Get the party started with a list of the most popular party cocktails
It’s just not a party without a cocktail, and who better to help us get the festivities started than Kegs on Legs, a mobile catering, event planning, and bar hire service in Melbourne and Sydney.
They know a thing or two about the most popular cocktails served at special events, so we asked them to list their top 7 favourites that are guaranteed to get any party started!
"Tequila has become super popular again, and margaritas would be one of our favourites. We just like to keep it simple with fresh lime, quality Tequila, and Agave syrup."

2. ESPRESSO MARTINI
"This cocktail is still one of the most requested, and is always a great addition to any party." (Plus who doesn't love a Kahlua Cocktail!)

3. STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI
This is one of LENZO's faves! Perfect for a Hens Day or Baby Shower - these sweet and fluffy cocktails are a crowd pleaser. Watch out though, they taste so sweet you might forget their strength!
3. COCO PINA
"With a mixture of rum, basil, coconut and pineapple juice, you can’t go wrong!"
"This refreshing cocktail has great flavours, and is something that everyone can enjoy."
5. NEGRONI & 6. APEROL SPRITZ
"These cocktails work really well on arrival and they are not overly sweet. You can spice them up by adding some passionfruit to draw out a little more sweetness."
Not only do they drink responsibly, but Kegs on Legs is also environmentally responsible, too! After seeing a shift in sustainability when it comes to catering services, Kegs on Legs is jumping on board and working hard in moving towards the use of paper, metal, and glass straws as alternative eco-friendly party products.
And what’s Kegs on Leg’s top party cocktail tip?
“It’s always good to keep things simple when choosing your cocktail list - that way, everyone at your event can enjoy a cocktail or two. Don’t be afraid to stick with tradition, either: there’s a reason why classic cocktails are still a party favourite!”
