BIG BATCH BLENDING TIPS

BE CHEAP

Fruity cocktails aren't the place for top-shelf liquor. Buy low-end bottles and save the good stuff for sipping.

FREEZE

Fill a 9-inch round baking pan with lemonade or limeade and some lemon or lime slices and freeze to float in the punch bowl.

START COLD

Chill all your ingredients thoroughly before mixing.

SAVE THE FIZZ

Add bubbly ingredients just before serving.

SET THE BAR

Place cups and ice buckets near the punch bowl, along with garnishes like lemon and lime slices, berries and fresh mint.
