 ⭐️Our Signature Summer Cocktail: Celestial Spritz

See what we did there? One of the standout offerings from Cheers to You Bartending and Charcuterie is the Celestial Spritz, custom made especially for us! This cocktail is a perfect blend of Prosecco, elderflower liqueur, and a splash of club soda, garnished with a twist of fresh lemon and a sprig of mint. The Celestial Spritz is light, refreshing, and embodies the essence of a summer wedding. It's an ideal welcome drink for guests as they arrive at cocktail hour under the pavilion at Celestial Farms, setting the tone for a joyous and elegant celebration. 

⭐️Classic with a Twist: The Solar Flare Mule

The Moscow Mule is a beloved classic and a personal favorite of my own, and Cheers to You Bartending and Charcuterie adds a summery twist it. The Solar Flare Mule features ginger beer, fresh lime juice, and vodka, but with the addition of seasonal fruits such as strawberries or blackberries. Traditionally served in a copper mug, this cocktail is both visually appealing and deliciously refreshing. It’s perfect for toasting to love and new beginnings under the warm Michigan summer sun and even into the summer evening under the stars! 

⭐️Floral Elegance: Stellar Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade is a non-alcoholic option Cheers to You offers that is as beautiful as it is refreshing. This yummy drink combines freshly squeezed lemonade with a hint of lavender syrup, creating a delicate and aromatic blend. It’s perfect for guests who prefer a non-alcoholic option or for younger wedding guests. The elegant presentation, complete with a sprig of lavender for Lavender Lemonade, served in our bar glassware adds a classy touch to your wedding aesthetics. 

⭐️Under the Stars: Cosmic Cosmo

Step into the cosmos with the Cosmic Cosmo, a signature drink created by Cheers to You Bartending. This enchanting twist on the classic Cosmopolitan will transport you and your guests to a galaxy far, far away with its beautiful deep blue hue and dazzling sparkles, and a touch of interstellar mystery. Perfect for evening celebrations under the Michigan summer stars, this cocktail is as visually stunning as it is tasty, with an edible glitter garnish that transforms your glass into the night sky! 

At Celestial Farms, we understand that every couple wants their wedding to be unique and memorable. That’s why we work exclusively with Cheers to You Bartending and Charcuterie to provide a personalized cocktail experience. Here are some ways to make the most of your summer wedding cocktails:

Customized Cocktail Menus

One of the benefits of working with Cheers to You Bartending and Charcuterie is the ability to create customized cocktail menus. Whether you want to feature a few signature cocktails or a full bar menu, they can tailor the drinks to reflect your personal tastes and wedding theme. From classic cocktails to innovative new creations, the team will work closely with our clients to design a drink menu that complements your vision for your special day.

Signature Drinks for the Couple

A popular trend for weddings is to offer signature drinks that represent the bride and groom. These drinks can be based on your favorite flavors, shared memories, or even your individual personalities. For example, if you and your partner love tropical vacations, a signature drink like a “Mango Mojito” might be perfect. Or, if you both enjoy a good whiskey, the “Peach Bourbon Smash” could be a fitting choice for a summer wedding. Cheers to You Bartending and Charcuterie can help you create unique and meaningful signature drinks that suit your style and that your guests will love. Need some inspo? Check out of of my favorite
