6 Easy Ways to Amp Up Your Next Cocktail party

Entertaining at home is fun, but it can be a little trying. With all of the cooking, cleaning, and merrymaking you need to do to ensure the shindig goes off without a hitch, it’s no wonder why, when it comes to the alcohol situation, you tend to keep it simple and offer only beer and wine, and maybe a big batch cocktail you stick in a bowl with a ladle.

But now that mixology has outlasted the naysayers who originally dismissed it as a trend, it’s likely you have a bunch of guests who know way more about craft cocktails than they did five years ago, and because of that, they’re probably showing up to your party craving a pisco sour or a jalapeño margarita way more than they’re craving a Bud Light or a Pinot Grigio.

Want to give your guests a night to remember?  Amp up your cocktail game. Read about how to do it on Parade.

Knockaround Shark Week Sunglasses

It’s officially summer, which means it’s finally beach season again. You can knock yourself out buying all sorts of gear for your sun and sand escapades, but one of the most important things to have when you hit the surf is a pair of sunglasses. They not only protect your eyes from the sun, but make you look really cool, too.

While you may covet a high-end pair of the latest trendy sunglasses, when you’re heading to the beach (and beachside cocktails will be involved), you should consider a more affordable pair that won’t ruin your day if you, say, lose them in the water, or crush them when you sit down on a lounge chair.

That’s where Knockaround sunglasses come in—great-looking, good-quality sunglasses that are all priced at $50 and under; some are even an insanely cheap $10.

The brand just released its official Shark Week 2018 sunglasses ($35, knockaround.com), the fourth installment of an on-going partnership with Discovery, the folks who brought us Shark Week. The 30th anniversary of Shark Week kicks off July 22 but you can start celebrating now with these unique shades.

The glasses’ design is decidedly awesome, with shark jaws lining the lenses, guaranteed to get you compliments while you’re hanging out at the beach this summer. It’s the one shark sighting that won’t freak anyone out.

Even more awesome than the glasses themselves? A portion of proceeds from this years’ release will go to Oceana, the leading international conservation organization focused on protecting and restoring the world’s oceans.

13 Awesome Father's Day Gifts 

Dads come in all shapes, sizes and personalities (old, young, city mouse, country mouse, sports fanatic, techie—the list goes on) but there’s one thing they all have in common: dads are notoriously hard to shop for. That’s why when Father’s Day rolls around each year, we tend to flip out and buy a bunch of random items that he most likely doesn’t want or need. This year, let’s break the cycle. Buy Dad something he’ll actually use, or, even better, never knew he wanted until you gave it to him. Check out our picks on Parade.

After weeks of false starts (at least on the East Coast), it looks like spring has finally arrived and summer isn’t far away. And you know what that means—drinkin’ outside! Nothing’s better after a long day of being trapped in the office than to head immediately alfresco and imbibe something cold and refreshing. While we’re partial to beer, rosé has become the star beverage of outdoor gatherings from coast to coast. So, we’ve rounded up six awesome rosés to make your outdoor drinking more rosy.

10 Awesome Gifts for Mother's Day 

 

Mother’s Day is a great occasion to stop and take stock in what a lackluster child you are to your mother.  You know it’s true.  These days, you barely answer the phone calls of the woman who gave you life, fed and clothed you, taught you things like how to use a spoon, or dispensed age-old wisdom that girls in middle school who were mean to you were “just jealous.”  Yeah, yeah—work’s crazy!  You’re soooo busy!  Get it together and buy her something ASAP!  This is your big chance to make up for being such a jerk.  And even though she deserves more—way more—than whatever you’re going to buy her, she’ll love it anyway.  She’d also love if you’d stop letting her calls go to voicemail.  Just sayin’.  Read it on Parade.
