Guests can have their favorite alcohol mixed
A number of people we know like to have a signature cocktail at their parties. But what if your guest doesn’t want tequila, vodka or whatever you’ve chosen as the base?
Here’s a way to have a holiday cocktail, while letting guests choose their spirit. It can also be used to make a mocktail for those who don’t want alcohol.
You can make a batch with your spirit of choice and pour from a pitcher. Or, you can premix the juices only, and offer guests their choice of spirit: saké, tequila, vodka or white wine.
The original recipe comes from Toy Restaurant in the Gansevoort Hotel in New York City’s Meatpacking District. There, citrus liqueur is the spirit of choice, for a more lemony cocktail.

For a mocktail use lemon or lemon/lime soda (Fresca, 7-Up) instead of the alcohol.
