One of my clients is famous for always having a lollipop popped in her mouth. Thinking about what would be a great signature cocktail for her beach wedding, I thought about using lollipops as stir sticks in a gin and tonic. The sugary sweetness is a nice contrast to the tartness of the gin and tonic (a very refreshing drink for a summer wedding). A lollipop submerged into a drink makes for a great visual and is a lot of fun to drink (eat?). Should make for some great photo ops! For added points, choose lollipops in your wedding colours. Great fun and easy on the pocketbook to boot 😉
