5 Holiday Cocktails for a Crowd

Hosting a party can too often mean playing bartender all night long; this season, put down the shaker and satisfy thirsty guests in one fell swoop with one of five pitcher cocktails hand-selected by mixologist Jim Meehan. From the cassis-spiked El Diablo to an elegant green tea punch, each simple recipe is based on a classic drink and uses a different spirit, so there’s something for every palate—plus, they look gorgeous in our favorite glassware for the season.
