What cocktail can I make in advance and serve at a party for thirty-somethings that will go well with pizza?

I'm having a pizza party and would like to have a pitcher of some mixed-drink out that people can help themselves to.
Over the holiday I made this sparkling ginger pineapple punch
and added rum and holy crap it was tasty and perfect for a brunch. I'm tempted to serve it at this pizza party next week too but am thinking that there might be something better out there that will go well with pizza.
I've googled and searched epicurious.com but despite the popularity of pizza as a party and bar food I'm not finding articles or websites that talk about cocktails or "punch" type drinks that mix up really well with it. Maybe lots of people just drink beer with their pizza? We will have beer, and we can also just leave a bunch of booze and mixers out and let people make their own favorite, but some people (me!) don't really like beer and not everyone is a bartender.
So, what do you think? Sparkling ginger pineapple rum punch? Margaritas? Something else?
