How Wedding Bartenders Can Transform Your Wedding

How Wedding Bartenders Can Transform Your Wedding

When trying to create just the right atmosphere for your wedding guests, it is important to make sure that all your guests are given the “VIP treatment” that they deserve. While serving cocktails seems like a no-brainer, it actually requires a lot of attention to detail.

This is because even though a majority of Lebanese catering companies have excellent waiters that know exactly how to serve everyone in the wedding party, they just do not have the skills of a professional bartender. Professional bartenders do much more than just serve cocktails.

If you hire professional wedding bartenders you do not need to worry about keeping your guests busy and entertained, leave it up to the bartender. Here is a list of benefits that you will enjoy when you hire a wedding bartender.

A Variety of Cocktails

The first advantage that you get by hiring a professional wedding bartender is that your guests can enjoy various cocktails that have been created and mixed especially for them. The menu of wedding cocktails will surely not be a boring one if you have a wedding bar service present at your event.

 

Professionalism

You will find plenty of skilled professionals when you choose bartending services for wedding events. Not only are these professionals extremely good at making a variety of cocktails in the most unique way possible, they are also highly professional and make sure all your guests are served the right way. They do not let crowd bother them and serve them in a systemized way. By making the decision for a wedding cocktail bar hire, make sure no one in your guest list is neglected when it comes to drinks and entertainment.

 

Entertainment

Another advantage that comes from hiring bartending services for wedding events is simple – your guest will not be bored – professional bartenders are skilled with the art of drink making – it is actually quite mesmerizing.  Your guests can also have a good time while enjoying the immaculate service given and the ability of these professionals to put on a show for the guests. A wedding bartender is not merely a server but also a unique attraction for the guests. Your guests will have a lot of fun observing how they mix and create cocktails while showing off their unique skills.

 

Safety

The last advantage will make you massively thank the wedding bar service. Along with serving and entertaining your guests, the wedding bartender will also make sure to keep track of each guest’s alcohol consumption. If they feel a particular has had enough to drink, they will suggest something lighter on the menu such as a mocktail. You do not have to worry about your guests having a bit too much if you have hired the right wedding bar service.

 

Bottom Line

So, if you want to incorporate that unique twist to your wedding and want your guests to remember the event for a long time to come, make sure you opt for bar catering for weddings. This new trend has completely transformed the way weddings take place for all the right reasons.

 

The Three Best Ramadan Drinks You Must Learn to Make in 2018

The Three Best Ramadan Drinks You Must Learn to Make in 2018

wedding-bartender-w855h425The holy month of Ramadan has come and is already half way done. From Suhoor (before the break of dawn) to Iftar (the sunset), Muslims all over the world and especially in Lebanon and Jordan have to avoid drinking and eating. This is an obligatory observation for Muslims if they don’t have any health issues. What makes Ramadan challenging this year is it has come during the hottest part of the year. Various South Asian and Middle Eastern countries are experiencing the hottest heat wave at this time of the year. Temperatures in Beirut or Amman for example are recording historical highs. Hunger is of only secondary importance, it is thirst and dehydration that have become the real challenges for most Muslims.
Ask a fasting person and they will tell you how their Iftar time is all about gulping one glass of water after another. It’s the best time to treat the fasting Muslims with some delicious, thirst-quenching, and soul-satisfying Ramadan drinks. Here are three of the best.

The Top Three Ramadan Drinks Recipes

1. Jallab

It is one of the most popular summer drinks in the Middle East, and also one of the most satisfying ones. The main ingredient in the drink is molasses obtained from grapes. Combine that with chilled water, some ice cubes, and dates, and you have the perfect jallab drink ready for drinking. Here is the complete recipe.

Ingredients

• Jallab Syrup (three tablespoons)
• Pine nuts (one tablespoon)
• Golden raisins (one tablespoon)
• Crushed ice (as much as you like)

Method

Take a big glass of water and put jallab syrup in it. Fill the glass with water until it is nearly full. Mix the two ingredients so their tastes blend. Once you have mixed water and jallab syrup, add crushed ice. Use as much ice as satisfied you, but be sure not to dilute the drink so much that it tastes bland. After putting in crushed ice, add pine nuts and raisins on top of the drink. Take sips from the glass at Iftar time and thank God for the amazing flavors.
Note: The ingredients are suitable for one glass of jallab. Preparation should only take five minutes at maximum. You can also add a few drops of rose water to the drink for some more fragrance and refreshing effect.

2. Amar el Din

This is yet another delicious summer drink that becomes more common in Jordan and Lebanon during the month of Ramadan. It is made from fresh apricots so it has a thick texture. Not only is it delicious to drink but the fresh ingredients and fruits in it making it highly nutrient and energetic as well.

Ingredients

• Dried apricot paste (200 grams)
• White sugar (three tablespoons)
• Water (two cups)
• Orange blossom water (half teaspoon)
• Pure orange juice (one cup)

Method

Make long strips from the dried apricot paste using a sharp knife or a pair of scissors. Cut them even more to get very small pieces. This will make it easy to dissolve them when preparing the drink. Put the small pieces of dried apricot paste in a deep bowl. Mix sugar and water with the paste and start warming on the stove. Keep the heat to medium level at first while mixing the ingredients. Once the ingredients are in, let the mix boil. Keep up with stirring while the mixture boils to make sure every flavor blends perfectly.
Take out the juice in a pitcher to refrigerate it or you can strain it first to get thin nectar. It tastes best if you do not strain it and keep the thick grainy texture intact. Put the juice in the refrigerator for some time for it to taste its best. To make the drink more refreshing and relishing the essence of Ramadan, mix a few drops of rosewater while serving. You can also add a few tablespoons of orange juice at the time of serving to add a new dimension to the taste of the juice.
Note: Traditionally, there is not much garnishing and decoration required. If you want to make the drink presentable, just place a few leaves of mint on top.

3. Tamer Hindi

This is yet another refreshing drink that Lebanese and Jordanians love to enjoy during summers, and more specifically during Ramadan. You are going to love this drink due to the fact that tamarind has a unique refreshing quality.

Ingredients

• Tamarind Paste (around 200 grams)
• Water (up to six cups)
• Sugar (around one and a half cup)

Method

Take six cups of water, put tamarind in it and leave it overnight. Add sugar to the paste the next day and set it on stove for up to five minutes. Scoop out any foam that forms during the boiling process. Take it off the stove and give half an hour for it to cool down. Use a fine piece of cloth to strain the liquid in a bowl or jug. Store the nectar in refrigerator and mix water to taste every time you serve it. The more water you add, the less pungent the taste.

In the End

These are some of the most popular drinks in the Middle East and their popularity increases even more during Ramadan because they all have a refreshing taste. The good thing is that you can prepare these drinks even if you don’t live in lebanon or in Jordan because there are no rare ingredients used in their making. Now that you know how to prepare Tamer Hindi, Amer el Din, and Jallab, treat your family with one of them when you still have a few days of Ramadan at hand.
