Summer means entertaining which also means we’re always in search of large-batch recipes we can whip up in no time. We have three requirements when it comes to pitcher cocktails. Obviously, they should be delicious; It’s the height of fresh fruit season which makes the cocktails extra refreshing. Second, they should be easy; no one wants to spend their time behind the bar at summer get togethers! Lastly, they should be crowd pleasers. Now grab your pitcher and get ready, here are our 5 favorite pitcher cocktail recipes to enjoy this summer!
