Hosting A Holiday Bar


We’ve all been there. You’re the one hosting the holiday/winter party this year and you’re stumped when it comes to the bar. The menu is all set. You know you want something that pairs with the food. But also something that is fun and bubbly. And what about for those whiskey lovers? Great. Now you’re going to end up spending more on drinks than on the food itself! And who just has 12 different bitters laying around to make the “perfect pinterest cocktail?” – I sure don’t! These are the questions that always plague me. When hosting any sort of get together. So I put together a cocktail menu of 3 very different cocktails that are SUPER easy to make. Minimal ingredients. And ALL your guests will love. Also, they won’t break the bank! I had such a great time collaborating on these with Corey of Miss Foodie Problems – be sure to check out her incredible food blog¬†for even more delish inspirations!
