Setting up a party bar – El Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead drinks!

Decorate with a skull garland or papel picado (Simple video tutorials here)

Stock your bar with:
• plenty of glasses
• coloured straws
• a bucket of ice
• Cocktail recipes (laminated if you’re feeling uber efficient!)
• Spirits and mixers (if it is a b.y.o.b. party you could let guests know which cocktails you have in mind).

A few cocktail terms and techniques:

To Muddle:
In cocktail terms, muddling is the crushing of fruit or herbs, to allow the flavours to be released. You can use a a pestle or even the end of a rolling pin. Push down with a twisting action.

To rim:
To salt a glass, cut a piece of lime and rub it along the rim. Next pour a 1/4 inch of kosher salt (or a 50:50 mix of salt and fine sugar) on to a saucer or plate large enough to accommodate the entire rim of your glass. Dip the rim of the glass in the salt, twirling it around so that the salt sticks on the entire rim.

Crushed Ice:
Some of these recipes call for crushed ice. Here’s how to make it:
Either crush the cubed ice in a blender or fill a bag with cubed ice and bash with a rolling pin. Display on your bar in an ice bucket with lid.

Remind folks at a party to drink responsibly!
