What you'll need: ginger beer, limes, vodka, cranberry juice cocktail, raw cranberries and lime slices (for garnish)

How to make it: think of a vodka cranberry with ginger beer. Mix together eight ounces ginger beer with lime juice, one shot of vodka and a tablespoon of cranberry juice. The juice can be altered to your guests preferences, works great with seltzer, tonic or even grapefruit juice. Garnish with cranberries and a lime slice. Serve out of a festive moscow mule mug, a mason jar or whatever you prefer!

1. A large table. You need a lot of space when you have a clam bake, the main dish and sides take up a lot of room plus all of the clambake decor to showcase. Try one of our biergarten tables and benches to serve your dishes on. They're easily transported as they fold up and you can line as many as you'd like in a row.
