In order to not spend too much money we asked guests to bring beer, wine, or their favorite liquor to the party. We supplied some jubelale (from Deshutes Brewery), white wine, red wine, and two signature drinks. In my “pays me money” job I’m a bartender… so, creating these drinks was nearly as much fun as creating all the food for the party! They both involved making flavored simple syrups. The simple syrups can be used with soda water to make tasty non-alcoholic beverages!
