So Summer is just about to depart us for another year and we at Arbutus Hospialitu  look forward to welcoming all you Autumn brides. 

If you haven't already started planning the finer details of your wedding menu and drinks, now would be a good time to start as it will creep up on you sooner than you anticipate.

Here we have a few little reception drink recipes for you to mull over, for your Fall wedding. The typical Northern Ireland weather will be probably cooler than expected so here are a few beverages to warm your guests.  

Mulled Cider
1.25 oz Bourbon
Hot apple cider
Dash of allspice
Tall cinnamon stick
Lemon slice

Add bourbon to a mug. Fill mug with hot apple cider and dash of allspice. Garnish with tall cinnamon stick and lemon slice.

It's Thyme
2 oz bourbon
.5 oz maple syrup
.5 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice

Muddle thyme then combine ingredients and serve on the rocks. Garnish with a lemon peel.

Apple Champagne Cider
1 bottle champagne
1 cup apple cider
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon

Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip champagne flutes in water to wet the rims, then dip in cinnamon sugar mixture. Fill champagne flutes 1/4 full with apple cider, then top off with champagne.

Whiskey Mix
1.5 oz Bourbon
1 tsp lemon juice
.5 tsp sugar
Orange slice
Maraschino cherry

Add bourbon, lemon juice, and sugar to a cocktail shaker. Shake with ice and strain into chilled rocks glass. Garnish with orange slice and a maraschino cherry.

There we have it a little something different for your wedding day, but also something your guests will love when coming in out of the cold.
