Pitcher Cocktails

Entertaining is fun, but between cooking, serving, greeting, and cleaning, it’s also a bit of a juggling act. Enter the pitcher cocktail: Mix everything in advance, pop in the fridge, and serve with glasses and ice on the side. Guests can help themselves, the proportions are always right, and you won’t have to spend the entire party mixing margaritas and tracking down martini olives. Bottoms up!

  • Rosé and White Peach Sangria

    Rosé and White Peach Sangria

    Don’t judge a drink by its name. While most sangria is made with the cheapest red wine, a ton of sugar, and a somewhat bizarre mix of fruits, this one isn’t like the rest. It’s a very clean, refreshing combo of rosé, white peaches and nectarines, and fresh basil. Because we don’t add any sugar, you might be surprised by how dry it is. If you’re looking for a touch more sweetness, finish with sparkling lemonade instead of seltzer.

    Pimm's Cup

    This dark, gin-based liqueur has been a staple at cricket matches for ages, but has only recently become readily available in the states. Look for it at Whole Foods, BevMo, or most liquor stores.

  • Palomas


    Our friend Sam made these on the 4th of July this year and showed us just how easy they are to put together. We like to think of them as a cheat’s margarita.

  • Lemon Verbena Lemonade

    Lemon Verbena Lemonade

    Grown-up lemonade with a hint of floral lemon verbena, this might just be your new favorite cocktail. Lemon verbena can be difficult to track down (though it’s easy to grow). It makes wonderful tisanes and ice creams, too.
