DIY Cocktail Station!


No host wants to play bartender! Instead, create a DIY cocktail station so each guest can be their own mixologist! Start with having 2 different mixtures of gin + tonic water and vodka + soda on ice for guests to choose from. Then buy or make a few different simple syrups. We created 3 simple syrups, jalapeño, ginger and grapefruit so there are options for everyone. Some like it spicy and others like it sweet! Place out a nice mix of fruits and berries to muddle and garnish with. Then add some mini-umbrellas and lei flowers to the table for garnish. And don’t worry about matching glasses, since it’s fun to have a variety of different sizes, looks, etc. Finally, to give each cocktail a little kick, set out some bitters. We used 4 different flavors of bitters to play with! Happy mixing!
