No matter what you’re celebrating, this list will have just the drink you’re looking for. 

1. Mojito Pitcher 

Mojitos are a simple and refreshing cocktail that are easy to love. 

Mint, lime, and rum are a deliciously light combination. Make a mint simple syrup for a pitcher cocktail that’s a breeze to make. 

This one is a crowd-pleaser since the flavors are so classic. You might even have to make more than one batch!

2. Tropical Alcoholic Party Punch 

Tropical punch with an alcoholic kick is a definite hit.

The fruity flavors and bubbles from the lemon-lime soda ensure that this is a dangerous drink. 

Sweet lemonade and tropical punch drink mixes are the base of this cocktail.

Using pre-made flavor mixes makes any drink super easy to put together and adds a lot of flavor. 

This drink has a ton of fruit taste and you can even omit the alcohol if you want to. 

3. Vodka Strawberry Lemonade 

This pitcher cocktail will instantly take you back to long summer days.

Fresh lemon juice and strawberries give this cocktail some amazing flavor. It’s tart and just the right amount of sweet.

This cocktail is delightful, but it’s probably best to keep it far away from the lemonade stand. 

4. Pineapple Jalapeño Pitcher Margaritas 

Margaritas are a delicious way to fill up those pitchers on Taco Tuesday. This margarita is super fruity with a spicy kick. 

Pineapple provides the perfect amount of refreshing sweetness to balance the spice from the jalapeños. 

Use a top shelf tequila for a really smooth margarita. Rim the glass with chili lime salt for some extra spice. 

All you need is some chips and guac and you’re ready for a fiesta!

5. Pineapple Punch with Ginger Beer 

Pineapple and citrus are such refreshing flavors. This cocktail combines those delicious flavors with spicy ginger beer in this tasty summer drink. 

Pineapple, orange, and lime are so good together. They’re tart flavors that keep a drink bright and flavorful. 

Rum is a spectacular choice of liquor to go with the citrus and ginger flavors. Ginger beer has just the right amount of spice and bubbles. 

This is a great drink for a cocktail or dinner party. 

6. Pink Sangria with Rosé Wine 

This pretty pink drink is a tasty drink that all your friends will adore. 

Rosé wine, vodka, and lemon lime soda are the base ingredients for this drink.

The vodka adds some extra alcohol and the lemon lime soda adds refreshing bubbles. 

Stir in berries, blood oranges, or any of your favorite red or pink fruits. You can also add some mint for a little extra flavor. 

This is the perfect drink for a bridal shower or “Galentine’s Day” celebration. 

7. Cranberry Pitcher Margaritas with a Spiced Salty Sugar Rim 

This drink is a classic party drink with a touch of holiday cheer. 

Cranberries are a popular ingredient in many foods during the holidays. They make this margarita extra special and delicious. 

Mix cranberry juice with tequila, orange juice, and lime juice. Not only does this drink look beautiful, but it tastes incredible. 

8. Hawaiian Mimosas 

These tropical Hawaiian mimosas are about to be your new brunch bestie. 

Fruity, sweet, and tart pineapple juice replaces the classic orange juice in this drink.

Then, add rum for a tropical twist and top with champagne for that bubbly beverage that we all love. 

You definitely need to be careful with these mimosas. 

9. Pitcher Strawberry Mojitos 

The classic mojito gets a berry good twist with this pitcher recipe. 

This drink stays true to the traditional mint and lime flavors but it’s even better with strawberries. 

White rum is the classic alcohol for a mojito. Use your favorite kind. This is a very light cocktail with simple flavors.

It’s not too sweet since it doesn’t have a lot of sugar. 

This fruity and minty cocktail is a must! 

10. Pacific Empress 

This is one impressive cocktail. I’ve never had a color changing beverage before this. After one or two of them, you’ll be convinced it’s magic. 

Empress 1968 gin is what gives this mystical drink its dark purple color.

It’s made with butterfly pea flowers and the color is sensational. 

If the colors of this drink still haven’t gotten your attention, the pineapple and blackberry flavor combination will! 

11. Classic Pimm’s and Lemonade 

Pimm’s and lemonade is a classic English cocktail.

It’s synonymous with summer weddings and events, and soon, it might be a staple at your parties, too. 

Pimm’s is a gin-based liquor. Combine with chilled lemonade for a simple and light cocktail.

Slap some mint in your hand to release the fragrant oils and add into the iced cocktail. 

Throw in some sliced cucumber, oranges and strawberries to finish this refreshing lemonade cocktail. 

12. Blue Hawaiian Party Punch 

Blue cocktails have always been enticing to me. They just look so pretty and fruity. 

This vodka and rum based punch is perfect for a 4th of July crowd. It has blue Hawaiian Punch and pineapple juice that make it super sweet. 

Top it with cherries, and it’s as spectacular as those fireworks you’re about to watch. 

13. Watermelon Lemonade Prosecco Spritzer 

This tart and bubbly cocktail is fresh and hydrating. It’s perfect for those summer evenings after a day in the pool. 

This Prosecco spritzer has watermelon purée and freshly squeezed lemon juice. It’s tart and sweet at the same time. 

Try adding watermelon ice cubes for a delicious way to keep your drink cool while you sip! 

14. Sparkling Citrus Sangria 

Citrusy, light, and crisp sangria is the perfect party pitcher for any occasion. 

The bright citrus flavors mixed with pineapple make this a stunningly simple drink.

It’s made with Moscato, gin, and ginger ale, and it’s a delicious combo. 

The gorgeous fruit suspended throughout the pitcher is the perfect finishing touch. 

15. Coconut Lemon Sour Party Pitcher 

Coconut and lemon make a scrumptiously balanced and light cocktail beverage. Plus, coconut water is super hydrating! 

This cocktail is a vodka-based pitcher full of yum! The coconut is light and tropical while the lemon is bright and sour. 

This is a must-try drink that’s great for any party!

16. Black Magic Halloween Sangria 

This dark and mysterious cocktail is so good, it’s scary. 

Red wine, vodka, and raspberry liqueur make up the vase of this cocktail. It also has crisp apple cider, which is perfect for the Halloween season. 

Top it off with fruit of your choice. The sangria will infuse with the fruit the longer they’re in there. 

Finally, add some bubbly soda. You can use Sprite or Coca-Cola. This sangria is not as tasty as it is spooky. 

17. Lt. Dan’s Best Bloody Mary Mix  

There’s no drink like a Bloody Mary when you want something spicy instead of sweet.

This tomato sauce and vodka drink has become pretty extravagant in recent years. 

This Bloody Mary can be made and stored for up to 5 weeks. Although, I doubt it will last that long. 

This cocktail is spicy, savory and tangy. You can garnish it with anything you want. Try bacon, grilled shrimp, pickles, or the kitchen sink. 

18. Ocean Breeze Cocktail 

The ocean breeze cocktail is the definition of summer. It’s tart, refreshing, and blue!

This pitcher cocktail is simple with only three ingredients (aside from the garnish). It’s easy to make, hard to mess up, and a breeze to enjoy. 

19. Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade 

Blackberries and lemons are the zesty ingredients that speak to my heart and tastebuds. 

The fruit is muddled together and sweetened with a brown sugar syrup.

Bourbon is the absolute best choice for this drink. It’s smooth with a really nice depth of flavor. 

This drink is a bit more sophisticated than some of the other drinks on this list. It’s great for a dinner party, but still amazing poolside. 

20. Pink Vodka Watermelon Lemonade 

This is a bright and fresh cocktail with an unexpected twist. 

Watermelon purée mixed with lemon juice and vodka is a tart combination of flavors that works so well.

This cocktail is sweetened with a thyme infused honey.

It provides a flavor that you can’t quite put your finger on but you can’t stop sipping!
