Fabolous Party Drinks Ideas

Following the series of the Summer Party here are a few new tips. What is a party without great drinks? A boring party. So make sure you offer a variety of drinks. Remember that not everyone likes alcohol so always have at least two options for them, on the other side, a lot of people associate party with alcoholic drinks, so make also sure you have something for them.

Instead of offering plain water from the bottle you can pour it into a container and add a few lemon slices or any other fruit. It will look much nicer and will add a light taste to it. Another option is to have lemonade available and of course a few sodas for the people who prefer that.

Margaritas are very easy to make, since you can buy the mix ready to just add tequila and some ice. You can make it on the rocks or in the blender. It looks more classy if you add salt on the border of the cold glasses and adorn with a slice of lemon. You can make Margaritas in many flavors.

Another great option is Martinis. They also come in a variety of flavors, just choose one depending on your audience. You can also offer just the regular Martini and add the olives so they feel like they're at a bar.

Want something more tropical? What about some Piña Coladas? You don't make them from scratch, just buy the mix and in a few minutes you have great drinks. Remember to decorate the glasses with pineapple slices or cherries.

Lastly a recipe I want to share with you. I love Sangria and it's so refreshing! I had tried it many years ago, but when I lived in Barcelona I became a big fan of it. There are different styles of Sangrias. You probably know the one with red wine, but one less common is the Cava Sangria. Trust me, you will love it! Here's the recipe:
You will need:
- 1 Bottle of Cava Brut
- 1 glass of Fanta (Lemon or Orange)
- 1 Shot of Brandy
- 1 Shot of Cointreau

- Slices of Orange and Lemon (Optional Peach or similar)
- Ice
- Optional Sugar if you like it really sweet

Pour the sliced fruit into a pitcher, add the Fanta, Brandy and Cointreau and at that point add the sugar if you want. Stir with a wooden spoon. Carefully add the Cava without stirring too much. We want to keep it sparkling. Add the ice cubes and leave a few minutes still. Serve into glasses and Enjoy!

It's very easy to do and very delicious. So let me know if you try it!
