The Last Word Responsible Hosting The holidays are all about being festive. And while we all want to have a good time during the season, please remember to always enjoy responsibly. If serving alcohol at your event, be sure to serve a variety of food and have low-alcohol or non-alcoholic options for your guests to enjoy. Here are three products you can pick up in stores, and a festive mocktail recipe to keep on hand for those choosing not to imbibe.
