13 Big-Batch Cocktails for a *MEGA* Good Time

Everyone loves to cool off on the deck with a smashing summer cocktail, especially after a long and taxing week. Instead of making individual servings, think ahead and set yourself up with a jumbo pitcher of sangria. (Or, if you’re a savage, you can just fill a huge glass and toss back a Mega Mule; you do you, babe.) Here are 13 delectably boozy drinks to get your wheels turning and your weekend started.

1. Pimm’s Punch: This magnificent mix delivers hints of cucumber and strawberry to refresh you and sate your sweet tooth. Fill it with chunks of fresh fruit for an added touch of summertime bliss. (via Vegetarian Heartland)

2. Light-Bodied Rosé Sangria With Fruit Tea, Apricots, Blueberries, and Rosemary: A blush rosé and fruity tea come together in this blend to create a fresh and herbaceous sangria you’ll want by your side all summer long. (via Trickytine)

3. Pear Ginger White Sangria: With a mix of pears and spicy ginger, this sweet and zingy sangria will have you snubbing regular ol’ red sangria forever. (via Cake n’ Knife)

4. Sailor Berry Lemonade: Fresh raspberries, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and a very generous splash of spiced rum are what make this pink lemonade superior to the others. (via Tattooed Martha)

5. Cherry Lemonade Slushies: We loved slushies as kids, and we can love them as adults with this cherry vodka-spiked lemonade. (via With Salt and Wit)

6. Piña Colada Punch: Perfect for the patio, this tropical-inspired punch is fizzy, rejuvenating, and served with frozen fruit so you can get a wee dose of nutrients as you indulge. (via Yes to Yolks)

7. Strawberry Rosé Sangria: You cannot go wrong with handfuls of fresh strawberries and a splash of raspberry liqueur. Stir in some rosé, kick back, and enjoy. (via Culinary Cool)

8. Spiked Iced Peach Green Tea: Bring your green tea to a *whole* new level with sweet peaches, a dash of bitters, sparkling water, and a touch of yummy gin. (via Le Petit Eats)

9. Spiked Ginger Lemonade: Ginger and lemons get along swimmingly in general, but when you slam them together into a cocktail with ginger beer and vodka, *magic happens.* (via Whitney Bond)

10. Strawberry Pineapple Punch: This concoction just SCREAMS summer with its fusion of strawberries and pineapple. With a few sprigs of basil, it’s invigorating, spritz-y, and oh-so-tasty. (via What’s Gabby Cooking?)

11. Spiked Peach Punch: The harmonious mix of peach vodka, white rum, lime juice, and ginger ale make this big-batch cocktail worth making over and over (and over) again. (via Sugar and Soul)

12. Fizzy Pineapple Punch: You’re going to want a BIG pitcher for this bad boy, as it combines a fruity mix of frozen pineapple juice, limeade, club soda, assorted fruits, and your choice of vodka or rum. Or both, maybe? (via The Chunky Chef)

13. Pineapple Rum Sangria: With actual chunks of pineapple, white rum, and some soda water for added sparkle, this bevvie will have you stranded on your pool floaty for the best summer afternoon ever. (via Bird’s Party)
