As the weather finally warms up, those of us who are partial to a little socialising are counting down the days until we can get a glass of bubbly in hand and friends dancing.

And if you’re looking to host a little cocktail party, nothing is more important than to have a good range of drinks and nibblies on hand.

To help you in your quest to serve the most delicious cocktails (and to be the most impressive hostess), we’ve compiled our absolute favourite cocktail recipes, along with our best canapes, so you can spend less time researching and more time dancing.

All recipes by our sister site, Food To Love.
