Simple punches are a great way to start if you haven't made large batch cocktails before. You just pick a simple white rum, and add fruit juices and allow sliced fruit pieces to float in the punch bowl with the cocktail. You get to be creative with both the stuff you put in the punch, but how you present it with the floating fruit garnishes.
It doesn't matter if your summer party is by the pool, on the patio or the back of the boat, a good large batch cocktail will allow you to enjoy the party along with your guests. Here is an idea for a great summer cocktail that will lend itself nicely to a large batch preparation.
