12 Great Pitchers For All Your Warm-Weather Cocktails
It’s time to make a batch of Margaritas.
Written by

Being good at summer is a skill. And part of that skill is knowing which pitchers you need. That might seem weirdly specific - but don’t question it. A quality pitcher will help you turn a casual group hang into a different, better group hang with a jug of Margaritas. Negronis and Manhattans are also great for when you want to make a big batch of drinks, but if you need something a little more festive, try some Rum Punch or a full serving of Bootlegs (a Minnesota original). But first, you need the proper vessel. So here are the best pitchers we’ve found thus far. Some of them of them are fun and colorful, others are plain and minimalist, and one pitcher comes with lid that’s actually a cup.

A Nice Modern Option

Let’s ease our way into this pitcher roundup with something so clean and simple it’s called the Simple Glass Pitcher. Will this look nice on a table in your backyard? Absolutely. Fill it with Negronis or lemonade, and it’ll look even better.

Something Chic And Sustainable

Another lovely minimalist choice, this pitcher from LSA International is made of recycled glass and comes with a big cork stopper. It can also hold over 40 ounces, and the packaging is made from recycled materials as well.

A Pitcher That's Just Festive Enough

Need a hint of color? We understand. Try this summery handblown Jonathan Adler option. It also comes in white, and you can grab some matching highballs to complete your set.

A Casually Elegant Vessel

Colorful, but not too bright or in-your-face about it, this 48oz carafe is elegant in its simplicity and will match any home filled earth tones, plants, and some equally attractive cookware.

The Statement Pitcher

We’ve mentioned this before, but we’ll say it again for emphasis: you should get yourself one of Sophie Lou Jacobsen’s Wave Pitchers. The vibrant, undulating handles alone merit serious consideration, and we’re fans of the color combinations as well (especially the green and yellow).

A One-Of-A-Kind Choice

Also from Sophie Lou Jacobsen, the Bean Pitcher is somehow supremely uncomplicated yet unlike anything else out there. The stout profile will grab your guests’ attention, and the colorful, curved handle will soak up any leftover praise.

The One With A Cup

Here we have a two-in-one option. It’s a carafe made out of recycled glass that comes with a little cup that sits on top. You can use this for water throughout the day, then empty it out and transition to White Negronis around sunset.

Get a Mia Carafe & Tumbler ($42) →

Something Seasonally Appropriate

To us, these pitchers say, “Take me into a backyard with a kiddie pool and trampoline.” They successfully channel the spirit of summer, and the pink one especially is an ideal way to store around six Palomas.

A Pitcher With Just Enough Flair

We’re fans of a lot of the glassware from Ichendorf Milano, and this jug is no exception. Sure, it isn’t very flashy - but that’s part of the appeal. This pitcher is classic, modest, and just about perfect.

A Instant Mood Enhancer

What if you took a plain glass pitcher then put rainbows all over it? You’d get this. And what a difference those rainbows make. Should you find yourself in a bad mood, a batch of Margaritas in this thing could probably fix that.

Get a Sunshine Pitcher ($32) →

The Vase/Pitcher Combo

Yes, we’re into ceramic pitchers as well. Specifically, this big jug from the Danish company Rawwii. It comes in a variety of colors, and you can use it as a vase in between backyard gatherings.

One That's Great For The Fridge

Less of a pitcher and more of a big corked bottle, this container from CB2 is great for when you want to make a batch of something (Watermelon Margaritas, say), then leave it in the fridge for when guests come over. (Just don’t add ice until people are actually ready to drink. That way you can avoid excessive dilution.)
