The best party that we ever held was a Christmas party. It was held a few years ago on Friday 18th December – the day that the children broke up from school. We started the party at 6pm and allowed the kids to come along as well. We put together a big station with a couple of cocktails to get the party in a swing.
We served dry martinis (James Bond style- shaken, not stirred) in classic cocktail glasses with olives. A dry martini is a combination of gin and martini bianco (the green bottle) with an ice cube. We also served champagne cocktails. For champagne cocktails add a sugar cube into the bottom of a champagne glass. Add a small amount of brandy until the sugar cube has taken up all of the brandy. Top up with champagne or sparkling wine (we used Cremant de Loire) and a string of bubbles will come off the sugar cube.
We live in a commuter village so we encouraged the office workers to call in after they got off the train. We prepared a large number of trays of finger food – mostly bought ready prepared from the supermarket, so all we had to do was to serve it out and just pop the trays in the oven to heat it up.
It got everyone into the Christmas mood and went off with a great swing for the weekend. – Pam, near Reading, UK.
