This holiday party punch recipe is perfect for serving at any holiday gathering. Guests young and old will love this easy party punch recipe.
When it comes to the holidays, more than likely we will be entertaining at some point. We love hosting our friends and family at our home. We love good food and we always have something good to drink. Even if it’s just a small gathering. I always love to mix up something special for our guests. We usually have little guests under the age of 21 so our drinks are all alcohol free. Even though there is no alcohol, this orange cranberry holiday party punch has become one of my favorite easy party punch recipes.
This holiday party punch has all the flavors of the holidays in one delicious sip. Full of cranberry, orange and apple flavors, this party punch is not only delicious, it is pretty too! Especially if you garnish it with all the beautiful fruit of the season. And of course it has to have a little fizz!
Holiday Party Punch
- 1 (64 oz) jug cran-apple juice
- 1 (12 oz) can frozen cranberry juice concentrate - NO Additional water added
- 3 cups orange juice
- Juice of 1 lime (or 2 TBL)
- 2 liters ginger ale
- fruit for garnish - cranberries, apples, oranges, limes
- In a large pitcher mix together cran-apple juice, frozen cranberry concentrate, orange juice and lime juice. This is the punch base.
- Chill the base until ready to serve.
- Just before serving, add ice to punch bowl or drink dispenser.
- Add punch base and then add ginger ale.
- Add any garnishes to punch you like.
I like to start with a strong base mix. So when I use a frozen juice concentrate, I either do not add any additional water that it calls for, or I only add about 2/3 the amount of water called for in the directions. I think the addition of ice and soda can make it taste too watered down when I add the additional water. So I just don’t add it in this recipe.
I just love a good party punch. Whether we have 1 guest or 40, I like to keep things on hand to mix up a fun and fruity drink. I just think they are lots of fun and can add so much to a simple get together.
