How to Throw a Sizzling Summer Party

Most of us can’t afford to jet off to the Hamptons every weekend to party like the Kardashians, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t spend your summer surrounded hot bods and party peeps! Here, we’ve got seven tips for throwing a sizzling summer party in your own backyard.

Hire Some Hotties

It’s simple: Hot people go to hot parties with other hot people. Attract the finest in the neighborhood by hiring a sexy lifeguard to stand around at your party. Only have a kiddie pool? So what! A smokin’ hot lifeguard will be the life of the party whether they’re “needed” or not. Plus, his or her presence will make it seem like the party is raging so hard that you need to hire help to keep it under control. If nothing else, your guests will dig the eye candy!

Enlist a Bartender Babe

Kindly ask one of your super hot friends to act as bartender. The caveat, of course, is that they can only wear a Speedo or bikini. Just one more reason for your guests to get in line for another drink! Make sure, though, that they’re able to deliver a cocktail without spilling, or that would definitely be a party foul.

Serve Up Some Summer in a Glass

The fanciest parties always have a signature drink. Sit down with your bartender pre-party to come up with a summery drink that will get your guests sloppy in style. One of our summer faves is the popsicle bubbler – a glass of champagne served with a popsicle for dunking. Or let the popsicle melt for a fruit-infused glass of bubbly!

Don’t Forget the Food

No party is complete without some good grub! Rent your favorite local food truck and park it in the driveway for a few hours. You’ve got tasty, fresh food available for your guests without the hassle of making it yourself! What kind of party host has time for that?!

Set up a Kid Corral

Kids are great (usually), but they can definitely put a damper on a your PG13 party. We’ve all heard the excuse, “Oh, I don’t think I’ll be able to get a sitter,” but don’t let that stop you! If a lot of your friends have kids, eliminate the excuse for them not to come by hiring an on-site babysitter. Mom and dad can have a fun night without having to worry about the little ones.

Light it Up

Once the sun goes down, the real party gets started. Set the mood by stringing up Christmas lights across the backyard. And plus, all those twinkling lights will set the stage for some sick Instagram shots.

Give Out Fun Favors

Your guests graced you with their presence–don’t forget to tell them thanks for helping to make the party a blast! Instead of giving out useless trinkets, give your guests something they’ll actually want. Hand out chilled Hot Rabbit Shots, or set out a selection of awesome temporary tattoos and a bowl of water so that all your guests will remember the fun for days (or at least until they’re able to scrub that dang thing off their forehead).

With these tips, you can transform your casual backyard bash into the most sizzling party of the summer. Turn up the music and turn up the heat!

Plump steak. Juicy burgers. Perfectly charred hot dogs. Is your mouth watering yet? There’s nothing more American than a meat schmorgesborg—and plus, grilling is one of the easiest ways to cook for a crowd.

4. Put the Corn in the Hole

Get your mind out of the gutter—Corn Hole is an American classic! Bring your lawn game game with a set of American themed boards. Better yet, turn it into a drinking game! For every three-pointer, the other team takes a Hot Rabbit Shot!

5. Celebrate on a Boat

There’s no better way to spend a hot July day than on the water. Like The Lonely Island says, grab your towels and your flip flops (and a cooler full of Hot Rabbit shots) and get on a boat!

7. Blow Sh** Up!

Okay, so maybe alcohol and fireworks don’t mix too well. But no Fourth of July is complete without a few explosions in the sky, right?

7 Tips for Hooking Up at a Wedding

Spring is the season of weddings—and when love is already in the air, it’s the perfect opportunity to meet other singles who are ready to mingle. The drinks are flowing, the dance floor is hot and everyone’s dressed to the nines. The scene is set for a romantic evening, and just because you didn’t bring a date doesn’t mean that you should miss out! We’ve got all the tricks you need to snag a hot hookup at the next wedding.

1. Give the Bride and Groom a Heads Up

Going to the wedding stag? Be sure to let the wedding planners know ahead of time so they can strategically place you next to their frisky hot friend from high school.

2. Hit Up the Bar

You made it through the ceremony, now it’s time for the party to really get started. After a few drinks (or shots) you’ll have the confidence to approach that sexy guest who’s been making eyes at you all evening. Have a few of your favorite pickup lines ready so you’re fully prepared to make a great impression. Disclaimer: Even if it’s an open bar, don’t get too drunk—you’ll need to be able to perform at your best later on!

3. Ladies, Lose the Spanx. Men, Unbutton Your Collars.

You’ve gotta get out on that dance floor and shake your moneymaker if your milkshake’s gonna bring all the boys to the yard–don’t let those constricting, uncomfortable garments get in the way! Plus… it’s one less thing to take off once you make it back to the hotel room!

4. The Bride and Groom are Off-Limits (Duh)

But the wedding party? Totally game. The bridesmaids and groomsmen have probably had a stressful few days preparing for the big day, so take this opportunity to loosen them up by showing them a real good time.

5. Don’t Cluster

Fellas, when you group together on the sidelines to leer at the ladies on the dance floor, you look like total creeps. And ladies, if you ever want a man to approach you, don’t be glued to the hip with your BFFs. The key to finding a hookup is to make yourself available. Mingle!

6. Choose Wisely

We’re not saying that non-single wedding attendees are totally off limits, but if you’re going to go there, be sure it’s worth the risk.

7. Bring a Change of Clothes

You really don’t want to be that person who shows up to the after-wedding brunch in your stained cocktail dress or wrinkly suit. Even if you’re not planning on staying the night, come prepared with an extra set of clothes in your car–just in case!

The bride and groom shouldn’t have all the fun at a wedding. Get tipsy, make some new friends and snag yourself some after party fun!

Host a Fiesta Loca for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo (May 5, for those of you who flunked Spanish class) is a great excuse to throw a wild party. We’ve got some tips for making your next fiesta muy caliente!

Spice Up the Scene

You know you’ve sufficiently decorated when it looks like a piñata barfed all over the room. The brighter the colors, the better. Use streamers and tissue paper flowers, and go crazy with the tacky décor from the party store. Consider setting up a photo booth with sombreros, sunglasses, mustaches and more to help get your guests in the holiday spirit.

Make Some Tasty Tacos

Any Mexican food is fair game for your Cinco de Mayo fiesta. The good news is that it’s pretty easy to make! Set up a taco bar with all of the fixins’ and keep the meat warm in a crockpot throughout the evening. Feeling lazy? Grab a party pack from Taco Bell! Your guests will think you’re a rock star.

The Party’s Not Complete Without ‘Ritas!

Obviously the most important element of any party is the booze. Think sugary and fruity. Margaritas are a must; and sangrias and piña coladas are highly encouraged. Garnishes make everything prettier, so be sure to have a handful of fresh oranges, lemons and limes on hand. And don’t forget the drink umbrellas! Arrriba!

Get Everyone Shaking Their Maracas

Leave the mariachi band for another day. Instead, set up a playlist featuring some sultry salsa music, like this one. Throw in some south-of-the-border favorites like the “Macarena”, “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and “La Bamba.”

Have Some Festive Fun

The weather’s getting nicer, so don’t be afraid to use the great outdoors for some party games to liven things up!

Piñata – Demolishing a piñata with a baseball bat is fun at all ages, especially when intoxicated. Pro Tip: Keep the party going by filling the piñata with Hot Rabbit Shots! Make it rain with colorful alcohol!

Hot Pepper Eating Contest – No Cinco de Mayo fiesta is complete with out a bunch of dudes trying to one-up each other in a hot pepper eating contest. Start easy with some banana peppers (wimp), then move on to jalapenos (still pretty lame), serranos (getting hotter) and if you’re feeling really daring, bust out the habaneros (straight up crazy). Heads up: You’ll want to have some milk chasers on hand.

Limbo – What’s sexier than getting low in a round of limbo? Grab a stick or pole, turn up the music and turn up the heat. How low can you go?

The Beginner’s Guide to Hosting a Legit Pregame

Getting a little buzz going before you and your friends head out on the town is a prerequisite for a good night. You know, loosen up a bit so that you’re able to at least pretend that you’re comfortable walking in those killer heels, or chatting up that Taylor Swift look-alike at the bar.

When done right, the pregame will be the only part of the night your friends will remember, so you’ve got to make it good. From Hot Rabbit shots to drinking games, we’ve got all the essentials for getting the party started, before you get to the actual party.

1. Don’t Just Wing It

Have you ever tried to get a group of plastered people to make a cohesive decision? HA! Good luck with that! Make sure that you have a destination in mind, whether it’s a party down the street or the new nightclub downtown.

2. Save the Sloppy for Later

Slamming down hard alcohol is one way to get a crazy party started, but you don’t want your fellow pre-gamers to pass out before reaching the final destination. Have a variety of mixers available to compliment your selection of booze.

3. Be the Host(ess) with the Most(est)

That’s right, it’s your pregame so it’s your responsibility to keep the pre-party going. Make sure that every guest who’s not driving has a drink in their hand and is well on their way to making poor life choices.

4. Crank Up the Jamz

A pregame is not complete without a sick set of beats blasting. Match your tunes to the destination. Headed to a birthday party? Make sure Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” makes the playlist. Going out with the girls? Blast some oldies like Usher’s “Yeah.” Check out these free pregame playlists and get your guests pumped for a crazy night out, no matter where you’re headed.

5. Minimize Inevitable Awkwardness

No one actually enjoys that first phase of a pregame when everyone’s sober. Get turned up and get newcomers on your level by playing drinking games. Here’s a foolproof list to get you started. We recommend the Bunny Race: Stack a pile of Hot Rabbit Shots in the center of the table. On “go,” all the pre-party goers grab a shot–the first to clean out their cup is the winner! Tongues only!

6. Take Pictures Before You Spill and Ruin Your Outfit

Let’s be real. By the time you get to the actual party/bar, you’re probably going to be wasted. Take all your pictures before you get this point so that you can have a handful of decent pics to Instagram later.

A successful pregame will strip you and your guests of your inhibitions, fill you with liquid courage and get you ready to face the sexy strangers you’ll encounter at your destination. Time to party!
