Mostess Hostess - Easy Entertaining with Cocktails

Between styling up our new console as a cocktail station & the Superbowl around the corner, it's made me think about the art of easy entertaining. It is a talent I'm all about honing - too often I'm chopping & dicing or playing mixologist while guests are over, more basking in my company, less multi tasking!

Some tips I relish:

Ina Garten advises - make one appetizer, assemble the rest - preach, Ina!

Bobby Flay - cocktails in drink dispensers, cheers to that, Bobby!

Ina's got you covered with starters. I'm pretty particular about cocktails so here are my batch worthy libations that are go-tos for multiple guests. (You can make these mixes sans alcohol and place liquor and club soda on the side so people can tweak to taste).

 

Let's be real - I'm watching commercials come Sunday, that's my Super Bowl! But I won't be refreshing glasses doing so! Cheers to fun & safe entertaining!
