Punches, which could be credited as being the Founding Fathers to the cocktails we know today, were an American fixture that kept us cool through warmer months some 200 years ago. When it comes to serving large groups, nothing compares to the ease of whipping up a boozy punch; it’s just a matter of knowing the right technique.

This is like a piña colada, but much more decadent. Try using ice cream to turn these summer flavors into a rich, creamy drinkable (and, um, spiked) dessert. You'll definitely want to make a double batch.
