Food and beverages are always a major part of the wedding reception’s catering. After putting much though into the details of the wedding, the bar must not be left as an afterthought. To keep guests entertained and feeling refreshed, you should also cleverly plan the cocktails to be served in your beach wedding. Here are some cocktail suggestions to inspire you.
Lots of people now seem to really like and appreciate the taste of pumpkin spice in their coffee. Why not serve pumpkin martini with pure pumpkin puree and vodka for a good kick? The maid of honor and best man can make their toasts to raised glasses of sparkling pumpkin martini instead of some boring old classic drinks.
If your wedding will be in the summer, it is great to use seasonal fruits such as watermelon to form cocktails. You can also blend watermelon and strawberries together for a really sweet concoction that will be best enjoyed by the beach shores. With healthy splash of vodka and hints of basil, ginger and lime or rum plus a hint of coconut, the watermelon refresher can surely be a hit among guests in your party.

Bloody Mary with a twist
The beach wedding is almost associated with the sun, and what better way to celebrate the occasion than drinking it up with a new twist of the Bloody Mary! Made by combining tomato juice, fresh lemon juice, sweet and sour mix, Tobasco sauce, horse radish, salt, freshly ground pepper, and Worcestershire sauce, this recipe will call for another shot. Maple syrup can also add a touch of sweetness. Just be careful not to add in too much, or prepare medicine for diabetes for guests who have high body sugar level. Use two ounces of vodka followed by the Bloody Mary mix. You can also add in bacon and pickled asparagus for an all-out interesting drink.
Honey Lemon Mix
Individually, honey and lemon are said to cure sore throat and work as a stress reliever. Drinking honey lemon mix can make the guests feel more energetic in the beach wedding. This mix can also be the ladies’ favorite signature cocktail. Stir together the lemon juice, honey, with vodka or gin and finish it off by adding lemon wheels as garnish.
