6 Funky Drinks You need to have in Your Cocktail Party

Serving mixed drinks at a party can be a tricky business. You can stand there and mix drinks yourself, but then you’re working all night. You can leave out a bunch of mixers and liquor out, but that’s going to end with all the mixers running out within 30 minutes of your first guest’s arrival. There is only one great solution, and that’s punch, a large-batch mixed drink that you make before the party.
Here are some of the delicious and creative ways to make it:

Strawberry Pisco Punch

This summery strawberry pisco punch is a classic cocktail that showcases the unique flavors of pisco beautifully. Pisco, a South American grape brandy, is a mainstay of well-stocked bars in Peru and Chile.

Brûléed Grapefruit Punch

Memorable cocktails start with memorable flavors, and the sweet-bitter contrast of brûléed grapefruit is about as memorable as they come. This is a punch you and your guests will be talking about, possibly for years to come.

Watermelon-Hibiscus-Lime Margaritas

We live in a time when almost any flavor combination can make its way into a margarita, and in the case of this ultra-refreshing watermelon-hibiscus margarita, that’s a really good thing.

Pineapple Rosé Sangria

Having a perfectly lazy summer afternoon requires having a tight sangria game. If yours needs a little work, try shaking things up a little with some rosé wine and pineapple.

Raspberry-Rhubarb Collins Punch

Fizzy and sweet, this punch variant on the classic Tom Collins goes down easy. And, really, when was the last time you had a drink with rhubarb?

Cider Rum Punch

Sock this one away for the fall, or those days in August when you start fantasizing about wool sweaters. It may not be right for a hot afternoon, but the cider rum punch is absolutely perfect when you want to give your guests something to warm up both body and soul. In a large pot, place apple cider, orange slices, apple slices, cinnamon sticks, and ginger. Pour rum on the top. Stir to combine.
