Tip #2: Drinks

As promised, today I’m going to talk a little about good drinks to serve at bachelorette parties. Now, I hope you won’t think I’m copping out, but right off the bat I want to tell you about the website I found that helped me learn about good drinks for parties: www.bachelorettepartydrinks.com. I’ve got plenty of experience now, but back when I wasn’t such a veteran I was clueless about drinks. It wasn’t the thing that took me the longest to figure out, but it definitely wasn’t the thing that took me the shortest, either.
As you can see, the site divides drinks up into five levels. The only thing that sets the levels apart is the number of ingredients you need to make the drinks for each one. There’s great drinks on every level, and none of them are hard to make. But if you don’t want to spend too much money on different types of alcohol and mixers, you probably want to stick to the lower levels. If you’ve already got a full bar stocked, by all means, go ahead and try everything. There are very few drinks on the site I wouldn’t recommend. Anyways, here are some of my personal favorites from the lower levels that I think you should definitely try out at your party:

Beach Bum
1 part orange juice
1 part Bacardi
1 part Sprite
Pour into a glass with ice and stir.

Hawaiian Screw
1 part Vodka
1 part orange juice
1 part pineapple juice
Pour into a glass with ice.

Lemon Shooters
Cover a lemon slice with sugar, take a shot of vodka, then suck on the lemon.

1 part Vodka
1 part Triple Sec
1 part sweetened lime juice
Can be served as a shot or on the rocks.

Killer Mudslide
1 part Vodka
1 part Kahlua
1 part Bailey’s Irish cream
Serve in a tall glass over a scoop of chocolate ice cream.

But my favorite has got to be making Jello Shots. These are absolutely great for a bachelorette party. But if you’re going to make them, don’t make too many, especially if the guests have never had them before. They’re so easy to eat that people think there can’t be much alcohol, if any, in them, when really there’s about a shot’s worth. Everyone will want to eat several, but you don’t want them to eat too many or they could easily end up drinking too much. For instructions on how to make jello shots, check out
this page.
And if you’re going to make jello shots for a bachelorette party, I recommend you use
penis-shaped molds. There’ll undoubtedly be plenty of other penis-shaped things at your party, and if the jello can match them, that’s great. If you’re hosting a party free of penises, any jello mold will work.

That’s all for now. If you want any more drink ideas, let me know, and I’ll post some more. But this should be more than enough to throw a great party.
See you next time,
