While planning our wedding earlier this year, it quickly became very clear the food we served would be one of the most important aspects of the day. As a recipe developer and avid cook, this seemed only appropriate! In fact, choosing the menu was probably the most difficult decision out of all the details and decisions that go into planning a wedding! While it was difficult, it was also so rewarding and fun for my fiance and I. He loves to eat just as much as I love to cook, and with similar ideas of what “good food” really is, we had such a wonderful time deciding what would be served at our small intimate wedding in Sewanee, Tennessee.
The recipes for this month are completely inspired by the food we chose to serve to our guests in July of last year.
Classic Moscow Mule
Of course everyone loves wine and beer, but how about a fun way for guests to taste the bride and groom’s drink of choice? Vodka Lemonade for her and Old Fashion for him? Or how about a Moscow Mule? Whatever it is, be sure to have the bartenders make the drinks prior to the wedding in bulk, which makes serving the cocktails much easier than attempting to make them individually!
2 oz vodka
3-4 oz ginger beer (not ginger ale)
Juice from half a lime
