Confession: I consider pitchers the underdog of the entertaining world. Yes, I’m serious! When prepping for a get together, the focus is always on the glassware, linens, platters and serving dishes. But don't be fooled. Whether you’re hosting a brunch, lunch, cocktail party or sit-down dinner, pitchers can be the true unsung hero—especially when hosting a large crowd.
Why you ask? Well, these versatile champions are the ultimate hostess. They open their spouts to water, lemonade, margaritas, smoothies, bloody Mary's—you name it. Who doesn't love a pretty mimosa bar with fresh juices lined up in shiny glass pitchers?! And best part? Wait for it...when all of your guests simultaneously take their last sip, they are their own bartender and can refill themselves! (Read: Pitchers take some of the pressure off of you.) And as we saw on last night's episode of Cyrus vs. Cyrus Design and Conquer, you have enough on your plate when guests are visiting!
So the next time you have a party, consider prepping some pitchers with your signature go-to cocktails for the bar and water for the table. Believe me, during your bash, when you are sitting back, chatting and enjoying your drink, you will thank me. Which brings us to the ultimate question: Pitcher pitcher, short or tall, who is the fairest of them all? Well, quite frankly we couldn't decide on one, but we did manage to narrow it down to our 20 faves for you to check out below. Happy hosting, friends!
