Tips and tricks for your cocktail party

We've put together the six best tips and tricks for you to make your party a complete success.

Tip 1: Planning is everything

Before you start with the preparations, you should ask yourself a few basic questions. How many guests are coming? What kind of cocktails do you want to serve? Do you also want to offer non-alcoholic options? Once you have answered these questions, you can better plan what ingredients and equipment you will need.

Tip 2: The right equipment

For a cocktail party, you will need some basic equipment such as a cocktail shaker, jigger, bar spoon, strainer, ice cube moulds and a glass set. If you don't yet have your own bar equipment, you'll find all the bar accessories you need here.

Tip 3: Ingredients and spirits

When selecting ingredients and spirits, you should make sure that they are of high quality. You'll also need fresh fruit, juices, syrups and other flavourings to give your cocktails that little bit extra. It's also a good idea to offer a selection of non-alcoholic drinks to ensure that all guests find something they can enjoy. There are bound to be some guests who will need to drive after your cocktail party. You can find delicious cocktail recipes with and without alcohol in our new cocktail book.

Tip 4: Snacks and treats

As well as cocktails, snacks and treats are also an important part of a cocktail party. You can serve a selection of canapés, finger food, nuts and desserts to ensure that your guests feel comfortable and stay longer.

Tip 5: Atmosphere and music

The atmosphere is an important part of a successful cocktail party. Atmospheric lighting (e.g. fairy lights) and decorations can help to create a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. The choice of music can also be crucial to lighten the mood and keep guests entertained.

Tip 6: Fun and creativity

A cocktail party is an opportunity to get creative and have fun. You can encourage your guests to mix their own cocktails or organise games such as blind tasting to encourage creativity and lighten the mood.
