And last but not least, what is a holiday party without cocktails. A boring party, that’s what! Instead of serving the same vodka sodas or champagne that you typically turn to, offer festive drinks that will set the tone for your celebration. These two cocktails are fun, seasonal, and sound delicious. The Hickory Daiquiri Dock combines rum, mezcal (think smoky tequila), lime juice and spiced syrup for a refreshing and fragrant drink, while the Conjunction Junction Old Fashioned combines tequila with orange bitters and cranberry orange ginger syrup. Tongues will be wagging about your specialty drinks long before they even dig into their first course. Let the games begin!
