Chic Pitcher-Drinks for Outdoor Entertaining

Nothing says summer quite like outdoor entertaining. We cater a ton all summer long in the Hamptons (book July 4 asap!), and I like to keep things simple and breezy when I host. This means not stressing out with complicated dishes and drinks.

Refreshing mixed cocktails that can be prepared in one large pitcher are easy and delicious--and, by adding an assortment of fresh fruit slices, the pitcher becomes a beautiful centerpiece, bringing a pop of color to your table.

Here are some great pitcher-drink recipes, and below that a few gorgeous pitchers to show off that favorite summertime elixir. What are some of your favorites?
