Wedding cocktails are a delightful addition to your big day. They offer guests a memorable taste experience that amplifies the joy and excitement of the celebration. From elegant classics to personalised concoctions, there's a cocktail for every wedding theme and style. Dive into our guide to discover the best wedding cocktails and learn how to set up an impressive bar with Expo Hire UK.

Choosing the Perfect Wedding Cocktails

Selecting the right cocktails for your wedding is all about matching the drink to the occasion and your personal taste. Consider the season: lighter, fruity cocktails like a Watermelon Margarita for summer, and warm, spiced options like a Hot Toddy for winter. At Expo Hire UK, we provide comprehensive catering equipment hire, including everything you need to serve these beverages in style, from glassware to bar setups.

For a touch of elegance, why not offer a champagne cocktail? Or, for something more casual, a bespoke beer bar could be the perfect fit. We also suggest thinking about your guests' preferences; a well-rounded menu that includes both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options ensures everyone enjoys your special day to the fullest.

Elegant and Simple: The Mimosa

Mimosas are a delightful addition to any wedding, ideal for morning receptions or as a welcome drink. This simple yet elegant cocktail is a favourite with just champagne and orange juice. At Expo Hire UK, our glassware hire ensures you have the perfect flutes to serve them, adding an extra sparkle to your celebrations.

Our team can also assist with linen hire to dress your tables and bars, ensuring that even your serving areas are spectacular. Whether it's a sunny afternoon affair or an elegant evening event, mimosas can be tailored with different juices or garnishes to suit the theme and time of day.

Sangria: A Festive and Fruity Option

Sangria is a wonderful choice for adding a vibrant, communal feel to your wedding. It's a mix of wine, brandy, and a splash of sparkling water bulked out with heaps of fresh fruit. Expo Hire UK offers a range of catering equipment, including large dispensers and punch bowls, perfect for guests to help themselves.

This drink not only caters to a variety of tastes but also serves as a colourful centrepiece to your beverage table. Whether you choose red or white wine as the base, sangria can be customised to fit the seasonal fruits available, ensuring freshness and a burst of flavour in every glass.

To enhance the experience, consider using our high-quality glassware to showcase the Paloma's vibrant colour and effervescence. This cocktail not only adds a sophisticated touch but also pairs wonderfully with outdoor, summery wedding themes.
