4. Prep Meals Ahead Of Time
Don’t keep the meal prep to the last minute. If you want to be part of the brunch party and mingle with your guests it’s important to ensure that you aren’t sweating out in the kitchen.

Additionally, if your budget allows you can hand over the food and drinks to a caterer and sit back and relax.

If you don’t want to spend all your time behind the bar, try batching cocktails. Batched cocktails are a great way to save time as it allows you to craft drinks in bulk and all you gotta do is serve. Another idea is to set up a self-serve cocktail bar. This way, your guests will have a chance to mix their own brunch cocktails and customise them the way they like them. You just need to ensure there are enough bar tools, spirits, mixers and garnishes to craft some easy-to-mix cocktails.
