Take advantage of that first beautiful spring evening with a martini party

Date Created: 04/06/2012

Take advantage of that first beautiful spring evening with a martini party. Spring entertaining season is finally here, so if you're not the kind of person who likes to experiment with party themes and loves a good martini party, now could be the perfect time to host a springtime cocktail bash. Plan an evening get-together during a weekend in May and get your family, friends and co-workers together to try a few of your new seasonal cocktail recipes. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

1. Party decorations. While you may not to go over-the-top with your party preparations, you can still infuse your space with little dashes of festive color that will make it more inviting. Setting up a bar area is instrumental to improving the flow of your gathering and giving your guests a place to stop and chat. Along with colorful plastic martini glasses and shakers, you can dress up your bar with colorful streamers, curling ribbon and gossamer paper. You should also put out a bowl of peanuts, bar nuts or other assorted small snacks for your guests to munch on throughout the evening.

2. Invent a signature cocktail. To make things a bit simpler on your guests when choosing a highball and to narrow down your shopping list, create a selection of five to six libations for your friends to choose from. Do a bit of research and find a group of spring-inspired cocktails that utilize a few in-season fruits, citrus juices and versatile liquors that can appeal to any palette. By making a few of the drinks with the same ingredients, you can cut costs for your gathering and still give your guests something new and unexpected.

3. Catering. Since you don't want your guests to come over and enjoy a few beverages on an empty stomach, have the event catered with some filling food. Keep a stack of party tableware handy, and look into a few catering supplies that will help you avoid doing dishes at the end of the evening. Best of all, having a delectable before and after dinner cocktail waiting for them is sure to keep your guests in good spirits.

With the weather forecast steadily improving, your spring party possibilities are expanding each day. This year, play the role of bartender and come up with a few of your own delicious libations that are sure to impress your guests and make your home the go-to spot for spring and summer gatherings.
