    I do like entertaining and my favorite thing is to do theme parties. I customize my food, drinks and decorations/decor around a theme and everyone really enjoys it….I just try not to get too hokey!

  • So if I had one cocktail of each on this post, that wouldn’t make me an alcoholic right?

    And I agree with Lana – you should totally do an e-book on cocktails!

    When I throw parties, I make them festive by making the prettiest desserts possible, and using the nicest China pattern I have on hand, unless the party gets too big. Then I’ll just use paper plates.

  • To set the mood for a festive party it’s all about music for me, so I play with my playlists a bit before and create a special one for each party!

  • Conversation cards are a great way for people to get to know each other. Put a fun question on each card and people have to talk about their life then.

    Cocktails are always the best way to make a party more festive. Its fun finding just the right recipe to serve at the party and even better when the cocktail is a hit with the guests.

  • Don’t let the fear of flavor boredom impact your next gathering. Serve cranberry in a way that everyone will enjoy: cocktails! The fruit makes a great beverage base—and while everyone is used to it in Cosmos (snooze), it can spice up a number of other exciting drinks at a holiday party.

    That Madras looks delicious! The cocktails look beautiful!

  • Ironically, I was just looking at my vat of limoncello we made last year and wondering what the French toast to do with it other than just sip away (that’s a lot of sipping). Your idea for the Sgroppino is FANTASTIC – totally using that. Except I have no idea how to pronounce it. :)
    The madras looks pretty tasty, too! :)

  • I don’t know what cocktail I would choose! The played-with Sgroppino can be a dessert ( I need to eliminate, to make room:)
    Seriously, these are some great drinks! Are you going to do an e-book on cocktails? It would be fun!
