What if you wanted to really make your event special by serving up a few special cocktails? Everyone's got their own preference when it comes to enjoying a drink. The simplest ones to please are the wine and beer drinkers. Over the years I've come across some innovative ways hosts have made their party stand out and enjoyable.
One way to come up with a few cocktail ideas is to figure out if you want your party to have a theme. Maybe it's a tropical theme so you might serve a few featured cocktails that have an island feel to them. The choice of music also makes a difference. Perhaps you want to use the change in seasons to make your theme. Christmas is a great time to serve up cocktails that have a feeling of warmth and cheer.
Make sure the ingredients you need are readily available and not too expensive if you are planning on making a large amount. Also, consider making cocktails in large batches and have them out in punch bowls so people can serve themselves. That frees you up to mix and mingle with your guests.
