As Your Signature Cocktail

require is glasses, ice and lots of bottles of our Blood Orange Mimosa and Tropical Sangria
ready-made cocktails. For a little something extra, create a sangria bar. A selection of seasonal fresh fruit allows guests to personalize their drink. They will love the delicious taste of a real cocktail, while you are able to host worry free!

Served Frozen

On warm summer days next to the pool there’s nothing better that a refreshing treat. We suggest serving the cocktails over ice to bring out their bright, fresh fruit flavors – but why not as ice too! Revelist came up with the perfect summer treat, sangria popsicles. These adult-friendly treats can be eaten alone, or use them in place of ice cubes in your glass of non-frozen sangria.

Adding a little extra something to your presentation will make all the difference at your summer parties. Guests are sure to notice the effort put in to a carefully cut lime peel, or a glass chilled in the freezer. Another easy but exquisite party idea, dress up simple ice cubes by freezing fresh fruit and herbs inside them. As they melt they’ll add supplementary flavors to the drink!

Go All In With a ThemeLZF_Bloggers-Banquet_139

Whether you’re aiming for elegant Garden Party or lively Fiesta, choosing a theme for your event is a great way to start planning. Every aspect from décor to music and of course refreshments should fit together into a single seamless experience. The Blood Orange Mimosa is an excellent, light choice for a Garden Party, with its bright citrus notes and sparkling wine. For a Fiesta try the Sangria. Made with premium red wine and real organic fruit juices, our Tropical Sangria is an amazing explosion of flavor and can be paired with tapas or tacos. Add a piñata and you’re ready to go.
