 Parties are a great way to entertain friends and family during the holidays. A festive holiday cocktail party includes not only fabulous cocktails, but a nice spread of appetizers and desserts, holiday music and decor. Here are 6 tips for hosting a holiday cocktail party:

1. For less stress on the hostess, hire or assign a bartender for the evening. If hiring someone is not an option, try setting up a drink station with glasses, napkins, stirrers, ice, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Guests can then help themselves to their drink of choice!

2. Decide on a menu. For smaller cocktail parties, limit the menu to a small variety of appetizers, finger foods and desserts. 

3. Decide on a theme or color palette. If you don’t want to decorate your space with the traditional red and green holiday decor, try thinking outside of the box and do a winter wonderland theme with icy blues, whites and silvers.

4. Set up a nice appetizer and dessert table for guests. I like to keep the two tables separate. Guest can then help themselves to your selection of mouth-watering appetizers and delicious desserts.

5. Choose a signature drink or cocktail like the Bud Light Lime Cran-Brrr-Rita. Serve in a Tom Collins glass and garnish with a lime for the perfect holiday drink! Bud Light Lime Cran-Brrr-Rita is a wonderful holiday drink to share with any crowd and toast to the holiday season. It’s a fabulous solution for a festive holiday drink to serve to guests and pair with your party spread. Whether you are gathering with family or hosting a seasonal party with friends, this will definitely make it a hit!

6. Set the scene! Dim the lights, light some candles, turn up the holiday tunes, and get ready to party!
