Lifestyle | How to Throw the Perfect Cocktail Party

You will need

  • A somewhat copious supply of alcohol
  • A cocktail shaker
  • Mason jars
  • Mixers
  • Hors d’oeuvres (more commonly known as snacks)
  • A banging playlist

Step 1 – Plan the menu

Is your cocktail party going to be a sophisticated affair? Or, is it more of a pizza and chicken nuggets kind of do?

Either way, you need to decide on some dishes before hand and prepare them all in advance so you can socialise when your guests arrive.

Step 2 – Create an epic playlist

Aside from the food and drink, the music is the most important factor in giving a party ambience. Here’s some of my favourite tunes of the moment:

Fetty Wap – Trap Queen 

Ella Eyre – Good Times 

Karen Harding – Say Something 

Sam Feldt – Show Me Love 

Step 3 – Cocktails!

Obviously, no cocktail party is complete without some cocktails. Serve them in jam jars with vintage stickers on for a little extra oomph.
