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