Let’s dive into some of the best-batched cocktails for the holidays. Because when you’re hosting, you want to make things as easy as possible for yourself, but make it the most memorable Thanksgiving for your guests.
Tips for Making Batched Cocktails for Thanksgiving.
Before we get into some of the Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving drink ideas, here are some tips for making the best batched cocktails that your guests are guaranteed to love.
1) Make sure you have enough ice but don’t add it when you’re making the cocktail! I make batch cocktails without ice, store it in the fridge and then once it is ready to be served, take it out, pour it over ice in a cocktail glass, and then serve it to guests. This way the drinks aren’t sitting for hours getting watered down. So, make sure you have enough ice to be able to serve each guest a drink!
2) Know your portions and ratios! When trying to convert a small cocktail recipe into a big batch, I don’t try to convert ounces to cups, it just gets too confusing. Instead, I look at the cocktail’s ratio. For example, this PB&J cocktail recipe has a 2-1 ratio. For one person, aka one cocktail, there are 2 ounces of Skrewball for 1 ounce of raspberry liqueur. So, if I’m having 10 people over, I’ll do 20 ounces of Skrewball to 10 ounces of raspberry liqueur. Most large liquid measuring cups have ounces as a unit, so you’ll have no issue creating a batched cocktail with the perfect measurements.
3) Save the fizz! Similar to ice, if you have any fizz aspect to your cocktail, whether it be club soda or champagne, don’t pour that in when you initially make your batched cocktail. Save it, and pour it into your pitcher right before serving. This will ensure that your cocktail doesn’t fall flat, literally.

Thanksgiving alcoholic drinks can be a really out-of-the-box way to serve your dessert, for those dinner guests who are 21 and over.

2 oz. Skrewball Whiskey
1 oz. Black Raspberry Liqueur
⅛ tsp Salt
1) Based on your guest list, determine your measurements for your batch cocktail.
2) In a large pitcher, pour in your Skrewball, liqueur and salt. Stir to combine and cover tightly with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
3) Once ready to serve, set out the number of glasses you’ll need. Fill with ice and pour a 3 oz. serving in each glass.
4) Stir each cocktail in the glass with the ice, that’ll water it down a bit so it’s more of a cocktail and less of a potent shot.
5) Serve to your guests and enjoy!
