If you're not in the habit of buying pitchers and you want to save some money, this is a great place to start. It's easily the most budget conscious drink choice you can make at the bar. The worst choice you can make is of course shots. They cost as much as a mixed drink in many places, and they're gone before you can blink. If you frequently end up staring at your bill at the end of the night wondering how the hell you managed to spend so much money, this could be a major factor.
