Anyway. The food was good, the ceremony was beautiful, and the people were glowing. Partially with drunkenness, but whatever. In fact, the bartender ran out of soda. So instead of a vodka and soda, I ended up with a vodka Collins. It was great! Much better than the super-sweet drink I was expecting. So I spent all weekend trying to figure out where to get Collins mix, since it doesn't appear to be in stores anywhere. Today, I find out there's a reason or that. It's basically soda and lemon juice. So now I feel like an idiot, but at least I know how to make the drink I like.
