Hosting a great party on a budget is easy if you do a little planning. Here's something fun to try next time: Stock your self-serve bar with booze-soaked fruit to keep things fun and fancy.
Make fruit skewers for the types of hard liquor that your guests enjoy most. Soak the fruit in the liquor for at least one hour before serving. Here are a few fruit-alcohol combinations that work well together:
- Pineapple and rum
- Cucumber and gin
- Mango, kiwi and tequila
- Peaches and vodka
Your guests will end up with easy-to-make, tasty drinks and you won't have to spend your whole time mixing something complicated.
