Welcoming New Year in style with your friends and family is a must need. So what you need to do is arrange a lovely party for them and enjoy to the fullest as you say goodbye to the last day of the year. As this party is going to continue till late night or even till early morning, it is a good idea to start the party a little late. May be it is a good idea to start it around 10.30 PM so that people can have the energy to hold it back till late night.
It is a New Year Party, and so when the clock strikes 12 AM, one needs to cheer together and raise a toast. For that one needs a cheering drink. If you are the host, you have to arrange for it. One can arrange for some cocktails and liquor so that your guests can choose from their preferred drinks. But if kids are there in the party, and if there are some who are teetotallers, then you have to keep some juice and mock tail options.
Here are some easy drink variations (non-alcoholic) to keep in mind if you need them.
Rainbow Layered Yoghurt Drink
This is an instant hit among the kids. One needs to mix seasonal fruits and yogurt to make this colourful drinks and it can easily attract children.
Fresh Mint and Lemon Mojito
