KEEPING SPIRITS UP AT A DRY DESTINATION WEDDING IN GOA

Updated: Mar 29

Perhaps your family is conservative, religious or simply doesn’t consume alcohol. Or you want to slash the costs that come with serving alcohol. There can be numerous reasons why you don’t want booze at your destination wedding in Goa. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have to avoid the fun that comes with serving beautiful beverages.


WHY HAVE A BOOZELESS BAR

Because your options with décor are still limitless, mocktails are also fun and you can get ultra creative! There’s no reason to stay boring with table service of fizzy carbonated beverages and nimbu paani at your destination wedding in Goa. Go all out on bar-style décor - think floral arrangements, quirky hashtags, chalkboard menus, or full-on desi-themed colour. The best wedding decorators in Goa have innumerable options for all kinds of settings.

MAGICAL MOCKTAILS

Make things colourful and interesting with custom-created non-alcoholic cocktails. Top bar services for weddings in Goa do not restrict themselves to boozy setups. Get inspired by popular cocktails and mix them up with seasonal fruit pressed fresh at the counter. Goa is blessed abundantly with organic local fruit such as mango, chikoo, pineapple, guava, and more, but you can get creative with mocktails made with jamun, jackfruit, love apples, and cashew.

NON-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

For the guests who do drink alcohol, you can offer non-alcoholic beers, spirits, and wines. Some of the biggest beer brands available in India, from Kingfisher and Budweiser to Bira, Miller, and Amstel offer non-alcoholic variants that taste just like the real thing. But you don’t have to stop at just beer. You can serve non-alcoholic gin and tonic, non-alcoholic rum and cola, or interesting options such as kombucha cocktails. Around the world, non-alcoholic wine is growing popular as are options for bourbon, rum, gin, and whiskey.

GET YOUR GLASSWARE RIGHT

It’s important that all your guests enjoy their beverages, even those who drink alcohol. So get your preferred bar services in Goa to set you up with glassware appropriate for your beverage menu. Cider can go in a beer glass, a margarita mocktail in a margarita glass, highball glasses for booze-free gin and tonic, and so on.

MAIN SQUEEZE

Avoid the typical tetra pack juice that’s common on supermarket shelves. After all, this is your destination wedding in Goa! These often contain added sugar and can take away from the classiness of a wedding. Get your appointed bar services in Goa to freshly squeezed juice at the refreshment station or dry bar. If you like, you can add bowls of fruit, herbs, olives, and cucumbers that guests can add to their drinks.

FLAIR BARTENDING

Bring attention to your bar by roping in flair bartenders. No, they don’t restrict their talents to alcoholic beverages. There’ll be bottles flying through the air, tricks with ice, and an entertaining show all night as your guests get eager to order from your curated selection of non-alcoholic beverages. They won’t miss the booze and they’ll surely have their spirits up at your destination wedding in Goa!
