Serving up signature cocktails is a great way to greet your wedding guests at your reception and what could be a better ingredient for your destination wedding drinks than the classic celebration choice – champagne!

 

There are many marvelous mixtures out there that incorporate fabulous fizz, but this week’s Friday Five focuses on timeless tipples that are traditional to countries from around the world.

 

A champagne signature cocktail will always go down well with your thirsty wedding guests, but the drink you hand out can be country and travel themed as well – perfect if you’re getting married abroad.
