This weekend, whether you’re heading to the beach with your picnic basket or hunkering down with friends and family in your own backyard, you’ll want to ensure your food and drink supplies won’t run low. (But mostly, the drink supplies.) We suggest you leave the elaborate craft cocktails to the mixologists and focus instead on making big, refreshing, fruit-filled pitchers that won’t run dry after two or three pours. From sweet sangria to a tart, booze-free lemonade, here are our best big-batch drinks for your Memorial Day celebration.

Memorial Day is right around the corner, and if you’re looking for some recipes to add to your weekend BBQ, look no further than your favorite Food Network chefs.

Then head over to the Hudson Valley, where Eddie Jackson joins Nancy Fuller in the kitchen, making some grilled favorites like Sweet and Sticky BBQ Beef Ribs and Fried Ice Cream with Cereal Crust.
On Sunday morning Tia Mowry and her dad, Tim, are grilling up some of their Hawaiian favorites: juicy short ribs, orange-scented rice and more. Then Tiffani Thiessen is planning a Texas-style birthday bash for her husband, Brady, complete with fall-off-the-bone Brisket and savory baked beans. After that, Bobby Flay is cooking a “buzz”-worthy brunch of honey-centric recipes like Chocolate Chip-Pistachio Pancakes with Salted Honey Caramel Syrup and crisp Honey-Bourbon Glazed Bacon.

Breakfast’s long-held status as the most-important meal of the day has come into question in recent years, with studies suggesting the morning meal may not be as essential as it’s cracked up to be. Yet that doesn’t seem to be diminishing Americans’ commitment to it. Quite the contrary, in fact.
