Do I have a nonalcoholic, kid-friendly, super-fun reception idea for YOU. Rachael and Chris had a tea-party themed wedding, but they kicked things up a notch with a nonboozy bar at their reception. Specifically, an Italian soda bar! I'll let Rachael explain:
At first people were completely unsure about how to make an Italian soda. It was like watching people experiment in a science lab. First too much syrup, then not enough syrup, then a flavor that was supposed to go with the coffee (such as English Toffee) that didn't make for a very tasty Italian soda. Eventually, my dad figured out the proper ratio and taught two of my very best guy friends how to be the bar keepers. By the end of the afternoon, they were making drinks for everyone. A little advice: put up an instruction sign if you decide to do something similar! -Rachael
Yo, I got your instructions right here.
1-2 oz flavored Torani syrup
8 oz sparkling water or club soda
1 oz half-and-half (optional)
Fill a glass half full with crushed ice.
Add syrup(s) of your choice and sparkling water. Stir.
Float the half-and-half on top of the drink.
