Whilst we’re talking about cocktail hour, lets not forget the drinks. Friends of mine who married earlier this year served a Swedish cocktail to reflect the groom’s nationality (all I can remember was it tasted good) so I wondered how many of you plan to serve themed cocktails?
Instead of your more lewd Slippery Nipples and bog standard Cosmopolitans, wouldn’t the choice of a French Kiss or Merlin’s Love Potion be much more appealing? Recipes are after the cut.
1 msr vodka, 1msr raspberry liqueur, 1/2msr grand marnier, 1 msr whipping cream.
Shake and strain. Garnish with a cherry or raspberry on a cocktail stick.
Merlin’s Love Potion
2msr watermelon schnapps, 1/2 msr lemon vodka, 1/4msr strawberry brandy.
Shake and strain into a glass of crushed ice, garnishing with a lemon slice or sugar-dipped strawberry.
