Need good ideas for premixed cocktails I can make?

I am having a Christmas party this Friday. Beer will be supplied, wine too. I am also making lychee martinis (one bottle of vodka to 2 cans of lychee w/ syrup). I will not have a bartender, so I need other simple ideas like the lychee martini. Thanks in advance

    YUMMMMM ... Cranberry Amaretto Kiss ...

    2 cups cranberry juice cocktail

    1 cup orange-infused vodka

    1/2 cup amaretto

    3 tablespoons fresh orange juice

    The above makes about 8 cocktails - but you can double, triple, whatever you'd like and keep in a pitcher. After pre-mixing, just shake with ice before pouring into a glass, and serve garnished with maraschino cherries.

    This has a beautiful holiday color, too, like the red on a candy cane.

    Since your using vodka as the base alcohol I would stick with fake martinis. Buy a mixer from the store like Blue Raspberry, Green Apple, Watermelon. Now I like my martinis strong so do 1 part vodka to 1 part mixer. My partner and friends like it sweeter so they make it with 1 part vodka to 2 parts mixer. The mixers are like $6 at the store and make a good 8 martinis i believe. hope this helps!

    Easiest drinks to make are spritzers:

    Champagne spritzer: one part champagne + one part your favorite juice (i love orange or apple juice)


    Malibu spritzers: one part rum + two part pineapple juice + a splash of cranberry juice and seltzer

    These two recipes are cheap, foolproof and incredibly easy. Just buy a bottle of the liquor and buy equal or twice amount of juice. Mix, chill, and serve.
