Summery cocktail recipes to make in batches and share with your besties.
There’s an unspoken rule that you can’t have a summer get-together without having a pitcher of drinks. It sets the mood and creates a shared drink experience. There’s nothing better than sitting around with your close friends and family and having a tasty, Summery cocktail.
Take a look below for some yummy cocktail recipes that can be made in batches for easy sharing. And we’re even including the non-alcoholic versions as usual, for our Sober Sisters. Enjoy!
Watermelon Rum Punch
Watermelon is a yummy treat that seems to end up at all summer BBQs. This is a different way to include it on the menu instead of in a salad or cut into chunks.
Lisa from Simple Joy creates this Watermelon Rum Punch. You’ll combine watermelon with pineapple and white rum for a tropical sweet drink that your friends will love.
Alcohol-free alternative: Simply keep the rum out of the pitcher, and you’ll have a delicious summery, sweet punch to drink.
Strawberry Peach Sangria
Sangria is always such a yummy treat. The fruit pieces in sangria add a nice pop of flavor at the end and a nice pop of color in white wine.
Lexi and Beth from Crowded Kitchen create this Strawberry Peach Sangria. Elderflower liqueur elevates this drink and gives it a slightly floral taste that everyone will rave about.
Alcohol-free alternative: Swap out the wine and liqueur for white grape juice. You’ll have a summery, cool drink to consume.
Blood Orange Bourbon Smash
Blood oranges are an unexpected drink flavor that make a great conversation starter at a get-together. Increase this recipe based on how many servings you’re looking to create.
Jazzmine from Dash of Jazz creates this delightful Blood Orange Bourbon Smash. If you’re not normally a bourbon drinker, you’ll still want to try this drink. The blood orange provides a sweetness that cuts the taste of the bourbon.
Alcohol-free alternative: Take out the bourbon and add a La Croix or other similar sparkling water drink. Now you have a refreshing bubbly drink perfect for a BBQ.
Summer Peach Tea Cocktail
If you love peach tea as much as I do, you’ll love this cocktail twist inspired by the yummy summer drink. Nothing beats peach tea on a sweltering hot day.
Amanda from Maple and Thyme creates this Summer Peach Tea Cocktail recipe. Honey is what gives this drink a nice sweetness. The fresh mint adds an adorable touch and delicious subtle flavor.
Alcohol-free alternative: You can omit the vodka and liqueur in this drink – you’ll still have a delicious peach iced tea drink.
Strawberry Mint Moscow Mule
Creating drinks that add in fresh herbs is a nice touch that makes any drink feel personalized. These Moscow Mules include a little bit of additional sweetness from the strawberry inclusions.
Sharon from Cupcakes and Cutlery creates this Strawberry Mint Moscow Mule. Multiply the ingredients by six servings so you can share them with your gal pals.
Swap the vodka out for club soda or add in ginger ale for a pepped-up drink.
We hope you love these concoctions! Get all your gal pals together and have a blast!
