The Mixology Talk Podcast, Episode #165
Looking to add punches to your bar program? Join us this week as Chris chats with pro event bartender Rachel Hopkins to learn all about the ins and outs of making and serving large format cocktails behind the bar.
Pre-batching & Punches for Events & Service
Rachel Hopkins is no stranger to large format cocktails. She runs a catering cocktail business from an old trailer that she and her husband renovated for service. (Sneak peek, it’s awesome.)
Rachel loves punches because they perfectly fit her model: the large format drinks are easy to prep in advance, provide great consistency and help keep service moving quickly.

- Why Oleo Saccharum is SO important for punches, and some creative ideas for unconventional “Oleos”
- Tips for extending the shelf life of a punch
