What's the procedure for sheva brachot if there is no minyan?

A Minyan must be present in order to recite the sheva brachot. If there is no minyan, only the last blessing of the sheva brachot, the Asher Barah blessing, is recited over a cup of wine—and this, too, provided that there are three adult men (a “mezuman”) present.
