I love throwing parties. I hate how much work it is to throw a party. So over the years I've picked up a few shortcuts to make the job a little easier. My favorite of which is: pitcher drinks. You can make them the night before, pop them in the fridge, and the next day your guests can drink to their hearts' content while you sit back and relax.

Strawberry Basil Margaritas

Easy Pitcher Cocktail Recipe: Strawberry Basil Margaritas 1 can ounces) frozen limeade concentrate 10 strawberries (or 12 if you're using smaller ones from the farmer's market or your backyard.) 8 basil leaves 2 to 2 cups tequila (gold or silver)

Watermelon Margaritas    3 cups fresh seedless watermelon pulp  1 cup fresh lime juice  2 cups simple syrup  1 1/2 cups premium silver tequila  1/2 cup triple sec  3 cups ice    Place watermelon in a bowl and use a potato masher to extract as much juice as possible. Transfer pulp and juice to a pitcher and add lime juice, simple syrup, triple sec and tequila. Stir. Add 3 cups of ice and refrigerate   for 30 minutes. Stir and serve over ice.
