Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of making batched cocktails?

Batching cocktails ahead of time can save you a lot of time and effort during service or a party. If you're a party host, do you really want to be making cocktails one-by-one all night while everyone else enjoys themselves? Probably not! If you're a professional, batched cocktails will allow for faster service and happier customers.

How do I determine the right proportions for batched cocktails?

Use the ratios of the original recipe for a single cocktail and scale up. Looking at the Daiquiri, which follows a 2-1-1 ratio, you can scale it up by the bottle: 1 bottle to 1/2 bottle and 1/2 bottle. Just don't forget to dilute 20-15%!

Can any cocktail be batched, or are there specific ones that work best?

Almost any cocktail can be batched. It all depends on how you serve it and how you batch it, which we cover in more depth in this course.

How long can batched cocktails be stored before serving?

This depends on the ingredients. A cocktail using fresh ingredients can last upwards of a couple of days; a spirit-forward cocktail like a Negroni or Martini can last upwards of months because it doesn't contain fresh ingredients that can spoil quickly. However, fresher is always better, so if you can prep the day-of or the night before, that is best.

Do I need special equipment or containers for batched cocktails?

Besides standard equipment like a bar spoon and cocktail jigger, you'll also need larger bottles for mixing or prepping ingredients and larger serving vessels like punch bowls or drink dispensers.

How do I ensure the flavors of the ingredients are well balanced in a batched cocktail?

With a batched cocktail, just follow the ratio of the base recipe because it is an already balanced cocktail; the only difference is that you have to dilute the batched cocktail with water-- that will always be your balancing factor when it comes to batching.

Can I adjust the sweetness or acidity of a batched cocktail after it's been mixed?

Absolutely! Add a small amount of the sweetener or acid already being used, give a stir into the cocktail, and taste. Repeat the process until satisfied with the result.

Can I pre-garnish batched cocktails or should that be done when serving?

To keep garnishes looking and tasting fresh, we recommend saving the garnish for the last step, right before service.

Are there any specific tips for successfully scaling up a cocktail recipe for batching?

Yes! Two things. Always look at the original cocktail recipe as a ratio-- We do this to build sinlge serving cocktails, and you're just scaling up the ratio accordingly for batched cocktails. And always remember to dilute, whether it's with water or ice!

How do I handle the dilution of batched cocktails to ensure the right balance?

The standard dilution rate of any cocktail is about 15-25%, depending on the cocktail. However, for batched cocktails, you're going to want to dilute at least 20-25%, meaning for every 1 L of cocktail, you'll add about 200-250 mL.

What's the best way to serve batched cocktails at a party or gathering?

Depending on your personal preference, a large punch bowl, drink dispenser, or several carafes are perfect for serving batched drinks at a party.

Can I make non-alcoholic or low-alcohol batched cocktails?

Of course! You can go the simple route and sub out the base spirit with a N/A spirit comperable in flavor or a low-ABV liqueur. The ratio would essentially stay the same; however, you'll need to taste it to be sure-- sometimes using zero proof spirits can bring extra sweetness that will then need to be tamped down.
