I’m not sure how but, someone (probably Martha) says you must have something at your wedding and we all fall in line. The specialty drink is great example. Don’t get me wrong, I love a yummy cocktail, or two, but since everyone has them, the specialty drink just isn’t feeling so special anymore.
For a new twist, how about serving a punch? You can create a beautiful display with the libation and it might even take the crush off your bar a bit.
