Signature Wedding Craft Cocktail Idea

September 15th, 2016

Hand-crafted cocktails are lively additions to any event, and these liquid artisanal pleasures add a unique component to island weddings. 

Aruba’s reigning Iron Bartender, Danny van der Linden, shares a recipe for Lemonade Serenade, created for Liquid Craft Bar Services
 by Hollywood Smokehouse. This refreshing libation, with hints of fresh cucumber and ginger, is popular for catered beach wedding receptions.



  • 1 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice 
  • 1 oz. simple syrup 
  • 2 slices cucumber 
  • 2 oz. Tito’s Vodka 
  • Splash of Ginger club soda (or ginger beer) 
  • Fresh basil and lemon slice for garnish


  1. In a mixing glass, add all ingredients (except ginger soda and basil) and muddle.  
  2. Add crushed ice and shake.  
  3. Pour into a rocks glass or mason jar glass and top off with ginger soda or ginger beer. 
  4. Garnish with fresh basil and lemon slice.
  5. Lastly, drink and enjoy!

What our brides are saying

I am so thankful we had the opportunity to get married in Aruba and that so many of our friends and family made the trip there with us. I have always had a special love for Aruba, but now it is an even more meaningful and special place to me and my husband.
