Summer offers many opportunities for an outdoor wedding from intimate garden ceremonies to destination island weddings. One of the challenges of an outdoor wedding is keeping everyone hydrated. As summer is the hottest of all the seasons, keep all of your guests from the little ones to older folks cool and quenched with delightfully unique non-alcoholic drinks. Read on for summertime wedding drink ideas for all ages.

Lemonade with a Twist

Share a traditional summer drink favorite at your wedding reception, lemonade. Featuring a sweet and tart taste, lemonade reigns as a popular summer refreshment. The basic ingredients consist of lemon juice, water and sugar. Make your lemonade as unique as your wedding by giving it a signature flavorful twist. Inspired lemonade combinations include strawberry lemonade, raspberry lemonade or lime lemonade. For a vintage touch, serve your lemonade in mason jars from an old-fashioned lemonade stand.

Creative Iced Teas

Sit back and relax as you sip on iced tea while enjoying the festivities of your wedding reception. Originating from ancient china, the iced version of tea is a more recent innovation. The most common types of tea include black teas, green teas, white teas and herbal or root teas. Get creative with your iced teas such as serving honey mint sweet tea or jasmine lime tea. Make ice cubes of tea to enhance flavor and avoid dilution.

Delight in the effervescent refreshment of sparkling water, a type of carbonated drink distinguished by fizzy bubbles. Sparkling water may be augmented with a variety of flavors such as pineapple, blueberry, lime, cherry, strawberry, mandarin orange, coconut, peach, cucumber, fennel, blackberry, kiwi, raspberry, watermelon, cantaloupe or honeydew. Mix and match flavors for more novelty and uniqueness. Garnish each glass with a slice orange or lime or float a single cherry on top. Mineral water makes a great substitute for sparkling water.

Innovative Frozen Concoctions

Treat your wedding guests to icy cold drinks by renting a frozen drink machine for your reception. Serve up an array of frozen concoctions perfect for a hot sweltering summer day. From milkshakes and smoothies to flavored ice drinks the possibilities are endless. Try fun flavors such as vanilla and peach, crème de menthe and dark chocolate or pineapple and orange. Set up a snow cone bar, for a fun frozen summer treat for everyone.
