Cocktail Party!

This is the perfect week for a cocktail party.  There are just a few days left before you make your clean-living New Year’s resolution, so now is your chance to live it up! I like to have one or two signature drinks as opposed to a full bar.  I also like to have a drinks area that is clearly self-serve, so that I don’t have to do any mixing during the party. Here are some of my favorite recipes for a cocktail party.
