Happy New Year CocktailNew year, new start! Bid farewell to the past and start fresh with a bright and happy future full of love, life, and bubbles! Put a stylish twist on a classic New Years drink this year with this signature Happy New Year Cocktail and follow our four tips to hosting the perfect NYE gathering:

  1. Go finger foods: NYE is about mingling and being in high spirits, you’ll be up late into the night so don’t sober the mood by having a formal sit down dinner that will make everyone sleepy. Go classy, stylish, on trend finger nibbles and keep them small and floating about all evening to soak up the champers!
  2. Entertainment: These parties tend to be long and are guaranteed to finish late, keep the spirits and energy up by having a few little games on hand for when the mood dips.
  3. Breath mints: The best part of NYE is, for many, the kiss. A happy little detail that requires little effort but delivers a maximum return is to have bowls of breath mints around the house to keep everyone minty fresh and ready to pucker up.
  4. Serve bubbles: There’s no better way to ring in the new year than with a beautiful glass of bubbles. Make it extra special with this spectacular Happy New Year Cocktail.
