For the cocktail menu, feature a trio of gorgeous drinks  both with and without alcohol.

1. The Snowball
1 fl oz advocaat
5 fl oz lemonade chilled
ice cubes and a slice of lemon
Directions: Place ice cubes in highball glass(es) and pour the advocaat, pour the chilled lemonade to fill the glass(es), serve garnished with slice of lemon.

2. Cranberry Margarita
1 1/2 oz tequila
1 oz Rose's lime juice
1 1/2 oz triple sec
1 1/2 oz sweet and sour mix
2 oz cranberry juice
What makes this one fabulous is the Ninja Blender  which whips it up into a creamy, dreamy drink. Add all ingredients into blender with ice. Blend until smooth.

3. White Jasmine Sparkling Tea
This amazing sparkling tea is my favorite holiday drink  served like champagne but sans alcohol  it is as looks pretty as it tastes. Available at Whole Foods.
The holidays are the most hectic time of year  so instead of having a dinner party, serve heavy hors d'ouevres - meaning it fills you up just like a dinner party. This stretches your budget  as you don't need to rent large plates, silverware, tables and chairs, etc.
