Make multiple batches of your signature cocktail before the party starts. For each batch, mix together everything but the ice and any carbonated ingredients (like Prosecco or soda) and store in a lidded container. Write mixing instructions on a strip of masking tape and affix to each container (e.g., "Mix with 1 quart ginger ale and 2 cups ice"). This way, any guest will be able to help out if the cocktail supply is running low.
Donâ€™t forget the finishing touches! Gorgeous garnishes, from super-simple to extra-artsy, can all be prepared and set out on the bar in advance. Thread Sugared Cranberries or Candied Citrus Peel onto bamboo picks; craft some Candy Cane Reindeer or Santa Swizzle Sticks; or simply set out a tray of citrus slices or cinnamon sticks and let everyone garnish their own glass.
And now, for the drink recipes.
