Mexico & Tequila

Tequila is native to Mexico (and we love a good kick start to a wedding), so why not make your signature cocktail choice a classic Margarita, but with a twist! We know you don’t want to be basic, so we scouted out the tastiest and most unique margarita we could find. Feast your eyes on the Watermelon Rosé Margarita. This drink is a perfect mix of sweet and salty, and let’s be real, it just looks so pretty! You’re sure to blow your guests away with this sophisticated and fresh drink. ¡Salud!

 Costa Rica & Coffee

Is there anything better than fresh coffee in the morning? We think not! This is especially true when the coffee beans come from the lush forests of Costa Rica. We know that a long day of wedding events can be tiring, so it seems only logical to choose a coffee infused cocktail for a natural pick me up! We’re pairing coffee with one of our favorite Whiskey drinks. Let me introduce you to the cold brewed Coffee Old Fashioned. This drink is made for ladies and gents, and will provide you with that extra burst of energy to get you through an evening full of dancing.

Jamaica & Rum

Jamaica and rum go hand in hand, so there’s no need to stray from the delicious and warm taste of spiced rum for your signature wedding cocktail. We love a drink that combines sweet, tart and spicy all in one, and that’s where Grapefruit Ginger Spiced Rum Punch comes in. This cocktail is fizzy and light, with bubbles provided by ginger beer and bold flavor from the succulent grapefruit. Not to mention, this drink is incredibly refreshing, which will be perfect for an afternoon wedding in the sun. Say cheers, drink up, and thank us later!
