Want to take the fun out of hosting a holiday party? Spend the whole evening playing bartender.

As festive as it is to offer a delicious cocktail at your party, picking the right mixed drink involves more than just deciding what tastes great and works with your menu. You also want something that can be prepped ahead of time, then set out for guests to serve themselves. That way, your guests can enjoy a drink and you can enjoy your guests.

To keep it simple, we stuck with a pitcher-style cocktail. We start by infusing tequila with cranberries and fresh mint. Then we pair that with a blend of citrus juices for a delicious DIY margarita.
