It Don't Mean A Thing...If You Ain't Got That Drink!

Have you ever noticed that Party/Event Planners seem to never put an emphasis on the drinks?  Think about it… how many times have you attended an affair and you walk into the venue and your mouth drops in awe of all the beauty and creativity.  You marvel at the table d├ęcor and extravagant centerpieces. The Dessert and Candy Buffet are color coordinated and well selected to compliment the theme of the function, and even the food choices on the menu have been handpicked to execute the vision of the special occasion.  You’re surrounded by glitz and glamour, then a Caterer walks up to you and asks, “Do you want Water or Ice tea?” in your conventional glass cup ... really! Today’s blog post is about incorporating cool, fun, innovative, and inexpensive drink ideas into your next event.

 Kool-Aid Ice Cubes


Go to your local grocery store and pick up some of your favorite flavor Kool-Aid packages, purchase different flavors for color dimension or choose one flavor/color if you are planning a color theme event.  Make the Kool-Aid just as you would if you were making it for your family. Instead of leaving it in a pitcher for serving; pour it in ice cube trays and freeze.  When the cubes are frozen place them in a transparent cup or Mason Jar and pour any clear beverage of your choice over the cubes (my family uses Sprite).  Not only will this make your drinks POP… but as the colorful Ice cubes melt watch how your drink change colors, and it taste great!

Another great idea to bring life to your party drinks is Glow Sticks.  Glow Sticks are perfect for creating a glow in the dark drink.  Use a clear cup, place the Glow Stick on the bottom of the cup, depending on if it’s a glass or tough plastic, you can use different adhesive sources to secure the Glow Stick.  Pour your choice of beverage and dim the lights and watch your guest light up!

These are just a couple of creative drink ideas I’ve used for parties and family events.  It has brought many smiles to children faces and been the topic of conversation while sipping colorful and flavorful drinks with socialites.  Remember, drinks play a major role in the event so don’t count them out of your overall theme design.  In the words of Kevin Hart, “Hydrate your hustle by making the drink matter”.
