Birthday Cocktails

Presents and cake are great, but we all know that a birthday party is better with something to sip. Whether you’re planning a house party, a small dinner get together or an outdoor BBQ, nothing says “Happy Birthday” better than a healthy selection of booze. Celebrations following your 21st can easily loose their shine, so why not amp up the glitz and glam with some sophisticated cocktails.

Treat yourself and your guests to a large selection of spirits, mixers, garnishes and liqueurs to set the mood for a party to remember. Write up a list of cocktail options for guests to create or let them mix and match their favorites. Either way, no one can turn down a party drink! Throw the soirée your friends will be talking about for months.

Try a brunch theme and set up a light mimosa bar complete with a variety of juices, fresh fruit and bubbly. Not into brunch? Lay out of a spread of old fashion fixins’ with bourbon options, bitters, sugar cubes and orange peels. What something a little more personal? Create a signature birthday cocktail with all your favorites and pre-make before guests arrive. Friends and family will love the idea of celebrating with you even more with a few personalized drinks under their belt.

Adulting isn’t easy, but celebrating a birthday definitely can be. Impress your friends with bottles that cost more than your usual $20 and go the extra mile with a party that’s Pinterest perfect. Search the internet for free printouts and labels to create a professional look for your birthday bash on the cheap. Create a fun Snapchat filter and an Instagram hashtag to go the extra mile with your festive fiesta.

Serve your drinks in festive birthday cups because we’re never too old for confetti and balloons. Use cute stirrers to mix up your concoctions and serve your drinks with something sweet to eat. Play your favorite drinking games to set the mood and don’t forget to have some fun. Pour yourself another drink and party like it’s your birthday!
