Tips for Making Cocktails for a Party
If you’re making cocktails for a large group, here are a few tips:
Choose a signature cocktail: Instead of offering a variety of drinks, consider making one of these recipes the “signature cocktail” of the night. This simplifies the process of mixing drinks and ensures that everyone has the same experience.
Make ahead of time: Prep as much as you can ahead of time, so you can focus on entertaining your guests. For example, you can pre-mix your cocktail in large batches and chill it in a pitcher or dispenser. This also helps to ensure that your guests won’t be left waiting for their drinks.
Garnish in advance: Cut up your garnishes, such as citrus wedges or fruit slices, and have them ready to go. This will make it easier to serve your drinks quickly and efficiently.
Use a jigger or measuring cup: When making cocktails for a crowd, it’s important to ensure that each drink is consistent. Using a jigger or measuring cup helps to ensure that each drink has the same amount of alcohol and mixers.
Set up a bar station: Set up a designated bar station with all the necessary ingredients, such as ice, glasses, and garnishes. This helps to keep everything organized and makes it easy for guests to serve themselves.
Have non-alcoholic options: Not all guests may want to drink alcohol, so it’s a good idea to have non-alcoholic options available, such as sparkling water or fruit juice.
