Whether you work at home or have a long commute across town, the truth is that we spend most of our loives at work ~ so, we might as well be having fun! Thursday, January 28th is National Have Fun at Work Day! There's no better time to celebrate your hard work and raise a toast with your colleagues during an office happy hour!
No matter what you do each day, we all deserve a break to relax and unwind with friends or co-workers so that we can reflect on our great accomplishments. Ready to host? Sauza Tequila has a few tips below and signature cocktail recipes to get you started!
Tips for hosting a fun office happy hour:
Set the Theme ~ Whether it's a "getaway" theme with a margarita bar and BBQ favorites, or an early kick-off party for the big football game, choosing a theme for your happy hour will help your colleagues embrace the fun.
Get in the "Spirit" ~ Select a signature cocktail to fit your happy hour theme and then trade in your coffee mug for a copper mug and serve Sauza's Minted Mexican Mule, offering a refreshing agave twist on a popular favorite.
Mix and Mingle ~ Extend the invite far and wide to include colleagues from various departments and take this opportunity to bond with your co-workers. This will help strengthen your work environment in the long run.
Eat Potluck Style ~ Potluck is a great way to share the responsibility of pulling off a fun party, especially when many just "don't have time" ~ plus, having each colleague bring an appetizer or snack guarantees a delicious and diverse spread!
Tune it Up ~ Keep the vibe alive with some crowd pleasing tunes and even if the volume is kept pretty low, music will help transform the occasion from a gathering to a happy hour!
