Patio potlucks and parties are a rite of summer, and whether I'm hosting or I'm a guest there's one I thing I always contribute to make it complete: a pitcher drink that can be sipped all afternoon and into the evening.

From fruity summer sangria to a layered cocktail that's sure to impress, plus a few fresh non-boozy options, here are 20 pitcher drinks to sip all summer long.
