Mix Up A Holiday Cocktail Party!

This holiday season, invite your friends over for a simple and fun holiday cocktail party! Check out our list of appetizer and cocktail recipes for ideas on what to serve!

Hello! I hope everyone is having great holiday seasons. While the holidays are all about food and feasting, they're also about fun! That's why I decided to throw a holiday cocktail party this week. I have expanded the categories of appetizers and beverages for this week's party because appetizers and drinks are what a cocktail party is all about! You can also turn your party into a cocktail or appetizer potluck if easier! Have fun!

Happy Holidays!

Presentation Pointers:

1. Create a space in your main room for everyone to mingle. Push back couches or tables to give people room to chat while enjoying their cocktails.

2. Serve your appetizers on platters to give your party a classy touch. To go that extra mile, pass the platters around the room like they do at a cocktail hour.

3. Make sure the focus of your party is on the appetizers and the cocktails. Remember: that's what your guests are there for!
