I recently tried the new BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri. I love that is made with Bacardi Rum and natural ingredients like strawberry flavor, real lime juice and cane sugar. I especially love it is only 95 calories!

Who doesn’t enjoy drinking cocktails with their friends, but hates having to worry about all the extra calories?  The BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT line gives you the best of both worlds with delicious, low-calorie cocktails. Another great thing is that it is ready-to-serve. I don’t have to spend  time preparing drinks and can use that time to enjoy the party instead.

Here are my top party planning tips!

  • Set the stage! Great invitations get guests excited and looking forward to your party!
  • Plan ahead! Choose menu items that can be made well in advance. Appetizers and other dishes that can be frozen and then warmed or baked the day of the party are particularly great.
  • A couple of weeks before the party stock the bar. Choosing drinks that are ready to serve keeps from having to have a bartender.
  • A week  or two ahead plan decorations, gather supplies and make sure you have enough dishes. Launder all linens. Make sure your home is thoroughly cleaned. It will make it easy to give the house a quick once over before the party.
  • Decorate a few days before. Arrange furniture and tables so guests are encouraged to mingle. Don’t worry if you don’t have a chair for every person. This will keep people moving around and chatting!
  • Don’t get too fussy and try to be perfect!Relax and have fun and your guests will too! Create an environment where guests feel welcome and comfortable. Candles can easily add warmth, along with some great music!
  • Have a few games or conversation starters ready to go just incase you need to get the party going.

So invite some friends over and host a wonderful party!
