8 Must Beverages in a Summer Wedding Menu
Scorching and sultry, no we are not describing a Bollywood actress; we are talking about intense summer heat. This is one of the biggest reasons why people avoid a summer wedding. Braving the hot and humid summer air is the only thing that guests dread about a summer wedding. So, if you are having a summer wedding, provide a refreshing respite to your guests with the help of these fun and cool beverages.

Miniature Golas
Full sized golas can be a little difficult to savour, for your guests. Besides, who would want to be stuck with one flavour? So, let your guests sample miniature golas in shot glasses, as you take your pheras.

Fun flavours: Move over kala-khatta and orange, gola makers now offer flavours like kokum gola, rabdi gola, chocolate gola, kacchi kairi and a lot more. You can even ask your caterer to create a signature gola for your marriage, mashing-up your and your partner’s favourite flavours.

Fun flavours: Try out peach, lemon, strawberry, raspberries and even ginger flavoured iced tea.

Cold coffee
You would not want coffee lovers to sulk while tea lovers sip on their delicious iced tea. Cold coffee is a summer favourite and surely no one would be able to keep their hands-off it.

Fun flavours: Cold coffee should be served in miniature glasses, so that your guests can try out its variations. Offer them a choice of toppings- chocolate syrup, marshmallows or premium ice creams. You can also serve spiced ice coffee with some orange rinds, or chilled espresso shots and so on.

Aam panna
How can you leave out the king of fruits while talking about summer beverages? Aam panna or fresh juice of raw green mangoes is an all time favourite.

Fun flavours: Aam panna is a classic and you really should not mess with it. But, serve it with interesting toppings like mint, basil and crunchy boondi.

There is nothing like a tall glass of lassi to cool you down during hot and humid summers. So, add it to your menu, especially if you are serving Indian cuisine to your guests.
Fun flavours: Mango lassi is such a passé, you need to serve your guests something different and exciting. Chocolate lassi, dry fruit lassi, honey, angoori lassi and even pina-colada lassi are the drinks you can serve.

Granita and Sorbet
Though traditionally served as desserts, both sorbet and granita make excellent summer coolers.

Fun flavours: Add a new dimension to your menu with pineapple, lime and ginger, chocolate and cherry, and butter milk sorbet with fresh fruits. You can try out tomato and basil, rose, lemon and watermelon flavours for granitas.

Though most famously served during Holi, thandai is a rich drink which you can serve at your wedding. Though, traditionally made with almonds and milk, you can always ask your caterers to tweak the recipe a little and serve something innovative at your wedding.

Fun flavours: Thandai is known for its bold flavours, so try variations like honey thandai, dry fruit thandhai, chocolate thandai, or kesar thandai.
