Around here we don’t need an excuse to find and try out new drink recipes. But with Valentine’s Day just a few days away, we’ve got a pretty great one. So we went on the hunt, and boy did we find a tasty mix! To share our latest cocktail find, which just happens to be perfect for the upcoming holiday of love and certainly for any wedding celebration, we’re also taking the opportunity to provide some insider tips on how to style your drink station. Using just a few easy tricks we’ll show you how to take any sipper set up from merely functional to simply fabulous.

Here’s the breakdown on everything you need to know to get the look, finished off with that cocktail recipe we promised.

Styling Tip #1: Go for the Upgrade

Appearance is everything. Swap out typical glassware options for stylish stemware that works with your wedding day design.

Styling Tip #2: Style your Stem

Don’t have the budget for upgraded glassware? Give a simple stem a decorative face lift by adding creative, theme appropriate charms to elevate their look.

Styling Tip #3: Signature Sippers

Instead of serving straight sparkling wine or a common cocktail, go with a drink that either has special meaning to you and your new hubby, or that acts as a representation of your wedding day design. Give it a name and you’ve got your own personal signature sipper.

Styling Tips #4 – 6: Bring on the Extras

Think beyond the drink. Fill your display with pretty details that won’t go unnoticed. Think a paper lantern overhang, custom personalized signage and floral printed paper straws, for the complete pretty picture.

Wedding Drink Recipe: Strawberry Kiwi Sangria

Signature Sip - Sangria Recipe - Drink Recipe - Wedding - Party - Non-Alchohlic Beverage

With the weekend a blissful few hours away and Valentines Day just around the corner, we thought this was the perfect time to share  the quick and simple drink recipe that we used in our Candy Colorful styled wedding last summer. We couldn’t get enough of this delicious concoction while on location so believe us when we say it’s the perfect refreshment to reminisce about the hot summer days that we’re all yearning for and is a stellar pick for a signature sip at your big day (or as a Valentines Day treat with its’ bright red color!). Everyone can enjoy this non-alcoholic recipe, but if you’re craving something a bit more spirited we recommend adding white Muscat or light rum to taste. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
