Presentation Pointers:
1. For a bit of fun, let everyone invent a cocktail and award a prize for the best creation!
2. Make large pitchers of different cocktails before the partygoers arrive.  It will keep you from running to the kitchen to mix a new drink every time someone’s glass is empty.
3. Have your guests arrive in black tie attire to make your evening feel extra elegant.
