Punches and pitcher cocktails are the savior of the busy host. Prepped in advance, these party-sized batches offer an alternative to wine and beer— without the need for shakers, stirrers, or a stocked liquor cabinet. Plan a punch for your next get-together — these recipes each serve 6 or more.
For kids and teetotalers, swap the hooch for seltzer, ginger ale, coconut water... or just leave it out! If you want to add a little zing to the peach punch, consider peach schnapps, peach vodka, or ginger beer.
