You have already chosen the menu for your Quinceanera, but have you thought about the drinks? Since a Quinceanera is mainly a party for teens, alcoholic beverages are restricted only to adults.
However, that does not mean you and your friends can’t enjoy refreshing and delicious cocktails or drinks during the party time.
Forget about serving just plain water or soda, those are in the past, nowadays there is a wide variety of non-alcoholic drinks that besides looking fabulous they are yummy and fresh.
Maybe your parents decide to serve some alcoholic beverages for adults, so let them deal with that and meanwhile you should focus on drinks to delight your guests.
Ask your caterer service if they can provide this kind of drinks or you can also ask the manager of the hall or place where your party is taking place.
Every day is more common to see alcohol free receptions and parties so it won’t be a problem getting somebody who prepares and serves these drinks.
Here are some options of cocktails and soft drinks for your Quinceanera:
Water: There should always be water, either bottled, flavored (very common at Latin parties) or mineral.
There are some people who don’t like sweet drinks and just prefer drinking water.
