Tis the season for outdoor BBQs, backyard parties, and poolside get-togethers. While all these activities make summer into summertime, they all require ice cold cocktails to really get the party started. After all, what is a party without a beverage? However, making sure that your guests are properly hydrated can pose a problem. How do you make sure everyone has a mixed drink in their hand and that you get to enjoy the party yourself?
You could hire a bartender. Too expensive. You could stand there and mix the drinks yourself. That option leaves you working all night with no time to enjoy the party. You could leave a bunch of mixers and liquors out. However, without supervision things will get spilled, liquor will flow a little too freely, and glasses may get broken.
So that leaves one solution: whip up a big batch cocktail beforehand so a refreshing cocktail is available all day long. With no hassle and no mess, it is the ultimate solution for an easy, stress-free party beverage.
