Cocktails taste better when they're enjoyed with good company, but rather than craft a bunch of different beverages (I mean, who really wants to be stuck with bartending duty all party long?), make pitcher drinks like sangria, margaritas, and punch.

Here are a few of our favorites, just in time for that pool party, BBQ, or whatever else you have planned for the holiday weekend.
