THE BEST PARTY PUNCH... EVER.

So this, my friends, is the Best Party Punch... Ever. In all honesty, I posted this punch here a few years ago, but it's so good that it deserved to be posted again with new pictures. I made this punch for the baby sprinkle I hosted this past Saturday and pretty much everyone that had it came up to me and asked me for the recipe. I made this a few years ago for another baby shower I hosted. I did a search online for baby shower punch and ended up piecing together a few recipes that I liked. This one is fresh and fruity with the perfect amount of effervescence. It's also easy to make which is always a huge plus for me when it comes to parties...




Here is what you need and what to do (makes about a gallon):

1 cup frozen concentrated lemonade (thawed)
6 oz  frozen concentrated orange juice (thawed)
2 cups cranberry juice
3 cups water
1/4 cup super fine sugar
2 liters lemon-lime soda, chilled
Freshly sliced lemons and oranges
Ice

Add the lemonade, orange juice, cranberry juice, water and sugar to a container that has a lid. Stir until all of the sugar is dissolved. Cover and chill the mixture for 1-2 hours. When you are ready to serve the punch, add the mixture to a drink server along with the soda, ice, lemons and oranges. Stir and enjoy!

** If you are hosting a party where alcohol is appropriate, then a few splashes of vodka would be really good!!

  11. Is that 2 one-liter or 2 two-liter bottles of soda? Thanks for the clarification.

    1. Sorry for the confusion! One 2-liter bottle is good. They soda is usually sold that way. Two 1-liter bottles would work as well.

    1. One batch can serve a party of about 15 - 20 people depending on the size of the cups...

  16. I saw this on Pinterest (wasn't attributed to you, so I had to Google it to find you, and I have pinned directly from your page so it's right, gosh-darn-it), and the picture was so lovely! I am planning to make it this summer for the porch fellowship we have every Sunday after church, when my turn comes up. Gorgeous and tasty alternative to dry-mix lemonade and Crystal Light tea. And next spring when I'm hosting a bridal shower for my daughter.... Thanks, Tiffany!
