(ARA) - The holiday season means taking time out of our busy schedules to share memorable moments with family and friends. And for many of us, that means entertaining at home and hosting parties for our neighbors and loved ones.
Whether you're planning a small, intimate gathering or throwing a large-scale get-together, these entertaining tips will help keep the holidays happy and safe for all of your party guests.
Improve the mood with food
Think "To drink, or not to drink?"
Celebrate one drink at a time
Stick to your measurements (and we don't mean your waistline)
If you choose to serve hard liquor drinks, use a shot glass to avoid making mixed drinks too strong. If you're offering wine to your guests, use smaller wine glasses that allow you to control the serving size.
Understand all drinks are not consumed equally
Practice your "last call" for alcohol
