Sure, beer is a natural choice for game day, but you know what’s really nice? A strong cocktail to get you through. We get that no one wants to be mixing drinks during the Super Bowl, but that’s why big batch cocktails were invented.

If you mix a pitcher full of cocktails before your guests arrive, everyone can enjoy a cold cocktail without lifting a finger. (Except to pour themselves a drink.)

There’s a big batch cocktail out there for everyone ― from your classic Manhattan to twists like Cider Beer Sangrias. Pick yours:
