Holiday Entertaining - Premixing Cocktails okay?
My husband and I are hosting a dinner party for about ten people in a couple of weeks. I will likely be occupied by preparing the food, as is usually the case, and was wondering what thoughts were about pre-mixing batches of cocktail, so it can be shaken with ice and poured individually as people want it. It would save a bunch of time so that I don't have to stop what I'm doing to prepare and measure each cocktail individually.
Any thoughts? (i.e. - taste will be too different, too tacky, etc...)
