After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry said “I do” at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018, they celebrated their marriage at a private reception at Frogmore House. The party was filled with dancing, A-list appearances, and even a fireworks show. Now, five years after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot, we’re finding out even more details from the event. Thanks to an episode of Channel 5’s Kensington & Chelsea: The Royal Borough, we finally know a pivotal detail about the pair’s reception menu: their signature cocktails.

According to the new television program, which first aired on August 24, 2023, Harry and Meghan served two "his" and "hers" specialty drinks at their party—and gave each of their beverages a personal name. The groom’s drink of choice, dubbed “Who You Calling Ginger?,” was a mix of tequila, lemongrass, ginger, and Kaffir lime leaf; it was a reference to Harry’s red hair. The bride's refreshment was a concoction made with tequila, lime, pineapple, coriander, and Habanero, which she named “California Dreamin’” in honor of her birthplace.

Another boozy treat that held a special connection to Harry’s upbringing also made an appearance at the reception. According to Hello!, the couple’s guests snacked on wine gummies made from the port royals drank at Harry’s christening in 1984. That port was sipped on and shared by the key figures in Harry’s childhood, including his mother, Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II, and Prince Phillip—making the gummies a particularly special big-day detail.

The food that Meghan and Harry selected for their menu also reflected the couple. Mark Mosimann, the managing director of Mosimann’s (the dining club that prepared the event’s dinner), discussed how chef Clare Smyth created a menu based on Meghan’s favorite dishes from the restaurant. Hello! reports that the menu included potato and roe as a starter, roast chicken for the main entrée, and a strawberry and lemon verbena for dessert.

In addition to a personalized menu, the couple’s 200 guests spent a lot of time on the dance floor. Idris Elba brought the energy as the DJ; he created a killer soundtrack with songs such as “Still D.R.E.” by Dr. Dre—a direct request from Meghan—and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston. Harry and Meghan’s first dance song, “Land of 1000 Dances” by Wilson Pickett, was also a hit, especially for Meghan, who described the moment as “just spinning like a whirlwind” in the couple’s Harry & Meghan Netflix docuseries. George Clooney also played the role as bartender, while publications reported that Serena Williams played a game of beer pong.

For the festivities, Meghan changed into a bespoke Stella McCartney gown with a halter neck and a backless design. She paired the ensemble with baby blue Aquazzura heels and Princess Diana’s Asprey aquamarine ring. Some of the other celebrities also revamped their wardrobe for the reception. Williams sported a colorful Valentino gown, while Priyanka Chopra opted for a stunning Dior design.
