Offering to make your guests drinks is very nice and just plain good hosting. What’s not nice is being chained to the bar mixing your twentieth Negroni (or Manhattan or gin and tonic...). Enter batch cocktails: the compromise between putting in effort... but not that much effort. After all, who wants to work at a Labor Day party? Before your friends arrive, check out these 16 tasty, scalable cocktails and mixers that will look pretty in a punch bowl.
Click the heart, it's called favoriting. Favorite the stuff you like. Save and organize all of the stuff you love in one place. Imagine Napoleon III invites you to a fancy dinner: It’s this huge feast with all kinds of stately people—the kind of thing you’d wear a gown to. Now imagine what’s being served: Mountains of French cheeses, soup courses, many filets of many kinds of meats, so many things en croute. It’s all very grand. You’d probably assume there’d be butter too. Because, France.
Click the heart, it's called favoriting. Favorite the stuff you like. Save and organize all of the stuff you love in one place. It’s a cartoon we’ve all seen a million times: There’s a fairly well dressed man walking along, and he’s aloof—and then he’s up-ended, arms flailing, legs following into the air. Maybe he has those little motion lines underneath him, tracing where his feet were before they left the ground.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
