Custom Cocktails For All Your Wedding Parties

  |   By Weddingbells

A key part of entertaining is a great drink menu. With a host of parties happening leading up to your wedding (never mind the big day itself!) serving a few amazing bespoke cocktails is essential. A sweet fruity base is always a great place to start when it comes to mixing up and we’ve teamed up with Ocean Spray to create three amazing drinks (including one non-alcoholic) using Ocean Spray® Cran-Pineapple™ Cocktail to be served at any one of your celebratory occasions from engagement party to bridal shower to wedding day.
