You have your signature drinks, and then you have how you choose to serve them up. Our last blog post was about swizzle sticks, and helping your guests enjoy their drinks and your special day. Now we present to you ways to really wow your guests.
Anyone can put out a bottle of wine, a keg of beer, or a punch bowl. But when is the last time that you went to a party and poured a watermelon cocktail out of a keg…made of watermelon?
Whether you’re having a backyard engagement party, or a tented event, this laid back way to have some fun cocktails will surely keep your guests talking. Perfect for anytime in the spring or summer, this takes a little bit of DIY effort and a lot of love, and then everyone can sit back and enjoy. Similar to carving out a pumpkin, just take the melon out, run it through a food processor in batches, and replace it into the watermelon. What you choose to add into it is up to you! Anything from vodka, to seltzer, to rum, there is no right or wrong. Just make sure you have enough to go around.
Watermelon isn’t the only holder of fun drinks. If you’re hosting a fall event, consider the great pumpkin as a centerpiece. Simply cut open the top of the pumpkin and take everything out from the inside. Place a glass or plastic bowl inside and fill it with anything you like. You could choose to fill it with ice and add some bottled drinks, or simply make a fun fall punch in the bowl.
Looking for a way to let everyone have their own personal drinks? Use strawberries as shot glasses as seen above. Since strawberries would make a mess, consider making the inside a jello shot so people can just pop them in their mouths and enjoy. What a great way to get the party started!
Creativity is key here, so just let your imagination run wild and have a good time! Don’t forget to send us pictures of what you come up with and let us know what your guests have to say!
