1. Carve edible shot glasses from melons.

Watermelons, cantaloupes... whatever you think'll make the beverage better. Store in your refrigerator while waiting to serve.

3. Stock up on flavored ice.

You can't go wrong with coffee, tea, watermelon-flavored juice, and so on. Well, you could, so it probably wouldn't hurt to try a small batch before your event.

4. Even better: oversized cubes.

Use Tupperware or a gallon bag — something that will expand without breaking or that you won't feel bad about cutting into to get to your cube.

7. Keep a bag of coffee grounds handy.

If someone spills something smelly or loses their lunch, it takes care of the smell and also makes it easier to clean up.

8. Freeze lemon and lime halves.

They'll add flavor and keep drinks cool without diluting ingredients. Or freeze the slices and herbs in water in muffin tins, which will dilute drinks slightly.

And use that icy-cold ice in your Fountain of Flavor.
