This handy planner for social gatherings comes in an original and practical format that will please today's party hosts. Boxed together is a set of cocktail recipe cards and the paperback book, "Cocktail Party Guide". Each festive, full-colour cocktail card displays the photo of a popular drink on its face side and presents a recipe for preparing that cocktail on the reverse side. A total of 50 cocktail cards show how to prepare: Planter's Punch; Pina Colada; Pink Elephant; Latin Lover; Rose Blossom Girl; Singapore Sling; Moscow Mule; and dozens more. The "Cocktail Party Guide" tells which spirits to buy when preparing for a party and lists all needed party accessories, including cocktail shakers, ice crushers, and the right glasses for the right drinks. The rest of the book is devoted to party themes, with ideas or cocktails and snacks appropriate to each theme. Colour coding on party-theme pages matches colour coding on drink cards suggested for each party. The party themes are a Caribbean Pool Party, a Tex-Mex Party, a Little Italy Party, an Asian Party, and a Russian Winter Party.
This combination package has great ideas for entertaining, chic party-theme illustrations, and vivid photos of food, drink, and decor.
