Best Answer

a cocktail party replaces the old expression 'buffet dinner' to mean food that is bite-size, or finger food and therefore much easier than the buffet dinner where you have to hold your plate, glass and cutlery whilst standing up talking and eating - impossible! It's a new term but I think it describes the style of entertaining very well. A cocktail used to be taken before dinner and was accompanied by crisps, olives, nuts, etc.
