This ice cold cocktail features pretty basic ingredients, but you’ll love every sip.

If you like piña coladas…you’ll love this punch recipe.
Made with cream of coconut and fresh pineapple juice, it’s fully loaded with natural fruity flavors.
The coconut cream also gives it a delightful creaminess that’s absolutely heavenly.

The ice rings take a bit of planning (so they have time to freeze), but it’s so worth the extra effort!
Pretty in pink, this lemonade and Prosecco punch is just what you need for your next brunch or Galentine’s party.

Bursting with yummy citrus flavor and plenty of icy creaminess, this lime punch is such a nice change from the usual fruity drinks.

Of course, it’s not just watermelon and berries. You’ll add lime juice for a zippy finish that enhances the fruits beautifully.

Peaches are insanely sweet and juicy. And since they’re in season during the summer, it only makes sense to turn them into punch!

How fun is that?
Moscow mule fans! This one’s for you!
Just like the classic, you’ll need vodka (Tito’s is my fave), fresh lime juice, and ginger beer.
I like alcoholic ginger beer because I think it’s got more flavor. But feel free to use ginger ale if you want it lighter.
14. Giggle Juice
Fizzy cocktails are always fun, and this one makes a fantastic addition to any party or backyard bash.
Pink, bubbly, and tart, this wine cocktail will quickly earn its name.
Vodka and Moscato wine bring the kick, while pink lemonade and lemon-lime soda bring the flavor.
Giggle juice is a terrific signature wedding cocktail. It’s also a lovely choice for a bachelorette party.
Pink lemonade punch is made from simple ingredients, but the flavors are classic and delightful.
Country Time pink lemonade has a special place in my nostalgic heart. It also makes a heavenly base for cocktails.
Regular vodka works but use pink lemonade vodka if you can find it. Don’t skip out on this one!
Mango and pineapple are a match made in tropical heaven. And since this punch is virgin, everyone can have a glass.
And although it’s ideal for summer, this cocktail will easily pull you out of any seasonal depression.
It’s like sunshine in a glass and tastes better than you could imagine!
17. Champagne Punch
Champagne punch is a fantastic celebratory cocktail you’ll want to bust out for special occasions.
Between the Cointreau and pineapple juice, it’s citrusy, fruity, and pleasantly tart.
If you go for Champers, I suggest serving it with bright raspberries. But it’s just as yummy with Prosecco or Cava (and cheaper, too!).
Rosé is all the rage, and it’s quickly turned into the drink of the summer.
But if you macerate some strawberries in a little bit of sugar, then blend them up and pour the puree over rosé, it’s even more addictive.
Top it off with bubbly soda for something genuinely delightful.
19. Margarita Punch
I think this is my favorite summer punch on the list. I’m a margarita gal, after all!
And this makes serving a crowd so much easier!
Citrus flavors with tequila and some bubbly soda will be an instant crowd-pleaser. You may even love this more than your usual marg.
No matter the occasion, you can’t go wrong with a margarita punch.

Whiskey sours are another classic cocktail that usually come by the glass but work really well in batches.
Just mix and let your guests serve themselves.
A traditional bourbon base is the way to go with this punch. When combined with fresh citrus juices and lemonade, it’s too good to miss.
Besides mango, I’ll order anything and everything that’s got passion fruit in the mix. And that goes double for cocktails!
