There’s an art to throwing a great cocktail party. The right mix and number of people, tasty appetizers, a curated playlist to set the tone. But the most important part of your party are the cocktails.

The secret to a successful soiree is making memories that don’t require a lot of work on your part. After all, you want to mingle with your guests, not play bartender the whole evening. 

This is where batched cocktails come in. I recently threw an afternoon holiday party where I had a cooler full of hard seltzers and other beverages, but I also made two large batches of drinks the evening before and the morning of: boozy eggnog and apple cider that I left simmering on a large pot throughout the party. Both were a hit, and neither required any attention from me. Guests helped themselves throughout the party, and I got to spend my time catching up with friends.

For your holiday get-togethers, here are three batch cocktail recipes that will surely take your party to the next level.
