We’ve talked white party decor, fashion and food, now let’s talk drinks! Since we were holding the white party in a public park, where no alcohol is *technically* allowed, I wanted to create a virgin cocktail. After spotting white ginger beer, I knew just what to serve: Mocktail Mules (a.k.a. virgin Moscow Mules)!
Despite having beer in its name, ginger beer is non-alcoholic and I have to say this particular ginger beer is SO delicious and sharp, it could easily be sipped on its own. But add freshly squeezed lime juice and you have a rave-worthy virgin cocktail. (Tip: In true Gatsby form, we kept flasks filled with vodka on hand for those who desired a real Moscow Mule Shhh….don’t tell!.)
In addition, mini bottles of lemon Pellegrino were offered by way of swan planters fashioned as drink buckets. (Note: Swans have holes in the bottoms, so be sure to set on grass or an area you don’t mind getting wet.)
Rows of Acqua Panna were refreshing while keeping with the white party theme.
Drinks were served in mason jars or faux crystal champagne glasses.
