Pass a batch of peach margaritas around the table with some friends at Anejo this week.
Bigger isn’t always better, but when it comes to enjoying a cocktail with friends, it’s nice to have something that can sustain. Here are six big-batch cocktails that are perfect for a group. After all, sharing is caring.
Anejo Peach Margaritas
Resisting the urge to have a second margarita at this tequila-focused establishment is futile. So, you may as well order a pitcher of this sweet, peachy beverage for you and your friends.

Bear Street Tavern Top of the Morning Punch (Banff)
It’s definitely worth the drive out to Banff to enjoy a big bowl of this drink, made with Chambord, tequila, pineapple juice, grapefruit and soda. Ringing in at only $27, it’s by far the best bang for you buck on this list.

Libertine Red Sangria
Red wine, triple sec, orange juice, pineapple juice, a few secret ingredients and some big handfuls of fresh fruit for good measure and you have the perfect, “Thank God we’re done work for the day!” drink to share with co-workers on Stephen Avenue.

Los Chilitos Banana Sexy
If only for the name, order a fishbowl of this drink made with banana and strawberry slush that’s appropriately boozed up with rum. It’s not technically a batch cocktail, but it’s good for sharing for two. Besides, one person shouldn’t be drinking this much slurpee all by themselves.

Poolside by Hotel Arts Pineapple Mojitos
If you’re lucky enough to snag a table by the pool here, celebrate with this drink, made with Appleton’s white rum, pineapple, fresh lime juice and mint. There’s a lot more by the pitcher here, too, like a Chartreues Lemonade or a Celery Pimms Cup.

Vin Room White Sangria
Sitting on the upstairs patio at this wine-centric restaurant in Mission is always a great idea. An even better idea? Ordering a pitcher of this refreshing sangria, made with prosecco, brandy and more to keep yourself cool.
