When you're hosting a party, the last thing you want to do is spend time making individual cocktails for your guests. The more practical move is to whip-up a large batch of a boozy punch or sangria beforehand, so you can spend less time playing bartender and more time with your friends. In the chillier months, warm up around the fire with eggnog recipes fit to serve a group. Our best cocktails for a crowd have something for every season, whether it's a summer favorite like a frozen margarita, or a fall classic like chilled cider punch. Next time you're throwing a party, consult these recipes to be the ultimate host without having to stand behind the bar all night.
