Everybody loves a party and most adults love a party that includes alcoholic beverages of some sort. While some have an acquired taste for only certain drinks others enjoy broadening their horizons and trying something new. So why not throw a party and provide something everyone will enjoy.

There are thousands of drinks out there so it can be difficult to decide what kind to serve at your party. Depending on the time of year it might be fitting to do themed drinks or even a beverage that fits the season. Makers of beer provide seasonal flavors and many mixed drinks can be seasonal as well. Once you've decided what you want the theme of your party to be it will be easier to choose the drinks. However you do need to keep in mind that some drinks may require more than one type of liquor and serving too large of a variety may become expensive.

Christmas time seems to be one of the easiest to make drinks for, the most popular of course being Egg Nog. While the main ingredients in Egg Nog do not differ much there are several different styles and ways to make Egg Nog. Each of them are dependent, of course, on personal preference. Most Egg Nogs start with a base of heavy cream, sugar, and eggs. The next step is where personal preference plays a big role, the type of alcohol that is used. While most Egg nog recipes include bourbon they can also be made with a variety of other liquors including Cognac , rum, hazelnut liqueur, and brandy. For a sweeter taste some drink recipes even call for peach schnapps.

Halloween is a great holiday for themed and specialty mixed drinks.  While Halloween shots and drinks may look and taste good some of their names don't always sound appetizing.  Some of these delicious sounding Halloween shots include the Booger, Brain Hemmorage, Green Spider, or even Red Death. How about serving your party guests Toxic Refuse which includes vodka, Triple Sec, Midori, and a splash of lime juice? Or maybe they would prefer a Lobotomy with Amaretto, Chambord, and Pineapple juice.

Maybe it's the middle of summer and you are ready for a party with some nice refreshing drinks that are beach themed. Of course there is always the classic Sex on the Beach with vodka and a variety of fruit juices. Frozen drinks are also a great addition to a summer party.  Just about any type of fruit can be blended with vodka or rum and some ice to make a cool and refreshing daiquiri or margarita.
