Sure, your guests will be quaffing plenty of champagne on your wedding day, but why not give them something extras special to drink? These four Boston cocktail experts recommended their favorite wedding day libations.
“Our First and Forever cocktail is a nod to our newly redesigned ballroom being unveiled this spring. As an update on a classic French 75, the fresh, crisp, and celebratory sip offers timeless taste with a modern twist. Garnished with an orange peel and topped by an edible flower, this cocktail captures the essence of a spring wedding while complementing the aesthetic of our reimagined space where couples will start and celebrate the first day of their forever together.”
“Our Carr Royale cocktail is the kind of drink that makes you want to raise your glass and toast. This refreshing, celebratory sip is a showstopper in presentation with its seasonal floral garnish. Pairing a delightful balance of grapefruit, Aperol, St. Germain, and Prosecco, it’s light enough for cocktail hour in the courtyard, bubbly enough to carry right through dessert in the Serrano Ballroom, and subtle enough to end the evening in our new Lobby Bar where atmosphere is intimate and drinks are brandy-based.”??
“The Reserve Gin Blossom is the perfect spring cocktail, featuring The Langham, Boston’s soon-to-launch custom blend Reserve Gin, distilled in partnership with Bully Boy. The Reserve Gin is paired with St. Germain, Elderflower Fever-Tree tonic and finished with a lemon twist. The elderflower tonic complements the St. Germain and the botanicals in the gin, creating a light, floral and effervescent cocktail.”
“Bourbon, simple syrup, and mint is served over an ice cube made of lime juice & mint leaves. This drink only gets better as the night goes on.”
