Instead of a full bar, Art recommends offering guests a single drink choice, like this Frozen Tropical Fruit Martini
. For perfect frozen drinks he freezes the ingredients in a Teflon pan, then mixing it all up in his beloved Viking blender. "I use a blender for everything!" Art says.
If you do choose to serve wine with dinner, Art suggests decanting it into pretty carafes and letting the guests pour for themselves—that's what he does at Oprah's house.
