It's easy to throw a decent cocktail gathering (everyone loves a party), but it takes practice to host a great one. Here's our best trick: Start with a very good cocktail. Give it a fun name (Alabama Slammer, we're looking at you), add a splash of bitters or a rim of spicy cocktail salt, and serve it in a pretty glass. It's a minimal effort, high reward strategy that will make the night memorable.


Don't stress over the food. Stick to a few of our go-to basic hors d'Oeurves -- simple and good will always work.
