Mixologist Julie Reiner is known for creating inventive cocktails at bars like Lani Kai, her recently opened tropical-themed lounge in New York City. But at home, she'll set up a simple make-your-own cocktail station, complete with a variety of fruits: "That way, I don't have to play bartender all night."
