Large-Format Red Hook Cocktail

Tyler Zielinski

Whether you’re behind the stick at a high-volume bar or serving guests at a party, both speed and consistency are the key. Premixing and prediluting a large batch of cocktails is the answer to both. Once the batch is mixed and chilled, all you need to do is pour it into a glass. 

Laura Newman, the beverage director at Queen’s Park in Birmingham, Alabama, contributed this large-format version of a Red Hook cocktail. It makes five servings—perfect for capping off a small dinner party or mixing on a Sunday evening to get you through a week’s worth of happy hours at home.
