Definitely doing Sangria. It's kinda become a go to staple for our get togethers. We always try a new recipe, but it's awesome however.
My plan is usually to run about an hour late, and let everyone have 2 or 3 drinks in them. The booze, plus the guest's hunger, has got me through so far!
Last year we had people gathered around the firepit to about 2am. Not quite like the old days, but a total blast nonetheless!
