Free giveaway: Fantastic cocktail recipe book!

Because the 15-Minute Party Planner has been on a bit of a hiatus, it’s time to come back full-force with a giveaway! Since the 15-Minute Party Planner is all about the belief that party planning should be quick and easy, I've selected a great book, Fantastic Cocktails & Mixed Drinks, which shows the reader step-by-step directions to producing delightful cocktails. And, because the book is broken down by the type of spirits featured, it’s a great resource for any 15-minute party planner, who won’t be running to the store to stock up on crazy ingredients.

I’d like to reward my faithful following with this giveaway! I’d also like to boost readership and comeback full-force. So, if you’d like to win, here are the rules:
  • The contest is open to everyone. You’ll get one entry just for leaving a comment on this blog with your favorite quick-and-easy party planning tip.
  • You’ll get additional entries for each of the following (just note which ones apply in your comment on the post):
    +2 entries for becoming a fan (or having already been a fan) of The 15-Minute Party Planner on Facebook
    +2 entries for following ITandO on Twitter
    +5 for reposting this contest announcement on a social networking site (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) Just send me the link for your announcement! (And sorry, but only the first post on each site counts for the extra points.)

  • Once all of the entries are in, I'll give each entry a number and then feed them into an online random-number-generator. The entrant whose number corresponds with the generated number will be the winner!

  • Of course, in order to get you your prize in a timely fashion, I’ll need a way to contact you. Please provide your e-mail address, website/blog contact page, or some other way to contact you, provided you win.

  • The contest ends Saturday, August 21st at 11:59 p.m. EST.
Good luck!


  1. I love margaritas, but don't have a clue about making them. People tell me to use fresh fruit. Any clues?

  2. Strawberries are a great way to spice up a margarita! You can use fresh or frozen. If you use frozen, the strawberries double as both a flavor-booster AND your ice for a frozen margarita.
