Special cocktail drink recipes for the New Year.

New Year drinks recipes make every party go with a fizz and a bang. New Year is the day when nearly a quarter of all parties held in the world happen.

The best thing for any host to do whilst organising a party is to ensure that there is an abundant supply of cocktails to keep the guests amused and fully loaded.

Recommended Bar Condiments

For a party, a host must always provide a selection of different styles of glasses for alternative drinks. Straws, drinks umbrellas, and sparklers, although not compulsory, make a party more exotic and talked about for months or even years afterwards.

Creating glasses out of coconut shells and pineapples are hard work, but the finished product adds an elegant touch to any event.

Cheap Staff

For spectacular parties, consider employing a cocktail bar person for the evening and a waitress. The waitress will continually collect and clean glasses as well as other duties to make life easier for the host. He or she can always meet the guests, serve drinks via trays and offer canapes. The bar person can dazzle your guests with magical bar work and offering exotic cocktails from around the world.

12 o'clock High ( Serious yet refreshing New Year Cocktails )


2 shots Pernod, cider, blackcurrant juice, ice


Put 3 cubes of ice into a tall glass, add two shots of Pernod, add cider till the glass is nearly full, top off with a dash of black currant juice, add two straws.

3 shots tequila, 1 measure apple brandy, 1 measure cranberry juice, dash of lime juice.


Put 4 cracked ice cubes into a cocktail shaker, add the other ingredients. Shake until a fog like mist appears and strain into a small chilled cocktail glass. Add umbrella for decoration.

NB* The use of cracked ice cubes in cocktail shakers for cocktail drink ideas allows the liquids to chill faster and is excellent for presentation. Cracked ice cubes are simply ice cubes hit with a blunt object, causing them to crack.

End Is Nigh ( shot drink )


1 shot / measure Baileys Irish Cream, 1 shot / measure white Creme De Menthe

The history of the cocktail allegedly began in he USA. The term 'cock tails' originated from the small dregs that were left in the bottom of ale caskets and jugs. This was poured into one container and then sold to the poorer people of the area.

Although the taste was questionable, the alcoholic cocktail drink produced from such a mixture of dregs, certainly had the desire effect.
