‘Tis the season to get hitched! Winter weddings are all about lush surroundings, dark hues, and twinkly settings. If you’re getting married during the colder months, you might want to stock up your reception with some warm drinks (boozy or otherwise!) to keep your guests nice and cosy throughout the day. Here are our favourites.
1. Mulled wine
An obvious choice for the occasion is mulled wine. Your guests can indulge in this winter favourite as they enjoy your reception, and we guarantee they’ll appreciate the warm, fuzzy feeling it brings with it.
2. Frothy hot chocolate
Now this is one that all guests can enjoy, including the little ones. The classic hot drink will keep your guests warm as the night begins to fall on your wedding day. You can even have a hot chocolate station – because who doesn’t love a warm cuppa topped with marshmallows?
3. Cinnamon whiskey
Whiskey is already a fab warmer but adding a little cinnamon and hot water will do just the trick. The winter twist on a classic Old Fashioned whiskey will definitely keep your guests warm and buzzed enough to hit the dancefloor later on!
4. Boozy hot chocolate
Chocolate and booze? Count us in! Hot chocolate is the easiest thing to add a splash of your favourite alcohol to, and let’s face it, the choices are endless! Add a spot of Baileys, whiskey, Frangelico, Amaretto, or any of your favourite bevvy for a little kick.
5. Mulled mocktail
This is the perfect drink for those designated drivers. The mulled concoction can be jazzed up with festive flavours such as cinnamon, spices, and fruit and will definitely be enjoyed by the non-drinkers.
6. Coconut chai
This one’s a fun one to consider. Chai tea and coconut milk are the staple in this drink, but some recipes blend a little booze for that extra kick, specifically dark rum. This warm drink with an exotic twist will have your guests buzzing.
7. Hot G&T
We heard gin, and we’re game! While the first thing that comes to mind when you hear G&T is the clink of ice cubes, this version is giving us the feels. And the best part is that your classic G&T will remain intact. The secret ingredient? Boiling water!
