I’m all about DIY, especially on busy days like holidays when you’re slaving in the kitchen getting the massive buffet ready. Make cocktailing easy on yourself and your guests by setting up a booze and juice bar this Easter. The combinations are endless, but I recommend picking two of the clear spirits, like vodka, gin, tequila, or rum, all of which mix nicely with juices. Then, spend a little extra time squeezing fresh juices, like grapefruit and orange. Unfortunately pomegranante is out of season and I have no idea how to squeeze cranberries, so pick up nice versions of those. Then cut up a few garnishes and let your guests channel their inner bartender. Some common combinations are:
Screwdriver: vodka + orange juice
Greyhound: vodka (or gin) + grapefruit juice
Salty Chihuahua: tequila + grapefruit juice
Cape Codder: vodka + cranberry juice
The bottom line is, have fun and empower your guests to experiment.
So, who’s making a lamb cake? I am!
