Summer lovin’ happened so fast…summer rummin’ let’s make those drinks last! Hehe :p (like what I did there?) Nothing makes me happier than enjoying delicious drinks with the company of friends and family. My boyfriend + I recently moved into a new place and while planning our housewarming party, we wanted to think about a fun way to set up a drink station for our guests to enjoy!
Let’s face it, we would all love to be on a permanent vacation. Hanging by the pool, going up to the tiki bar for your favorite Bacardi & Coca Cola drink, but since we can’t always be on vacation, why not make your drink station feel like vacation?!
Bacardi + Coke is a classic drink but displaying it doesn’t have to be boring! One of the first things I do when I am having guests over is plan out the experience they will have. A lot of time is spent in the kitchen – grabbing food, mixing drinks etc., so even if you are serving a classic cocktail, add a twist when it comes to decor.
After planning the experience in my head, I begin shopping. I actually won these fun lights (palm tree + pineapple) at an arcade LOL (I am a bit of a kid at heart). The Coca-Cola glasses were a Dollar Store find + the Coca-Cola vintage straw caddy was a gift my dad got me at the Grand Canyon when we road tripped cross country for my move from NY to LA! #Memories
Isn’t it fun when decor has meaning as well as tons of appeal?!
After decorating the space, it’s time to stock up on your bar essentials – mine? Bacardi Superior Rum + Coke Mini Cans! I love the Coke Mini Cans because they are cute + fun to share with one another AND easy to pour as opposed to the larger bottles (less mess to clean up haha). I feel they also add a little something extra to your bar set up! Make sure you chill them prior to guests arriving, or add a few ice cubes as you prepare each drink.
I start out by pouring 1.5 oz. of Bacardi Superior Rum followed by a Coke Mini Can and voila…you have the perfect Rum + Coke ratio. Sometimes all you need is that classic!
Are you ready to enjoy your Bacardi + Coke?
