Glitz & Glamour Holiday Cocktail Party – Bubbles, Bubbles Everywhere!!

It’s thirsty Thursday, the perfect day for a cocktail!!

For the Glitz & Glamour Holiday Cocktail Party, I envision lots of champagne and modern twists on vintage favorites.  I recently gifted a beautiful Vintage Cocktails book to my favorite mixologists – my neighbors Dan and Doug.  Full of fun Mad Men style drinks, it inspired me in creating the evenings bar menu.

For parties, I always plan to have plenty of beer and wine and then focus on one or two signature drinks for the evening.  Something fun that appeals to the masses and keeps me from being stuck behind a bar mixing drinks.

Bubbly drinks just scream glitz and glamour.  There are an abundance of lovely sparkling wine cocktail recipes which makes it hard to decide on just one. Whether you prefer Champagne, Prosecco or another sparkling wine, these beautiful drinks will add a bit of sparkle to your party.  And as my friend Nicky says – “champagne makes me giddy” – great for any party!

These individual champagne bottles are adorable – simple and fun!

Pomegranate has become a staple ingredient for the holidays.  Add a bit to sparkling wine to make this yummy Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail.

Presentation can really make or break a cocktail.  Rimming a drink with edible glitter immediately makes simple champagne special.

Ok, let’s admit it, the guys might not be as excited about these sparkling wine drinks as the ladies are.  Add one of these vintage inspired drinks to the menu especially for them.

I’m in love with this drink presentation idea.  My Chocolate Candy Cane Martinis would be perfect for these ornament cocktails.

All these selections will add a fun and festive mood to your party.  Word of caution however, it could make for a rough morning-after!  Not to worry, I’ll make sure we have plenty of delicious eats to balance out the cocktails.  Visit tomorrow as I plan the final step to our Glitz and Glamour Cocktail Party – The Menu.
