The perks of home bartending in bulk

When company comes calling or you hit that point in the day when you are beyond ready to settle down with an evening sip, there's nothing more convenient than having your go-to cocktail already mixed and waiting. And if you don't happen to have a personal bartender on staff, having a bottle of premade cocktail chilling in your fridge is just about the next best thing. Stirring up a bulk batch of favorite cocktails is as simple as mixing up a single drink—just combine your spirits, and funnel into a bottle for storing. Seriously, all that's left to do is pour, stir, and enjoy.

TIP: If you'll be storing your cocktails for longer than a month, keep in a cool, dark place. Avoid bottling drinks with perishables such as citrus juice and dairy. Stick with spirituous sips.
