Customized Bottled Cocktails

Go beyond basic beer with bottled and customized cocktails, which have been popping up at bars everywhere. They’ve gotten us thinking that offering tall, cool ones could be a refreshing way to personalize your drinks and get them in hand, fast, at your celebration. Pass them out post-vows, or distribute them during the cocktail hour.
