(NAPSA) - According to the site epicurious.com, potluck parties are back in vogue-providing the answer for trendy, budget-conscious entertaining.

Melonade Martini
Shifting away from formal, multicourse dinners, potlucks offer a low-key, casual get-together that's fun for guests and can prove economical for the host.

Blogger DeeAnn McArdle provides tips on how to plan potlucks on her blog, UnleashYourInner Foodie.com. Hosts can select the menu and provide recipes for guests to bring, or the host can provide the main entree and leave it up to guests to bring their favorite appetizers, side dishes and desserts.

Stocking a bar can be expensive, and a bottle of wine doesn't go very far when entertaining a large group. Without spending a fortune, you can serve creative, new drinks for your party. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Pick out some cool glasses.
  2. Grab plenty of ice.
  3. Serve Seagram's Escapes beverages, which conveniently combine multiple fruit flavors so there's no need to buy additional juices or sodas.
  4. Add fresh-fruit garnishes.

Planning a potluck is simple-call up a few friends, plan a casual menu and wow your guests with one of these tasty drink recipes:

  • 1 11.2-oz. bottle Seagram's Escapes Lime Melonade
