Yes, it's true YOU can make exotic and unusual party cocktails right in your own home and host an unforgettable cocktail party.
Lisa from Cupcake Creations offered to share some of her favorite party cocktail recipes and tips right here at Diva Girl Parties and Stuff. How lucky are we?
One suggestion from me -- you MUST serve a few of her delicious cupcake creations at your party. Mmmm! The chocolate mint cupcakes are absolutely divine.
I personally love displaying cupcakes on tiered serving platters or even baking them up as mini bite size servings just to change it up from time to time. Either way, they're a great match for Lisa's cocktail recipes and party ideas.
Cocktail parties are the epitome of elegance and style. Learning the fine art of preparing and serving exotic cocktails can have a magical effect on your fancy drinks repertoire as well as your reputation for hosting the best cocktail parties ever.
Spend some time practicing the skill of blending different ingredients in varying proportions and combinations so that you get cocktails that look colorfully exotic and taste just as good.
Acquire the skill of preparing multi-layered, multi-colored cocktails. They add a certain zing to your party that no other cocktail can. All you need are imagination and a steady hand as well as an assortment of beverages in contrasting colors and varying weights.
Pouring every layer slowly over the back of a spoon will help the liquid fall gently into the glass and settle on top of the lower layer without disturbing it; this will help you get distinct layers of different colors.
Very sweet syrupy ingredients including fruity liqueurs and grenadines are the heaviest and they typically make up the lower most layer. Creamy ingredients such as Irish cream are the lightest and usually make up the top most layer.
Grab everyone's attention by making this sensational drink just as your party is really swinging. Use extreme caution though and make sure you've practiced this act several times before even thinking of carrying it out in front of guests.
