The big day is almost here for Prince William and Kate and many of you, myself included, will be sitting in front of the telly, drink in hand, ready to toast the nuptials.If you’re still undecided what alcoholic beverage will best suit the event and your tastes, here are our five favorites:
Royal Buzz Champagne Cocktail – You can have a Royal Buzz for a Royal Wedding. Luscious strawberries and your favorite dry sparkler will have you effervescing through the whole service.
Kir Royal Champagne Cocktail – My personal choice for the big day. The original (sublime) recipe though, with creme de cassis. However, if blackcurrent liqueur does not appeal to you then, by all means, use Chambord instead.
The William – A princely potion indeed for Will. Imperial rum combines with sweet vermouth and a little champagne (of course) in a manhattan-style cocktail. Drop in a fresh cherry or, even better, a cognac-marinated cherry and insist everyone refer to you as “Highness” while you sip.
The Kate – Rather like Ms Middleton herself, The Kate is an elegant libation that is also refreshingly light, bright and bubbly.
Belvedere Royal Wedding Punch – If you’re having a gathering for the wedding, why not make it easy on yourself and mix a bowl of this punch? Then sit back and let everyone help themselves while you enjoy the celebration.
