Happy Tuesday! EventLucky is back to share another event planning tip with you! I hope you enjoy-- and I would love to hear from you!
I love it when people match a drink to the decor of a party. Whether a signature cocktail or a few thoughtful choices, it shows that the host took the time to consider her guests preferences while making stylish choices. And, as a host, it can manage your costs. Good deal, all round!
If you love the look- and taste-- of martinis Martha had a great suggestion of using more curved glasses with a stem. Kinda of fun and retro, and less dangerous for spills.
For daytime or more intimate evening events, its nice to have a signature drink deconstructed for the most options. For an example, if you wanted to have this Pomegranate and Citrus drink, you could have pitchers of both juices, as well as seltzer and the liquor of your choice (champagne, vodka, or rum). Even if the signature drink is most dramatic and beautiful, guests can make a drink that best appeals to them.
You can spruce up your drinks by adding spice (like saffron and vanilla), infuse drinks with tea, or infusing your vodka. Or, the easiest-- adding fresh herbs. This spring of mint makes this cranberry drink special.
Lastly, decorating the bar--
or the glasses can create a party atmosphere. Paper butterflies, parasols or ribbons make these drinks so festive.
What are your favorite drinks for a party? Do you choose by color or taste?
See you next Tuesday! xoxo EventLucky
