Need recs: GREAT bbq cocktails to serve in bulk?

Maya | Jul 12, 2013 09:43 AM

We are having a big backyard BBQ at the end of the summer to celebrate multiple milestone birthdays. On the menu will be pork ribs, tri tip and fried chicken, along with grilled veggies, green salad, etc. The birthday boys are self-described cocktail conoisseurs.

We have procured 5 drink dispensers for this grand occasion. One will be water, the other fresh lemonade, and the other three we want to fill with excellent cocktails, not too sweet, refreshing and festive.

We have a garden full of fresh herbs and we make fancy simple syrups and bitters quite a bit, so we are comfortable with random ingredients (also, living in the Bay Area we seem to have access to virtually whatever craziness we can dream up). They just need to be good with the food, OK to make in large quantities, and good in these large dispensers (ie not made to order).

Preferred booze bases are vodka, bourbon, gin, rum. Any recommendations for GREAT cocktails that fit the bill?

Thanks wise CHers!
