10 Swanky Cocktails for New Year’s Eve
In a few days we will be ringing a brand, spanking new 2017! I’m excited for this new year! Honestly, I’m excited for every new year, because it’s a time to renew and reset. I’ve never been a great typical resolution setter, as I learned early on that keeping them lasted about a week. But a new year brings a new energy and a new hope. To improve upon the great things you did before and try to right the areas in your life you may have gotten a bit wrong. I guess that’s a bit like a resolution – you resolve to become a better version of the one you were before.
No matter what you may decide of your self improvement for the new year, toasting with a swanky signature cocktail at midnight is the perfect way to mark the end of one year and the start of the new. They are stylish and by far more fun than your traditional champagne toast – well unless you are presenting your guests with Dom or Cristal. In that case, I will be more than happy to join as well! I never say no to Dom Perignon!
Serving a signature cocktail to your guests as they arrive is another fun way to get your party going and encourage mingling, especially if champagne will be the final for the evening. This is your last chance to make a stunning impression in 2016, so dress to impress, deck the halls with sequins and sparkle and serve your guests a swanky cocktail they will raving about all of 2017.
