Copied from another site:

Strawberry Basil Margaritasmakes 1 pitcher, or about 8 servings

1 can (12 ounces) frozen limeade concentrate
10 strawberries (or 12 if you’re using smaller ones from the farmer’s market or your backyard.)
8 basil leaves
2 to 2 1/2 cups tequila (gold or silver)

Empty the limeade concentrate into a pitcher. Add 2 1/2 cans of water and 1 1/2 (18 ounces, or 2 1/4 cups) cans of tequila (or a bit less, if you don’t want your drinks to be quite as strong).

Hull the strawberries, slice lengthwise, and add to the pitcher. Crumple the basil a little in your hands (this will help the basil flavor release into the drink) and add it to the pitcher, too. Place the pitcher, covered, in the fridge overnight, or for at least four hours.

When you remove the pitcher from the fridge, your margaritas will be a lovely pale pink color. Now all you have to do is serve them and wait for the compliments to pour in.

I’m a big fan of using frozen strawberries in drinks/punches because as they thaw, they infuse strawberry flavor and keep things cold.  However, they don’t look too pretty. 

Since you are getting married in April, I’d recommend using berries to capture that spring flavor.

@Misscandice8907:  We got married in the fall, but we still had a spring-ish signature cocktail that people were raving about. And it was ridiculously simple. How simple, you ask?

2 parts Simply Lemonade with Raspberry
1 part Vodka
2 fresh raspberries

Voila!
Guests freaking loved it. I called it a Raspberry Lemon Drop, but you can call it a blushing bride or whatever. This is what it looked like served.

We served lemon drops and they were a HUGE HUGE hit. Definitely something to consider!

Emeril’s limoncello champagne punch. Sooooo delicious. So so so good. It definitely packs a punch but tastes great. Sweet without being too sweet. I like to make it with frozen berries or pomegranate seeds in it for color, or freeze lemon slices in ice cubes. (Sometimes I try to channel Martha. Embarassed )
