Kick Your Champagne Toast Up A Notch

Posted on 30. Dec, 2009 by in Bartender Party Tips

New Years Eve is right around the corner and that means you better get your Champagne toast ready. Champagne is by far the most popular drink for New Years Eve. Make your Champagne a bit more exciting this year with some simple additions that will make people say WOW.

**Put a dash of liquor to add variety. Leopold Brothers out of Denver make some of the best small batch liquors. Blackberry, Sour Apple, Cranberry, tart cherry and Peach.

**Try some flavored rock candy sticks to jaz up your bubbly. Or use some flavored suckers with extra long sticks, bubble gum center-bonus!

**One of the simplest and most elegant additions to your Champagne is a variety of fresh berries. I like Rasberries, Strawberries, and Blackberries.

**For an over the top garnish get some Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup for an amazing garnish at teh bottom of your flute.

These tips should help you on your way to making your New Years Eve Party memorable. Dont forget to hire your Denver or Chicago bartenders from With A Twist Bartending Service.

Mulled Wine for the Holiday

Posted on 08. Dec, 2009 by in Drinks


This is a great warming drink for the holidays. Use a cheaper bottle of wine as the flavor is going to be enhanced by all the aromatics added in this recipe. Be careful not to simmer to hot or all the alcohol will boil off and you will be left with a non-alcoholic wine cider.


  • 4 cups apple cider
  • 1 (750-ml) bottle red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 3 star anise
  • 4 oranges, peeled, for garnish


Combine the cider, wine, honey, cinnamon sticks, zest, juice, cloves and star anise in a large saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Pour into mugs, add an orange peel to each and serve.

Beer Selection, So Many Choices

Posted on 08. Dec, 2009 by in Bartender Party Tips

“What kind of beer should I serve at my party” is one of the most frequently asked questions. Although spawned from good intentions, we have worked many parties where there were five or eight differnt kinds of beer. It sounds great to have so many options but it usually creates a beer shortage. With only a small amount of each kind of beer, you are certain to run out of many and the bartender ends up having to tell people all night that whatever beer they were drinking last is gone.
