The Holidays are here...time to entertain. A well-stocked bar cart is an essential ingredient in any successful holiday gathering.  Here's some tips from Festivities Catering to ensure that your holiday entertaining is festive, fun  and filled with style.  

Holiday Cocktail Cart Tips:

1. Create a "signature" drink that can be made in batches.  Have some pre-made in pitchers that can easily be poured into glasses as guests arrive. We suggest a Poinsettia Spritz Cocktail. 

Poinsettia Spritz Cocktail Recipe: 3/4 cup vodka, 1 1/2 cups cranberry juice, 2 ounces St. Germain, 3/4 cup Prosecco, cranberries & rosemary for garnish.  Serves 6.

2. Give your guests options!  Make sure you have all the basics available: wine, champagne, vodka, gin, bourbon.  Bottled Shirley temples and holiday coke bottles are a fun way to make the kids feel special.

3. Go "Glam" with your glassware!  Give your festivities added flair with etched wine glasses,  dainty coupes and holiday colored martini glasses.  

Don't forgot the rocks glasses!

4. Have room temperature appetizers ready.  Hors d'oeuvres that don't have to be heated will allow you, the hostess, to stay a bit with your guests before heading off to the kitchen.

We wish you the happiest of holidays and a prosperous and healthy new year!
