27 Big Batch Cocktail Recipes to Make Your Next Bash Extra Boozy

27 Big Batch Cocktail Recipes to Make Your Next Bash Extra Boozy

A party isn’t really a party without some crowd pleasing cocktails. No matter the reason for your event, most guests want to have a yummy drink to enjoy while they mingle and eat snacks.

While throwing a party has many obvious advantages (no need for a designated driver, you choose all the delicious foods, you control the guest list, etc.) there are a couple of drawbacks, including the fact that you’re the official bartender for the night.

Serving mixed drinks at a party can be pretty tricky, not to mention time consuming. Although we know the bartender is often the lynchpin of a successful party, you organized this party to spend time with some of your favorite people, not get stuck behind the bar. It’s time to take all the work out of bartending by learning the art of big batch cocktails – large batches of mixed drinks that you simply make before the party that will hopefully last all night long (although these cocktail recipes are so yummy, there’s no guarantee). It’s entertaining at it’s easiest.

These big batch cocktail recipes are worth checking out, especially if you’d rather be spending time with your guests instead of mixing drinks in the kitchen.

Try any of these 27 delicious cocktail recipes and you’re guest will be so delighted, they’ll never want to leave.

 

Blood Orange Mimosa

A traditional mimosa is an ounce or two (depending who is pouring!) of fresh-squeezed orange juice topped with chilled Brut Champagne but in this recipe you replace those navel oranges with the brilliantly-hued juice from blood oranges. This makes a striking and delicious pitcher drink to serve at your next event.
