Anytime you entertain and are looking for a tasty bite to keep your guests happy while they wait for the main event, serve your choice of appetizers.
Cocktails are as popular as ever at parties. Whem you're hosting a party, choose a few favorite cocktails to serve your guests, and you won't need to stock a full bar.
