Updated on March 8, 2010

Need Awesome Drinks For Your Party?

Deciding on drinks can be tricky! Which one would my guest like more? Should I have more then one kind of drink? Do they all have to contain alchol!? Well, all of these questions depend on how many guest are coming and who your guest are. If you have alot of people coming then you probably would want more than one kind of drink. You really wouldn't know who is going to like what, so having more than one kind of drink would be better. Think of it this way. Different kind of people, different taste buds! They all do not have to contain alchol, some of your guest may decide not to drink so therefore, having a non-acholic drink option would be better. So, lets get down to business!

      These drinks look so refreshing. I think I'll make some of them, and substitute the alcohol ones with sprite. Nice, colorful hub.
