Mix It Up!

So I was thinking about the potential to do something different with an outdoor spring or summer wedding. One thing that I kept coming back to was the amount of flexibility you have. So why not mix it up a little? What if you did things a little out of the ordinary just for fun?

I would love to do an outdoor garden wedding with a mini cocktail hour before the ceremony. Wouldn't that be so fun and unique? I'm not saying open the full bar with hors d'oeuvres, but doing one great signature cocktail and a simple non alcoholic offering is sufficient. This way people can mingle a little, enjoy a cocktail and then every is seated for the ceremony at one time. I think your guests would really enjoy it and extend the celebration just a little bit!

Here's a cocktail that's a favorite of mine:

Red Eyelet Cocktail

1 part passion fruit liqueur (recommended: Alize Red Passion)
1 part cranberry juice cocktail
1/4 part juice reserved from canned lychee fruit, optional
Fresh cranberries, for garnish

Chill all ingredients. Pour Alize, cranberry and lychee juice into Champagne glass to fill halfway. Top with Champagne. Garnish with whole cranberries skewered on a toothpick. You could even get creative with the toothpick like the one in the photo above just to add a little something extra.

Każdy ma takie momenty w życiu, kiedy kieliszek domowej nalewki jest tym, co człowiekowi jest najbardziej potrzebne. Zziębniętego rozgrzewa, malkontenta pocieszy, byle tylko nie przedawkować - pozytywny skutek murowany. Najlepiej smakuje prawdziwa domowa nalewka zrobiona według dobrego przepisu. Trzeba ją wcześniej przygotować, aby mieć gotowe lekarstwo na przeziębienie, czy chandrę.
