When organizing a wedding reception you want your day to be as unique and as special as the next; and nothing says rememberable like a unique cocktail! Wine is meant for dinner, and drinks aren’t commonly handed out after dinner. A welcome drink it has to be. Mimosas are last year’s news and too tacky, but plain sparkling wine is, well, just plain boring!
You set upon the quest on finding a welcome cocktail in earnest but your requirements seem to be a tall order: something that’ll be enjoyed by everyone from your best mate to your grandma, something that will get them all in the groove, something that will be be bubbly as well as highly memorable and refreshing. You talk to your friends and your local bartenders who offer you solutions but none quite match up to what you’re looking for.
Finally, after asking the internet for help, one bartender throws you this cocktail. You’re skeptical because it contains Jägermeister -who wants that that early in the day!- but you try it as the bartender comes highly recommended and BOOM! That’s it. That’s the one and all your problems are solved and the perfect beginning to your perfect day is set!

Why This Cocktail Works
Rich chocolate and coffee along with a slight herbal element give way to the dry factor of the cava, before the honey like notes of all four ingredients settle on the palette; dancing back and forth with the dryness brought forth by the cava and Bomani. The nose is full of chocolate and this beverage is all the more moreish for it.
