  • St. Patrick’s Day Party

    Nothing signals the arrival of spring like a festive St. Patrick’s Day-themed party. It’s a tradition that dates back centuries, and in the US, everyone is at least a little bit Irish on St Patrick’s Day!

    Parades and pub-crawls are great, but throwing your own St. Patrick’s Day party can be just as much fun! Here are some ideas for hosting a stylish and modern St. Patrick’s Day gathering.

    COCKTAILS

    Naturally green cocktails are a must, and of course, a Guinness cocktail will be the hit of the party! Check out our tasty suggestions below.

    FOOD

    Corned beef and cabbage can get a modern makeover by creating Corned Beef & Cabbage Mini Sliders. Slice the corned beef and top with a slaw instead of the usual boiled cabbage; so tasty and easy to eat! For dessert, how about Chocolate Guinness Brownies? Sooo good!

    DECOR

    Shamrock and leprechaun cutouts, Irish flags, and green streamers are the typical choices when it comes to creating a St. Patrick’s Day atmosphere. But if you would like to try something different, fill the space with Irish bells (a plant whose green flowers look like church bells) and gold chrysanthemums. The bells are said to bring good luck, and the chrysanthemums symbolize wealth. Create a centerpiece for the table that incorporates the holiday’s traditional colors, but leave the cartoon shamrocks behind.
    Filling mason jars with green, gold and white candies and tying ribbons around the top with shamrock name tags is a quick and easy way to make sure guests don’t leave the party empty-handed.


    COCKTAIL
    Green Apple Shamrock

    • 3 oz Stirrings Apple Martini Mixer
    • 1.5 oz. Crown Royal Regal Apple
    • Garnish: Slice of apple and shamrocks

    Place Crown Royal Regal Apple and Stirrings Apple Martini Mixer into a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, and pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with apple slice and shamrocks. Shake over ice. Pour into glass.

    BEER COCKTAIL
    Black Irish Shamrock

    • 4 oz. Guinness Stout
    • 3 oz. Stirrings Lemon Drop Mixer
    • 1 oz. Stirrings Blood Orange Bitters

    Pour Stirrings Lemon Drop Mixer and Blood Orange Bitters into a tall glass. Top with Guinness.

  • Valentine's Day

    Make your Valentine’s Day an affair to remember with some creative entertaining ideas for your romantic night. For your significant other or a group of close friends, a thoughtful menu filled with signature cocktails, savory recipes and sweet treats will be much appreciated by your loved ones.

    COCKTAILS

    This occasion calls for a little indulgence and a touch of romance, so why not serve a cocktail like The Blood Orange Mimosa, made with Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer and champagne?

    For a non-alcoholic version, try Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer topped with Sparkling Water. Add the finishing touch by garnishing either option with fresh raspberries.

    FOOD

    Preparing a romantic home-cooked meal for special someone is the perfect way to show how much you care. To avoid spending all of your time in the kitchen, stick to flavorful recipes that can be prepped in advance or prepared in a flash. A menu of baby spinach salad with hearts of palm, followed by herb-roasted fish and some simple sides would ensure a stress-free experience. Keep it light to save room for a molten chocolate cake for two.

    Or, host a dessert-only themed party for a group of single friends! Gather an intimate party around pots of chocolate fondue with small plates of strawberries, sliced bananas, marshmallows, pound cake and chocolate brownie bites. Guests may each have their own fork for dipping, but the shared dish certainly encourages fun conversation and interaction.

    DECORATIONS

    For your Valentine’s Day fête, love should be all around you! To engage all of your senses, use décor, music, and lighting to bring romance into the room.

    While red roses are traditionally the chosen flower of the holiday, any pretty bloom in a pink tone, ranging from bright fuchsia to pale blush, would be a lovely alternative.

    Get inspired with your Valentine’s Day playlist by filling it with romantic or playful love songs by your favorite artists. Let your loved ones bathe in the glow of candlelight. Place unscented votives of different heights on your dinner table and around the room to cast a warm ambiance.

  • Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving just may be the easiest holiday to love. Delicious food, tons of friends and family gathered around the table, and a cocktail in your hand… just to name a few of your favorite things! Whether your style is cosmopolitan or traditional, a dramatic table with personalized touches is a sure way to make it a memorable holiday for all your guests.

    COCKTAILS

    Clear a side table or desktop in another room to create a cocktail bar. Incorporate a variety of spirits and Stirrings® Mixers, plus garnishes to allow guests to explore their cocktail creativity. Don’t forget to have plenty of non-alcoholic options for those who choose not to toast with spirits.

    FOOD

    While the turkey roasts, put out plenty of light appetizers your guests can nibble on, along with bowls of cashews and pistachios. Make things easy for yourself and assemble one warm appetizer ahead of time so you can simply pop it in the oven when your guests arrive.

    DECOR

    An impeccably set table is one of the most effective ways to spread a festive holiday mood. But a Thanksgiving table doesn’t have to be a Broadway production. All you need is a few inspired ideas. Simple wicker baskets filled with seasonal vegetables, fruit, and flowers is a great place to start!

  • Holiday Celebration

    The holidays can be the most wonderful time of the year, but they can also be the most stressful, with expectations for holiday gatherings so much higher than normal day-to-day get-togethers. Translation: there's usually more work to do. Long holiday to-do lists don’t help. But Stirrings® can! Here are a few ideas to lighten your load.

    COCKTAILS

    Set up a cocktail table with pitchers of premixed, holiday-themed favorites. With Stirrings® Mixers, this will be done in a snap. And don’t forget the non-alcoholic options! We’ve got some great suggestions below.

    FOOD

    Here at Stirrings®, you can always find our staff comparing and sharing recipes during the holidays. Beef Tenderloin is a holiday mainstay, and a delicious sauce will transform this dish from tasty, to something guests will rave about. What puts this meal over the top are warm Thyme Popovers, which we can guarantee will disappear all too quickly!

    DECOR

    A Christmas Tree Decorating Party can be a lot of fun, without a lot of stress. A naked tree isn’t the sign of an unprepared hostess; it’s a blank canvas that encourages guests to get creative! And it’s the kind of party that can be held any time of the day, giving you lots of menu options. Before guests arrive, have the tree set up in its stand, light a fire, and queue the Christmas carols.


    COCKTAIL
    Cranberry Cocktail

    • 1.5 oz. Ciroc Red Berry

  • Kicking Off the Holiday Season

    When the weather turns colder, we can’t help but get into the festive mood. Warm fires, twinkling lights, toasty drinks, and togetherness seem to seep in naturally, so why not celebrate it? Friends and family don’t need much of an excuse to get together, but we’ve got some great ideas that will make an evening of holiday fun extra special. If you’re looking for a reason to get friends and family together, why not host an ornament exchange? Request that each guest bring a wrapped ornament, and organize the exchange White Elephant-style. After everyone has opened their gift, a round of “stealing” rouses the playful spirit of everyone involved. Best of all, each guest gets to go home with a souvenir from the special night.

    COCKTAILS

    Punch bowls or large pitchers of seasonal cocktails will not only brighten a holiday side table, but allowing guests to get up and serve themselves will encourage mingling. Our Pomegranate Orange Sangria is easy to whip up in a big batch, and we’ve even got a non-alcoholic version so the whole family can enjoy. Cranberries and orange wheels make a great, seasonally appropriate garnish.

    FOOD

    A selection of appetizers so that guests can make small plates will keep the gathering from feeling too formal, and if you’d like to open up the option for guests to bring their favorite recipe to share, all the better! Choose some savory bites such as mini-quiches as well as something sweet, such as spiced cookies. ’Tis the season, after all!

    DECOR

    Nothing sets the stage like a crackling fire, but if you don’t have a fireplace, the same warm and cozy effect can be accomplished with candles. Varying sizes and colors can both light and decorate a serving table. Alternatively, a string of white lights woven through fir sprigs are kid-friendly and take no time at all!


    COCKTAIL
    Pomegranate Orange Sangria

    • 2 oz. Stirrings® Pomegranate Mixer
    • 2 oz. Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer

    Fill a tall glass with ice, and orange and lemon slices.

  • New Year’s Eve

    We've adapted a few cultural traditions around the world (featuring food that symbolizes luck in the New Year) and brought them to life in our cocktails! Start your year on the right foot by planning a party in which all food and drink is designed to bring good luck to all your guests.

    COCKTAILS

    Incorporating some of the foods that traditionally bring good luck in the New Year into your cocktail bar is a great way to tie your New Year’s theme into every aspect of your event! Your guests will appreciate the good wishes for the entire year to come.

    FOOD

    Greens: It's no coincidence that this good-luck food is the color of money. Greens such as kale, collards, and cabbage are traditionally eaten on New Year's Day because of their association with wealth and economic prosperity.

    Pomegranate: Long associated with abundance and fertility, pomegranates are eaten in Turkey and other Mediterranean countries for luck in the New Year.

    Citrus: When the Chinese celebrate New Year's Day, they often set out bowls of oranges and tangerines to promote prosperity. This tradition developed from a play on words: "tangerine" and "orange" sound much like "luck" and "wealth," respectively, in the Chinese language.

    DECOR

    When you prepare a menu with some or all of these foods, be sure to share these tidbits with your guests. You could also use some of these as table decorations, for example, beautiful citrus baskets accented with bright green kale leaves will add a touch of whimsy – and, of course, bring all sorts of good luck!
