    either spiced rum and coke (most likely) or baileys on the rocks (usually I do this when I’m in the mood for “dessert”)

    Champagne, I love bubbles. I suspect you do too. You should serve pink champagne at your wedding.

    If I like the signature drink I get that, if it’s not something I would normally like I get my usual Kettle Soda.

    Vodka is the only alcohol (besides beer) that doesn’t make me sick, so I’d go for that. Plus I think its the most versatile.

    I voted Gin and Tonic because I’m loving it at the moment, but honestly, it depends on what I’m in the mood for at the time – I drink them all.

    For a liquor based drink, I’d have a cranberry vodka, and Darling Husband would have a G&T.  I usually go for a lovely Chardonnay, though.

    Working in a bar, popular choices for occassions seem to be spiced rum and coke or other mixers, Gin and Tonic, vodka and shots like Jagermeister (and red bull) and Tequila.

    Beer and wine are good staples and whisky for the older chaps.

    I don’t like much alcohol (wine, vodka, whisky) but fruity cider is nice and malibu with lemonade has a sweet taste. So I would go for that. But after having two alcoholic drinks, I would probably go for orange or mango juice.

    We had a full open bar at our wedding and we did a “buy back” deal with the liquor store where we kept what was open and returned the rest. I later received an invoice showing what people actually consumed and it was a surprise to me!

    A couple of notes:

    • Our guests drank all the Glenlivet (I don’t even drink this, so I had no idea it would be so popular!)
    • The vodka (which I do and did drink :)) (Grey Goose) was less popular than I would have thought
    • No one drank the tequila
    • We didn’t have a signature cocktail, so we had wine and beer ready to go when the cocktail hour started so that people who wanted that wouldn’t have to wait in a long line at the bar. We had Long Trail Ale as one of the beers and it was a HUGE hit.

    I hope this was (maybe) helpful!

    Usually, I’ll just get white wine or a beer, but if I get a mixed drink, I’ll probably go for a vodka tonic or a gin & tonic.

    I’d drink white or red wine, vodka cranberry, codka gimlets, or… who am I kidding. I would drink most fruity mixed drinks at a wedding as long as they did not involved Whiskey. 🙂

    I usually go for wine, but if wine isn’t available I will go with vodka
