Cocktails are forgiving and they are supposed to be FUN! Be adventurous, have fun with them, and don’t be afraid to change them up a bit to make them your own.

Use what you have on hand to garnish. Think about the flavor you have going on and then choose something that compliments it. The options are endless, and most of all make it fun. It is called Happy Hour after all!


Snacks are a necessity to any party or gathering. They’re meant to be quick and simple in preparation. Easy to serve and good for sharing. Whether you’re planning a backyard party, football tailgate or an evening cocktail party, try to offer 4-6 snack options and always include something fresh, such as fruit or salsa.

Make it easy on yourself by serving a few no-cook snacks such as mixed nuts, store bought hummus with pita chips, or even a large dish of chocolate covered raisins because we all love chocolate!. Offer a variety of savory and sweet snacks to be sure you have something for everyone!



Pull out that slow cooker and get your soup on! Make it a meal by adding a side salad and fresh baked cornbread. I promise your family will love it!




Saving the best for last! Desserts make each day a little sweeter. Whether they are nestled inside lunch boxes or on display for Sunday supper; everyday is the perfect day for dessert!
