PUNCH IT UP

Adapts nicely into a punch. Simply use an ice-filled bowl or large container instead of a shaker and stir. Increase ingredients by equal amounts, adding one part water per five parts Maker’s®. Add ginger beer to each glass just before serving.
MOCK IT UP
When cheers-ing with a nondrinker, these ingredients can be adapted into a delightful holiday mocktail. Just leave out the Maker’s®, of course.
SHAKE & BREAK
Avoid adding fizzy ingredients, like soda and sparkling wine, to your cocktail shaker. These are best poured into your glass as a finisher, just before serving.
DON’T BURST YOUR BUBBLES
A little stir is fine, but overdoing it can decrease the effervescence of your sodas and sparkling wines.
