    I'm not sure what kind of drinks you was talking about but I give you both..

    Alcohol drinks:
    Sex on the Beach Recipe
    Ingredients 1 oz Vodka
    3/4 oz Peach Schnapps
    Cranberry Juice
    Grapefruit Juice
    Instructions Add vodka and peach schnapps to a highball glass. Fill with equal measures of cranberry juice and grapefruit juice, and stir.
    [This one is real easy to make!!)

    And non-alcohol drinks:
    1 1/2 pints vanilla ice cream
    1 pint orange sherbet
    7 cups pineapple juice
    3 cups ginger ale--combine all of them together. :) Great for kids too.

  • im assuming your talking about alcoholic drinks right? the only alcoholic drink i know of that can be made before hand is jello shots! haha. but drinks are pretty quick & easy.. white zinfandel whine mixed with gingerale is always good, and you can put some kind of berry in the ice cubes (make them that way), it adds a nice taste to the wine. a shot of malibu rum, orange juice, and cranberry juice is a malibu baybreeze. those are delicious. as far as finger foods, i like the cheese cracker meat platters, pretzels chips & dip & cheesedoodles, pigs in a blanket. i like to order italian subs (however big depending on how many people are comming) from the deli. wings are always good. ordering pizza is always a good party food too!

  • Pasta salad, potato salad, jello/coolwhip fruit salad
    I don't know if your talking about alcoholic drinks, but some non are pink lemonaide 1/2 and sprite/7up the other half. That you could chill both halves seperately and then add them together right before you serve.
    rolls with meats and cheeses and have all the condiments you'd have on a sandwhich.

  • Go to
    For a Summer Draught

    1 tumbler Cold Water
    The Juice of 1 Lemon, juice only
    4 small tsp bicarbonate of Soda
    Sugar, to taste

    Squeeze the juice from the lemon.
    Strain and add it to the water, with enough sugar to sweeten to taste.
    When well mixed, add the bicarbonate of soda, stir well and drink while the mixture is in an effervescing state.
    Salads are great. Get a spring mix, dice an apple, throw in some raisins & cheese cubes.
    Get a loaf (or3) of french bread and cut in half lengthwise. put melted garlic butter on it, thin sliced ham, some chives and slices of provolone cheese. toast it to melt the cheese and then cut into indiv slices.
    Peanut butter balls are quick and easy dessert.
    Make a "cereal" salad by mixing KIX, Cookie Crisp or whatever & adding raisins & M&Ms
