Can you help me?

I am having a party on Thursday and I have no idea at all what to serve for an alcoholic beverage. I have red and white wine but I like to have a drink as well. We just served Margarita's on Labor Day and I don't want one of those again yet! I was thinking something fruity with Vodka or Rum. I would also like to be able to make it ahead and have it in pitcher's to serve through out the party. Any ideas? I think last year I did Vodka with pineapple juice, orange juice and cranberry.

Let me know if you have anything better than that for me!

Happy Entertaining!!!

I've recently discovered the Sea Breeze and really like that.

That is a great idea thank you! I may go and get some fresh grapefruit and juice them. Thanks so much

How about mojitos! People go nuts for them. So yummy and the mint is kind of kicky and fun.

What about Sangria? - you just buy more wine then spice it up with fruit and a bit of cinnamon for fall flavour and serve them in pitchers.

I've used an emergency fix recipe a freind taught me, by adding a Portuguese drink called "Sumol" (orange flavour with red wine - pinapple for white wine) to my wines for instant sangria. Add some fruit and spices, then presto! You can make it ahead then add some ice before setting out.
