Batching Holiday Cocktails

Holiday get-togethers and the drinks that accompany them are just around the corner. We love to throw a party but when we’re hosting, we don’t want to get stuck behind the bar.

The answer? Batched cocktails.

Pre-mixing a cocktail or two, in addition to beer and wine, gives your guests plenty of variety and streamlines the drinks table.

Here are a few insider tips:

- Make enough for about a third of your guests.
- Mix liquors and syrups in a pitcher or wine decanter up to a day ahead of time.
- Add citrus juices or fizzy ingredients just before serving.
- Prepare garnishes ahead and store between damp paper towels.

Voila! Drinks for the masses.

 

Negroni

Give this colorful classic a try.

Mix equal parts gin, Campari and sweet vermouth. Add more gin if you like a drier drink.

Add one part water to account for dilution or pour undiluted straight into glasses over ice.

Garnish with an orange twist.
