Hosting a Cocktail Party Like a Pro: Tips for Entertaining with Style

Throwing a cocktail party is an art form, a delightful blend of good company, delectable drinks, and a sophisticated ambiance. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply enjoying the pleasures of good conversation and excellent cocktails, hosting a successful cocktail party requires careful planning and a touch of flair. Here are some expert tips to help you entertain with style and make your cocktail party a night to remember.

Curating your Cocktail Menu

Creating the perfect menu is essential for a successful Cocktail Party. Try to choose a few cocktails that will please your guests, we recommend these classics:

  • Classic Martini: Gin or vodka, dry vermouth, garnished with an olive or lemon twist.
  • Old Fashioned: Bourbon or rye, sugar, bitters, garnished with an orange peel.
  • Mojito: White rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint.

If classic is not your style, branch out and create some fun and unique cocktails that encompass your style. A few things to consider when branching out from the classic:

  • Utilize Fun Glassware: Check out HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, and Walmart to find inexpensive and unique glassware
  • Don’t be Afraid of Adding Color: In cocktail curation, there are many ways you can incorporate color into your menu. Using Grenadine, for example, can turn your orange drink into a green drink, and adds a splash of red to a simple clear drink.
  • Incorporate Garnishes: A simple lemon wheel, or fresh herbs can elevate a cocktail like never before.

With these tips, you will be the “hostess with the most-est”!
