Certain glasses are designed to improve the flavour of your drinks, for example, whisky glasses are made tothanksgiving party appreciate the aroma of a fine blend while you sip while gin tumblers give the drink more surface area to aerate and allow the botanical notes to shine. The right glass not only enhances the drinking experience but also adds a touch of sophistication to your gathering.

 

Coordinated Colour Palette

Even if you’re not keen on an all-out themed party, a coordinated colour scheme for your decor and drinks complements the overall aesthetic of your party. It can be as simple as pairing up alcohols and mixers in a way that emphasises your chosen colours. For example some gin cocktails with fresh mint would work for a nature-led vibe, and whisky cocktails with notes of spice would be perfect for a fall theme. This simple touch adds an extra layer of visual appeal to your beverage presentation.

Interactive DIY Cocktails

Even adults enjoy party games, and this is the ultimate in grown-up entertainment! A DIY cocktail station allows people to mix and match ingredients and make their own signature drink for the evening. Set out a selection of must-haves like Gordons London Dry Gin, Captain Morgan Rum and Signature Whisky along with a variety of mixers and fall themed ingredients like spices and fruits, and watch people express their inner mixologist.

Expressive Drink Labels

If you’re hosting a large group of people, it’s also important to think ahead and make your life a little easier once the party’s over.
