We're in peak grillin' and chillin' season, and the best way to get a party started is with an abundance of booze. Go ahead and spike the punch. It’s perfectly acceptable at an end-of-summer party — unlike when you’re at prom. Below, we've rounded up some of our favorite spiked-punch recipes.

Try the Sunrise Punch (pictured above) — a rum-based drink that is slightly creamy from coconut milk and stays ice-cold thanks to frozen pineapple and strawberries — and get more ideas for your party with our collections of fruity alcoholic drinks and our best summer cocktails.

Don't let the pink hue deceive you — this fruity drink really packs a punch. The potency of two types of rum (light and dark) is masked by the sweetness of passion fruit, orange and pineapple juices.
