Slow cookers meld the flavors of hearty soups and savory stews, and they can do the same for cocktails. A Crock-Pot is the perfect vessel for make-ahead cocktails infused with warm fall spices. “Make sure the Crock-Pot is on a low setting,” says Christoph Dornemann, bar manager at Arnaud’s French 75 Bar in New Orleans, “and have extra stored in the fridge to top off after the Crock-Pot is more than halfway empty.” With guests able to serve themselves, slow-cooker cocktails are like set-it-and-forget-it entertaining.
