How about a big fruity party punch?

There was also a Food52 contest for your Best Punch that may give you some ideas.

Planter's Punch! It's a favorite summer drink of ours and is great made in large quantities. Here's a recipe I love:

Mai-Tais are one of my favorite beach-y drinks. In order to make the process easier you can premix everything in a large pitcher or two and just shake with ice and strain as need be! They will taste just as delicious.

Here's the recipe and booze that I have been using:
1 oz Jamaican Rum - Appleton Estate V/O

1 oz Martinician Rhum - Mount Gay Eclipse Gold

0.5 oz Orange Curacao - Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao (do not use the cheap triple sec as it will ruin the drink. Pardon the elitism.)

0.75 oz Lime Juice - Freshly squeezed of course

0.5 oz Orgeat - Should be relatively easy to find at your local grocery store. There really is no substitute for it either.

0.25 oz Simple Syrup - dissolve equal parts sugar in water or I just use light Agave syrup if in a rush.

Mix all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain over crushed ice, garnish with a lime shell and a sprig of mint. Those mini umbrellas should feel right at home in this concoction.

Happy partying!

Uh-oh, it added before I had a chance to add the question. I'm throwing an (indoor, winter) beach party next week, and need some ideas for easy-to-make and/or cheap beachy drinks to serve a crowd of ~20 (mini-umbrella compatibility preferred). Any recommendations/recipes?
