Don't settle for jungle juice – try these recipes instead.

Reach for a drink that’s a little classier at next weekend’s party. Not only will you like the taste, but you’ll feel much better the next morning.

1. Coconut Orange Punch: Already miss the warmer months? Pull on your floral Hawaiian button-down shirt and try this tropical drink. Leis are optional.

1 liter Sunny Delight
2 liters Sunkist
1 bottle strawberry wine
1/2 bottle 151 Rum
1/2 liter Malibu coconut rum
2 cups pineapple chunks

2. Kool Lime Aid: There’s nothing like Kool Aid to bring back childhood memories. Now that you’re 21, why not throw in a couple handles of cherry Smirnoff for drinking with a large group of friends?

2 handles cherry Smirnoff
2 cans limeade concentrate
2 liters Sprite
2 cans cherry Kool Aid

3. Vodka Lemonade: Upgrade your standard vodka-cranberry for less than $5.
