    I chose vodka lemonade because I don’t like whiskey! However some people might not like vodka… could you have two choices?

    I think I vote for the vodka lemonaid.  I agree with your reasoning behind it.  Is there a reason why you wouldn’t mix it all up (alcohol included) before the wedding?  That way there is nothing the guests have to mix?

    Lemonade sounds like the perfect summer drink, and I think the lemonade with vodka will be more universal for guests who may not like whiskey.

    I would prefer something without sugar.. We are doing a martini bar and have some sweet and some ‘traditional’ like with dry with olives and a saketini thrown in so people who don’t want a fruity/sweet drink have an option.

    If you’re planning on mixing the base and then having your guests add the alcohol, why don’t you do both the vodka lemonade and lynchburg lemonade, since they have the same base?  You would still be purchasing the same amount of alcohol (half of each) and you’d be able to offer two signature cocktails ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love, love, love the vodka lemonade idea!!  It’s the perfect drink!

    Who will be making/serving the drinks?

    If you need to make it beforehand – the lemonade is the perfect option.

    You should check out Mrs Cherry Pies recap posts.  She did some homebrews for her rustic wedding that were obviously delicious since they ran out!

    I voted for Lynchburg Lemondade. I understand that some people don’t like whiskey, but to me vodka and lemonade reminds me of what we used to mix up in college for parties. If you do end up going with the vodka lemonade, you could come up with a cute name for it to make it more special.

    How about vodka and white cranberry juice (so you don’t have to worry about spillage)? It also eliminates @jacqi concern about “college”, although I do love me a vodka lemonade.

    I also enjoy vodka lemonade with flavored vodkas (think Three Olives Cherry)

    One of my FAVORITE cocktails is a Crum Bubbly–lemonade, gin, and sprite. It’s yummy.

    Otherwise i vote for the mojito! You could do the lemonade and add strawberries or strawberry syrup, too!!! Flavored lemonades are so damn fancy…blackberry is SO good
