Planning a party this holiday season? Well, one of the crucial things that you need to pay attention to is your bar or drinks menu. The right menu can give your party a serious edge over everything else. It can generate a buzz among your friends and acquaintances, and also serve as a great way to show off your creative genius and party planning skills. It is also a much better option than serving the punch, wouldn’t you agree?
Let us explore a few ideas that can help you come up with your bar menu.
1. Keep things simple with martinis
The key to creating a good drinks menu is keeping it simple. An overly stuffed menu will only confuse your guests and cause your expenses to shoot up. Everyone loves martinis. You can create an exclusive martini menu with a range of martini-style drinks for your guests to enjoy. Along with the classic martini, include options like dry Manhattan, lemon drop martini and even a good ol’ cosmopolitan.
2. Take your guests back to the days of the classics
Take your party as an opportunity to take your guests on a flavor-filled journey to the days when cocktails like Between the Sheets and New Orleans Fizz reigned supreme. These cocktails, even though largely forgotten today, are worth reviving. Creating them takes some time and effort so you might want to hire a professional bartender to dole them out.
3. Include a tropical touch
While tropical drinks are a sure hit at summer cocktail parties, they might be tricky to sell in winter. But don’t let that dissuade you from including a touch of tropical paradise in your bar menu. You don’t need to create an entire menu of Mai Tais; include only one or two favorites for those who cannot resist these fruity concoctions.
4. Stick to a single spirit
Your party drinks menu is an excellent platform to highlight an exclusive spirit or favorite liquor. Such a menu will offer your guests the luxury to choose from a range of cocktails that they may not be familiar with. One thing that you need to remember here is that the quality of the spirit will make a difference, so do not skimp on that.
Creating a drinks menu should is not an overwhelming task, and more so with these simple yet creative ideas in hand.
