Making Big Batches for Big Crowds

In this blog post, we're breaking down three ways to make big batches for holiday entertaining. Enjoy these three recipes for the season! 

The Simple Ratio

Our method is simple; 2oz. of spirit, 1oz. of Iconic Mixer, 1/2oz of tart. This ratio can be easily expanded out to make a simple and delicious punch. Think of it this way:

  • 2 c. of spirit
  • 1 c. of Iconic Mixer
  • ½ c. of tart (lemon, lime, grapefruit juice)
  • 2 c. of sparkling water

    Makes 8-10 servings

This is the start of a well-balanced cocktail that can be made one time and served to your guests with ice. We encourage you to be creative! Add fresh fruit and herbs for garnish, use tea instead of sparkling water, or replace it with sparkling wine for an extra kick.
