Cocktail Party Catering

Cocktail parties are a great way to bring friends or co-workers together with style and elegance. Guests can freely mingle and chat with friends while enjoying great drinks and hors d’voures. Corky’s Catering can provide the essential elements to making the best possible cocktail party.

Corky’s offers full-service catering, which includes supplying bartenders, servers, liquor, and rentals. Everything from cocktail napkins to complete event management is possible with Corky’s Catering. We recommend appetizers like our caprese kabobs, fresh vegetable trays, chicken quesadillas, fruit and cheese trays, and bruschetta. A great way to cap off the evening is with some sweets. Corky’s dessert options include our famous Crybaby cookies, cheesecake lovers, custom decorated cakes and more.
