Figuring out a great summer cocktail that the ladies will love but the men could enjoy is the subject of my wedding nightmares at the moment. I know, right? Make some punch, spike it and be done. For some reason though, I just can't leave it at that. We will be getting a keg of Propeller Bitter, Jack's favourite, and I want the cocktail to be just as impressive.
My goal is to have a refreshing cocktail that involves minimal prep [for my sake as well as our lovely bartender friend] and therefore minimal ingredients. I've found a couple potential recipes but who are the time, or budget, to test them all out?! Any of these sound just smashing to you? Any ideas of your own you think I should hear? Any family recipes that could save the day?
