We love these little pre-mixed cocktail bottles - they're so much more elegant, tasty and stylish than nightclub alcopops. There are four classic flavours in the West Eleven range: Mojito, Elderflower Collins, Pomegranate Cosmo and Passion Fruit Mai Tai, and they taste completely delicious and authentic (we've tried all of them!).
Their founder's inspiration came from a disappointing lack of freshly-made cocktails on board a long haul flight, so he got in touch with the Met Bar's mixologist Ben Reed to create the four recipes using the best ingredients possible (from Caribbean rum to elderflower essence from English hedgerows).
We think they'll make a brilliant reception drink, especially if you can't afford or don't want a proper cocktail bar with waiters, or if you're getting married at home and buying in all your own drink. All you need is a few metal buckets (avauilable on Amazon) with lots of ice (have it delivered by www.theicebox.com) dotted around your reception area for guests to help themselves to - and don't forget to tie a bottle opener with string to the bucket handle!
