The Best Cocktails to Serve at Your Event

Serve Delicious Cocktails at your Party or Event!

Hosting a party can be daunting. You’re excited to have all your friends and family over but overwhelmed by the thought of serving cocktails. Simple Times Mixers has made this process very easy for any skill level. Pre-batching your cocktail for a self-serve station is easy preparation and allows you as the host to enjoy their company! 

Preparation 

Before you begin making your batched cocktail, you need to determine how many guests will be attending. It’s best to overestimate to ensure that nobody is left empty handed. You can batch your cocktail directly into a pitcher or large bowl for the easy self-serve option! 

Items needed: 

  • Cups
  • Plates 
  • Liquor 
  • Mixer 
  • Ice
  • Complementary food options to pair with your drink

 

Batching 

Batching measurements can be confusing! Don’t worry, you only need to calculate two ingredients when using Simple Times Mixers. 

A traditional 4 oz cocktail 

  • 1 oz of liquor 
  • 3 oz of Simple Times per drink

Multiply each individual ingredient by the amount of drinks per person and the number of people attending.

Batched drink calculation: Liquor: 2 oz x 2 drinks per person x 10 people = 40 oz of liquor


Looking to batch a mocktail option at your gathering? Simple Times Mixers can easily be made into a non-alcoholic drink for your guest. Using the same measurements as the cocktail, you will simply swap out the liquor for soda water or your favorite non-alcoholic spirit. Batching any carbonated drink should be done as close to your party start time as possible so your drink doesn’t go flat!
