sweet mojitos and ice cold beer. For something non-alcoholic what about sparkling lemonades and fruity mock-tails… how does watermelon sound?
