Cocktail Party Ideas

Martha Stewart Living, July 2012

Instead of a communal bowlful o’ nuts at your next get-together, try a more hygienic presentation by putting the snacks and party mix in clear-glass narrow-necked decanters, so guests can pour out their portions rather than scoop them up with potentially germy hands. In addition to being sanitary, the clean-lined vessels look fresh and modern.

By midsummer, even the beloved margarita needs a shake-up. These cocktails feature novel twists on the season’s classic drinks.

    That is a great way to serve nuts, etc. A great way to show off collectible bottles.
