3 Refreshing Drink Recipes to Make in a Big Batch

We love the idea of creating a signature drink to serve at your hot tub get-together. Making up a big batch of something amazing will free you to mix and mingle with your guests instead of running back and forth to the kitchen to grab more ingredients or beverages.

Serve these in a big self-serve container, and guests can help themselves. 

Provide ample garnishes (pineapple, strawberries, maraschino cherries, lime wedges) and plenty of ice so guests can customize their drinks and have a little snack if wanted. 

  1. Tropical Punch. Combine the following in a big pitcher filled with ice:
  • 2 (12 oz) cans of frozen mango orange juice
  • 1 (46 oz) can of pineapple juice
  • 3 cups water
  • ½ cup cream of coconut
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 4 (16oz) bottles of 7UP or Sprite

Garnish this with a cherry, lime slice, pineapple, or all three! Mixing the juices, letting them chill beforehand, and adding the soda right before serving may also be helpful. 

  1. Non-Alcoholic White Sangria. Combine all ingredients and chill for at least one hour before serving:
  • 1 lemon (sliced)
  • 1 orange (sliced)
  • 5-7 strawberries (sliced)
  • 10-15 green grapes
  • 8-10 mint sprigs
  • 20 blueberries
  • 12 oz white grape juice
  • 12 oz orange juice
  • 24 oz sparkling water

Garnish this classic with any of the included fruits or extra mint.  Note that adding ice to this drink (or any) will cause it to become watery. 

  1. Mint Lemonade Spritzer.  
  • 8 (12 oz) cans of lemon sparkling water
  • 1 (96 oz) container of lemonade
  • 48 mint leaves

Combine these ingredients in your pitcher and chill until ready to serve. You can also add some lemon slices to make things beautiful. 

4 Easy and Refreshing Drink Recipes Quick to Create

Sometimes it is fun to offer one or two easy-to-mix mocktails that are sure to beat the heat and refresh your guests.

  1. Virgin Mojito
  • Fresh Lime Juice (1 part)

  1. Roy Rogers. This mocktail is a super sweet but classic option that we couldn’t leave off the list, so there isn’t a sour component.
