Stock the Bar for Your Holiday Fete

Stock a festive bar for the holiday season with these tips from TheDailyMeal.com, courtesy of Charlotte Voisey, James Beard Foundation-recognized mixologist and cocktail enthusiast.
Festive Garnishes… Cut up a variety of bright, thin-skinned fruits like kumquats, key limes, Meyer lemons, tangerines, and blood oranges for guests to garnish their cocktails, whether it be a simple gin and tonic or a Blood Orange, Ginger Beer, and Tequila Cocktail.
Open House Drinks… If you’re hosting a holiday open house or any other large gathering, think about serving a seasonal drink in a large format. Not only does serving a punch, mulled wine, or batch of eggnog make getting a drink easy for any guest, it also enables you to make something more elaborate ahead of time (instead of mixing and re-mixing, the same cocktail all the night).
If you opt to serve one of these drinks, don’t forget to add a punchbowl and ladle, and tea cups for any hot beverages, to your list. Also, freeze a large block of ice (using filtered water in a Tupperware container), to put in your punch so that it doesn’t get watered down too fast.
