Quick Fixes for Perfect Celebratory Cocktails to Save Your Party

I still use the tricks I learned all the time, whether I am batching portions of a cocktail behind the bar at the Simple Goodness Sisters Soda Shop to help our baretnders serve the line quickly, or I am having friends over at home. 

I batch my cocktails ahead of time, sometimes I serve them in pitchers or self serve bars, or, I set up an interactive DIY bar as both a drink station and an activity for guests. 

After all, when I am hosting there is probably some bread to replenish, a water gun to fill, a request for a bandaid to address.
