How to make sure you don't run out of drinks!

It's summer, which means that it's party season. At every cookout or event, you need a couple of things to make sure that it's a hit. Food, games, and the most of all...alcohol!

To run out of alcohol, could end the party right then and there. Don't be that guy.

We want to help you to not run into this problem this Summer. With our tips and tricks we will make sure that your event will go off without a hitch!

CREATE A SIGNATURE COCKTAIL FOR YOUR PARTY

Creating a signature cocktail is a great "under the radar" way of making sure running out won't happen. For the most part you'll have a rough idea how much of it you have left.

A little pro tip, we would recommend on making a lot of your signature drink. The reason is because when you have your own drink, people will tend to order your drink rather than something else. So by having enough of yours you bring down the risk of running out of other drinks. And save some money!

KNOW HOW LONG THE PARTY LASTS

Keep in mind how long the party is. This is a good indicator of how much you'll need to last for the whole event. I mean, you wouldn't buy the same amount for a 3 hour party compared to a 6 hour one. Just keep that in mind while purchasing your boos.

KNOW YOUR CROWD

This seems like it would be common sense, but it honestly tends to go overlooked. Don't just buy enough drinks for a "typical" event. No one knows the audience like you. If you know that the people that are going aren't big drinkers , then don'y buy a lot of boos. Self-explanitory really.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO BUY MORE THAN WHAT YOU THINK YOU NEED

We're not saying don't have a budget. What we are saying is be a little flexible with it. You never know what will happen. So it's always good to be over-prepared than underprepared!

HIRE SOME PROFESSIONALS

We saved this one last just because it's not a necessity. You are completely capable to do these tasks on your own. But, hiring a bar professional of some sort will save you a lot of time, guessing, and most of all stress! 

If you have the budget to hire out, we promise you that it'll be a much more relaxed expierecned for and the guests.  

And with some bar services (us for example) , they will sit down with you and work on a unique drink menu that will set your event over the top!

If hiring a bar service is something that you're interested in doing, we offer a couple of different options that is able to suit any party. We won't go over them right now, but after reading this article, you can click right here, to see all of the services that we have to offer!

The most important thing for you to do is....have fun! You shouldn't let all of the planning get to you and ruin a good time. Relax, and make sure that like the guests, you are also having a good time as well!

 

The recipe for the PERFECT mojito!

The summer heat means one thing, it's time for some refreshing Summer cocktails! There are so many good options, but there's one that in our opinion, is just a little better than the rest...

MOJITOS!

We are absolutely obsessed with mojitos! Once you learn how to make a really good mojito, you'll be as hooked as we are!

We're going to give you the recipe and steps to make the perfect mojito!

This recipe is going to call for:

  • 1 cup fresh lime juice about (9-10 limes worth)
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup simple syrup** 
  • 3/4 - 1 cup white or light rum
  • Ice
  • Splash of club soda
**(To make the simple syrup, just combine equal parts sugar and water into a jar, leave it in for about 5 minutes, and now you have simple syrup for your mojito and future drinks.)

The great thing about mojitos, is that everyone has their own special way of making it. After a little practice you'll learn to add and subtract certain ingredients to make it YOUR mojito. But we promise that this recipe will be the perfect recipe to build off of!

Now get to making your mojito!

Love was in certainly in the air on this beautiful day. With the delicious Catering, beautiful china, stunning decor, and our special "Feel the Love" cocktail, this was an event to remember!

Our "Feel the Love" cocktail was a sweet and delicious pairing, and it was poured over cotton candy! The combination of sweetness from the cotton candy, the tartness from the cranberry, and the little bit of zing from the lime, this was a perfect cocktail for a perfect event!

Heels & Handshakes was SUCH an amazing event, where some really awesome, uber successful women came to network and converse about business! These girls mean business, and we were mixing up some mean cocktails in-between some awesome conversations. 

We felt our "Garden of Grace" and "Meadow Sweet Maiden" cocktails and our selection of sparkling wines were perfect for this event, and these ladies seemed to agree!
