Let’s talk cocktails! There are so many events leading up to your wedding that may require you to provide drinks at these events, I used Daily’s Cocktails to show you how easy it is to put together some cocktails for everyone to enjoy! The good thing is any of these recipes can be easily made into “mocktails” by substituting club soda or lemon lime soda for the alcohol.
1. The Wedding Shower ~ Punch is always a popular choice for any wedding shower!
I chose Float Their Boats Punch!
Daily’s combines their Piña Colada, Raspberry, and Peach Mixes to float fruity juices and scoops of orange sherbet to make this crowd pleasing punch!
Fill a large punch bowl with:
- 1/5 size bottle light rum
- 6 oz. Daily’s Pina Colada Mix
- 1 quart pineapple juice
- 3 cups orange juice
- 1 cup Daily’s Raspberry Mix
- 2 cups Daily’s Peach Mix
- 1 bottle champagne
Mix all ingredients very well.
Pour champagne last.
Scoop out and float quart of orange sherbet within to keep chilled.
2. The Bachelorette Party
I chose the Raspberry Kamikaze!
A fun take on the party starter of shots, with a hint of raspberry, orange and lime.
Pour ingredients into iced cocktail shakers
- 1 3/4 oz. raspberry vodka
- 3/4 oz. Chambord Liqueur
- 3/4 oz. Daily’s Non-Alcoholic Triple Sec
- 3/4 oz. Daily’s Lime Juice
Stir and strain into cocktail glass.
Garnish with a fresh lime wedge.
3. The Rehearsal Dinner
I chose Daily’s Pom Mojito
Pomegranate is all the rage, so why not mix it with rum and mint and call it a mojito? Daily’s Pomegranate Mojito does just this.
In a shaker, combine:
- 1 oz. Daily’s Mojito Mix
- 1 1/2 oz. Daily’s Pomegranate Mix
- 1 1/2 oz. rum
Strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with a fresh mint sprig and a lime squeeze.
4. The Cocktail Hour
I chose The Wine Fooler
Not quite a wine cooler, not quite a cocktail. Add seltzer and white wine to Daily’s Raspberry and Pomegranate Mix for a surprising and exciting drink.
Red Wine Balloon Glass
- 2 oz. white wine
- 1 oz. Daily’s Raspberry Mix
- 1 oz. Daily’s Pomegranate Mix
- 2 oz. seltzer
5. The Wedding
I chose The Blushing Bride
Who says you can’t be pretty in pink on your wedding day? The Blushing Bride is the perfect pink drink to accompany a bride and her pals on the special day. Just mix Daily’s Raspberry Mix, champagne, vodka and a splash of Daily’s Sweet and Sour Mix into a champagne coupe. Garnish with a mint and a best wish for the bride!
2 ounces Champagne or Prosecco
2 ounces vodka
splash of Daily’s sour mix
Mint, for garnish
Garnish with a mint sprig!
6. The Day After Wedding Brunch
I chose the Thick & Spicy Bloody Mary
The brave opt for a Thick and Spicy Bloody Mary. Nothing kick starts your morning like a spicy, savory and fresh concoction adorned with celery, olives, pickles- pretty much anything you can fit in the glass.
Pour ingredients into iced cocktail glass
- 1 oz. vodka, gin, or rum
- 4 oz. Daily’s Thick & Spicy Bloody Mary Mix
- Ice cubes
Garnish with a fresh celery stalk or a cherry tomato.
