HOUSTON – If you’re looking for a way to set your mood for your New year’s party, cocktails might do the trick.
Richard Bailey, mixologist with Johnny’s Gold Brick in The Heights, shows two easy delicious libations to ring in 2021 and shares his tips to host a party effortlessly.
According to Bailey, these are the four things to keep in mind when hosting a New Year’s Eve celebration that includes drinks.
1. Keep it simple – use ingredients in your wheelhouse.
2. You can do variations on a cocktail you like and switch in and out liqueurs to make it your own.
3. Pre-batch whenever possible, so you’re entertaining guests and not working in the kitchen.
4. People at parties like to mix and match themselves, so do a station, add straws and let them garnish their drinks how they choose.
