In honor of my fabulous sister’s 21st birthday today, I thought we’d talk a little bit about cocktail etiquette!
When enjoying cocktails at a bar or a party, always hold your drink in your left hand so that when you reach with your right to shake hands, your new acquaintance gets the nice dry hand and not the wet one!
The priority at a cocktail party or reception is always the social aspect of the evening, don’t make eating or drinking the priority.
Always remove swizzle sticks, spoons, etc. from your drink before you partake of it. The only acceptable thing to leave in your drink while drinking is a straw that you are using.
