What about a cocktail tasting party?
Some people plan a party around a “Theme Drink” like a favorite frozen Daiquiri recipe. But why not mix it up a bit with some great cocktails? You could even make a game of it. Make several different cocktails and have your guests guess what it is and what ingredients are in it. Or have all the ingredients for several different cocktails and let your guests come up with their own specialty drinks. You can vote on the most delicious and the winner gets a supply of their favorite spirits.
