    Earlier this month we hosted over 50 friends and family for our annual adults-only cocktail party. There is nothing that makes this ESFJ gal happier than hosting and feeding all of the people I love.

    Entertaining a crowd can be a bit intimidating so to help reduce stress, I like to keep things simple. Whether it’s a store-bought frozen appetizer or a container or pre-made cookies from a bakery, I’m not ashamed to get a little help to make hosting easier and more fun.

    One of my best time-savers is to whip up a big pitcher of these cranberry Moscow mules and allow guests to serve themselves throughout the evening. It’s so much easier than setting up and re-stocking a full bar throughout the night and no one ever seems to mind when you’re offering such a delicious cocktail.

    I prefer my drinks on the citrusy side more than the sweet side so I add a good amount of freshly squeezed lemon juice to balance out the sweet ginger beer and cranberry juice. If you like your cocktails on the sweeter side, just add more cranberry juice or ginger beer. If you’re looking for something with a little more kick, take a look at my jalapeno moscow mule recipe.

    Frozen cranberries offer a dual purpose: they make a beautiful garnish and also help keep the cocktail cold! We typically use vodka but gin works great in a Moscow mule.
