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.
