    1. Sparkling Grapefruit Watermelon Sangria

    Featuring Prosecco and soda water. But (guess what I'm going to say here): you could always just add extra sparkling wine instead of the soda water... Here's the recipe.

    2. Grapefruit Negronis

    Double the recipe if you want to fill a bowl, instead of a pitcher (that goes for any of these recipes that are served in pitchers). Here's the recipe.

    3. 4-Ingredient Pineapple Rum Punch

    3 ingredients if you skip the fresh pineapple. Here's the recipe.

    4. Pear and Ginger White Sangria

    The key to the best sangria is to let it sit in the fridge for a few hours so all the flavors can ~blend~. Here's the recipe.

    5. Sherbet Rosé Spritzer Punch

    Four ingredients to fabulous. Here's the recipe.

    6. Patriotic Jello Shot Cake

    7. Blackbeard Berry Sangria with Absinthe

    8. Raspberry-Strawberry Beer Punch

    With vodka, so you know it's boozy enough. Here's the recipe.

    9. Watermelon Gin Punch with Mint

    10. Mango Cointreau Sangria with Lemonade and Rum

    15. Sweet Tea Punch with Peaches and Raspberries

    You could add a pour of peach liqueur to make it extra fruity. Here's the recipe.

    16. Sparkling Pear Prosecco Punch with Cranberry Juice
