For every kind of party, there is a drink to match it. This is especially convenient around the holidays when parties occur every day, and when you're getting a little sick of red wine staining your teeth. Plus, everyone loves a good mixed drink, and it requires just a few things: your boozy essentials, a cocktail shaker, and some fresh ice. Having coworkers over? Make a bubbly Manhattan. In-laws dropping by? Offer them a Champagne Cocktail. College roommates having a reunion? Make a big batch of Brown Butter Spiced Ale. The list goes on, the parties go on, and the fun never stops.
