Whether you’re hosting a summer backyard barbecue, a birthday party, or a bridal shower, making a big batch cocktail or pitcher drink is such a fun and easy way to treat your guests. We’ve created three Sparkling Pitcher Drink recipes to share, all featuring fresh fruit and Sparkling Ice®. In just ten minutes, you can whip up any one of these recipes. There’s a cocktail fave, along with two delicious mocktails that really are so great for summer.
It’s so easy making pitcher drinks using Sparkling Ice, and we love there’s no sugar added in the 16 flavors. We also love that there’s just the right amount of fizz. You can find all the Sparkling Ice flavors at Safeway, along with all the simple ingredients. And if you’re looking for more summer fun activities, see here…
Orange Mango Mocktail Pitcher Drink
Here’s a refreshing pitcher drink that the whole family can enjoy. It’s perfect for a summer barbecue—Sparkling Ice Orange Mango, fresh oranges and pineapple juice.
3 bottles of Sparkling Ice Orange Mango
2-3 fresh oranges, sliced (naval, cara cara and blood oranges are great)
¼ cup pineapple juice
Fresh mint for garnish
3 cups of ice
Pour pineapple juice in pitcher, followed by Sparkling Ice Orange Mango bottles. Add ice and orange slices. Serve over ice.
Kiwi Strawberry Vodka Lemonade Pitcher Drink
This is a great pitcher drink cocktail to serve at a ladies’ brunch. It’s the prettiest pink and looks beautiful topped with strawberry slices and fresh mint. And this drink recipe can easily be modified to be non-alcoholic.
3 bottles of Sparkling Ice Kiwi Strawberry
8 oz. vodka
¼ cup of fresh lemon juice
6 strawberries, thinly sliced
Fresh mint for garnish
Pour lemon juice in pitcher, followed by Sparkling Ice. Top with three cups of ice and lemon slices. Garnish drinks with mint leaves and strawberry slices. Serve over ice.
Black Raspberry and Lime Mocktail Pitcher Drink
This pitcher drink is loosely inspired by one of our favorites: the mojito. Lime, sweetness from honey, and fresh mint pair perfectly with sparkling black raspberry.
3 bottles of Sparkling Ice Black Raspberry
¼ cup fresh lime juice
1 T honey
Pour fresh lime juice, honey, and mint leaves into bottom of pitcher and stir to combine. Add bottles of Sparkling Ice Black Raspberry and top with three cups of ice. Garnish drinks with mint leaves and lime slices. Serve over ice.
There are so many possibilities when you are mixing up sparkling pitcher drinks. You can go cocktail or make a non-alcoholic one and serve as a fun mocktail.
