It’s party time!! You’ve sent out the invites, you’ve cleaned the house and decorated, you’ve planned the meal, but what about the beverages for the evening? Sure, you could put a few bottles on a table next to the two-liter bottles of sodas and mixers and call it a day. But you want to spice it up, make it memorable. Join us as we take you through a crash course on easy-to-do Holiday drinks that won’t make you the bartender for the party. These “plan ahead” adult beverages will take the angst out of hosting a gathering and allow you to enjoy company, relax, and have one of the best Holiday gatherings of the season!
