You made it through the ceremony, now it’s time to get the party started. Where are you headed? The cocktail hour, of course. The Breakers recently added a fun item to cocktail hour: A tequila bar!

The Breakers tequila bar
The tequila bar: The Breakers has a selection of more than 20 different specialty tequilas for you to choose from. Our collection also includes premium, aged and small batch tequila — some you can’t even buy in the liquor store. Not a tequila fan? Don’t fret. If you can dream it, The Breakers can make it happen.

A special alcoholic (or non alcoholic) bar like The Breakers tequila bar can bring pizzazz and excitement, especially if your wedding theme is incorporated into the cocktail hour.

Other fun ideas:

  • Rename a classic cocktail: Take the Sex on the Beach drink and put your own spin on it. Love Mojitos? Why not name it after yourself. Hey, it is your special day after all.
  • Serve something exotic: Choose a drink your guests don’t often see. This can be a homemade recipe or a fancy drink you used to sip on special occasions. Adding a fun garnish and some fruit can also light up cocktail hour.
  • Be sentimental: Offer your guests a drink that means something to you. Maybe it’s what you drank on your first date or the night you got engaged. For some couples, just sharing their favorite drink is memorable and exciting.
