Top Party Drink Recipes Guests Can Make

Take some of the party-planning stress away by putting together a mix-your-own bar! Get inspired with our top party drinks that guests can mix up and make themselves. When mixing up a fabulous cocktail party, you want to make sure you have a wide selection of drinks for your guests to choose from. Some guests may be loyal to vodka, while others are self proclaimed "winos".

Letting your guests mix up their own spirits is also a great way for guests to monitor their alcohol consumption. I don't know about you, but I've had jungle juices that ranged from a simple koolaid and vodka mix to an intense mix of vodkas, Bacardi, and Everclear. One thing is for sure - not all drinks are created equally!

When planning your mix-your-own bar, you'll have to have a few extra bar supplies readily available. Depending on the size of the party, you may want to consider having 2 small ice buckets out instead of one large one. Be sure to have plenty of clean glasses and extra bottles of booze ready for keeping the bar stocked and clean.

Here are some of our favorite easy to mix cocktails that your guests will love making and tasting. Just make sure you have all the ingredients and garnishes ready!

  • Fruity and bubbly, this light Pearfect Pear Cocktail is sure to be a hit with the ladies of the party. With only 2 ingredients, this punch recipe is a no-brainer.

  • Rum and coke is a cocktail classic. We like the added zest in this spin on that traditional recipe - the Charro Negro .

  • Who would've guessed something so simple would be so tasty? Add lime juice, vodka, and a touch of sugar for an irresistibly tasty Vodka gimlet.

  • The perfect drink for any celebrtory occasion, this 3 ingredient Raspberry Sparkler is equal parts Champagne, Raspberry liquor, and festivity!

  • Nobody can resist a tasty chocolate cocktail! Guests with a sweet tooth will rush to mix up their own Mint Decadence martini.

  • Your friends love to party just as hard as the rock stars, so why not let them mix up a drink worthy of the loudest, wildest rock star? Straight whiskey a must, leather pants optional.

  • Every party needs a classic yet irresistable martini! This apple martini may be quick and easy to make, but packs just as much flavor as any apple cocktail.
