To keep your hostess duties stress-free, I suggest you chose a festive drink recipe to serve during your party (at the most two) rather than making several different drinks to serve. This will make your bar-tending duties much easier. Also, if you plan to serve a martini recipe, you can make a large batch of drinks ahead of time in a glass pitcher (just measure in cups rather than shots) then when guests arrive you can just stir, and pour into the shaker when needed. SIMPLE!
