Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day! Welcome to the start of summer.
One of the best ways to cut down on bar costs is to serve one or two “specialty “ or “signature” drinks instead of a full-service bar. If you’re having a summer wedding, you’ll want your drinks to have a summer flavor.
Here are five classic summer cocktails to consider:

Here are five more you may not have heard of, but are just as delicious.
Champagne Sangria (Triple Sec, rum, vodka, brandy, blended strawberries, chopped fruit, sparkling wine)
Pimm’s Cup (Pimms (a British gin-based drink), ginger ale, lime soda, cucumber)
Summer Solstice (Equal parts mango juice, Cointreau, Coco-Polada pineapple coconut wine (it's a Florida thing) and plenty of ice.
Scarlett Ohara (Southern Comfort, cranberry juice, touch of lime)
Michelle’s favorite (Black cherry vodka, sprite zero) My friend Michelle suggested this, so I named it after her. Since it’s not a combo known to a lot of people, you can feel free to name it after yourself and serve it as your signature wedding drink!
