When Meghan and Harry marry. With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding less than a day away, royal family fans and devoted Suits viewers are currently adding the finishing touches to their viewing parties and more. Add some flavor to your early morning events with these celebratory cocktails made especially for the 2018 Royal Wedding.

“As far as the menu goes, I would serve famous British treats like Banoffee Pie, Eton Mess, Bakewell Tart, Battenberg Cake and my personal favorite: Jam Roly-Poly,” celebrity wedding planner Mikie Russo tells The Knot. “Plus, English tea, prosecco, rosé and champagne.”

The St-Germain Elderflower Spritz

The couple has opted for a lemon elderflower cake comprised topped by buttercream and fresh flowers. If you and your friends want a taste of this refreshing confection, opt for a delightful beverage version crafted for The Knot by St-Germain. The elderflower liqueur is made from 1,000 elderflower blossoms handpicked in the spring. “Its unique harvest process reminds us of savoring and living in the moment, celebrating life’s joyful occasions, much like the Royal Wedding,” says brand ambassador Camille Ralph Vidal. “To commemorate their love, the Royal couple has chosen a lemon elderflower cake by Pastry Chef, Claire Ptak, paired beautifully with the St-Germain Spritz.”
