Running out of unique ideas for a supercharged summer celebration? Why not throw a swingin’ cocktail making party that will make your friends and guests request for another round? But before you bring out the booze and the bar tools, allow us first to give you a few tips to make sure your party will be a resounding success.
Set a Theme
What spells the difference between a cocktail making party that’s blah and one that can break the internet? The booze, of course. Serious organizing is key and knowing which liquors to serve (whether vodka, champagne, rum, etc.) will let you know which glassware and bar tools to prepare as well. And just in case, you didn’t know it yet, there is a reason why different cocktails are served in specific glasses.
Also, to help you plan the perfect cocktail event, here are a few suggestions on which bar tools to get.
Search for Recipes
When searching for unique cocktail recipes, forget boring mixes. Instead, make cocktail combinations that are delicious but bolder. Try searching on our website for great-tasting, classic cocktail recipes with a modern twist. For instance, if you wish to serve vodka cocktail recipes, our website has a lot of Moscow mule variations which can easily be done.
If you want quick access to drink and cocktail recipes, you can also download the Mixology app which is available on the Apple App Store. Here you can browse through and search for thousands of recipes and ingredients in various categories. You can also share recipes via email and social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. Don’t forget to print out the ingredients/preparation for each of your guests for a rollicking cocktail making fun.
What’s a party without food? A dreadful one, for sure. After all, you wouldn’t want your guests to drink their cocktails on an empty stomach. Prepare snacks that are good for a quick bite during breaks. Try this delicious and Antipasto Skewers recipe for the ultimate cocktail making party treat. Just add Mozzarella sticks (rolled into balls), heirloom cherry tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, Mediterranean olives, chopped red pepper, pepperoncini, and slices of Prosciutto into a skewer. Drizzle with olive oil, and aged Balsamic vinegar; and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Prep your Kitchen/Backyard
Finally, if you wish to set a festive mood for your party, make sure to create extra room where guests can freely move in and make their own cocktails. Whether you plan to set your party indoors or outdoors, don’t forget to add a fun and stylish touch to your kitchen or backyard with colorful decorations such as banners, balloons, etc.
Other Unique Party Ideas
Want to add more fun and games to your party? You can ask your guests to vote for their favorite cocktail and the most popular one gets to go home with a special gift.
Remember it’s not just about impressing your guests. More than the drinks or the food to be served at your party, the most important part of the celebration should be about your guests having a good time.
