I would mix in small batches and combine to a large container.  I think if you try and make a 20L batch of sangria you’ll have a hard time getting the concentration right.

I’m not really sure how far in advance you can mix drinks.  I would add fresh fruit at the last minute though.

I don’t have much experience but I agree with pp about making smaller bathches rather then one big batch.  If you are doing punch or lemonade I would just buy them by the gallon at the store and save myself the trouble.  That way you can just poor them in the beverage dispenser as needed.  

For hot cocoa/ cider you probably have to have someone make it just before it needs to be served.

If I was making hot cocoa/Cider for a crowd, I would make them in crock pots.  That way I could have them going all day and not worry about it.  Then have a friend/family member put it in what ever cute container I had for it right before it was served.  There are lots of recipies for it on pintrest.

For flat sangria, you do want to mix it a few days a head of time so the flavors can mingle.  If your recipe has something like Sprite or similar in it or sparkling wine, you will want to wait until the day of otherwise it will go flat.
