Let’s all be honest here: the reason we don’t enjoy cocktails at home as much as we do when we go out is because there’s a lot of work involved in making just one simple drink. That’s why we usually reach for wine or a beer. But there’s a solution: big batch cocktails.

Big batch cocktails provide a bigger reward for the amount of work you put into mixing. Depending on how big your batch is, the rewards could be tenfold. Genius, right? Here are a few recipes to get you started. But really, with the right sized pitcher, most cocktail recipes can be multiplied to make a batch. Cheers!
