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.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    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.

  12. I love this idea. The pink lemonade almost looks to pretty to drink. ; )

  15. if I double the recipe, how many oranges and lemons would i need? and how much ice to add so it doesn't get watered down?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Did you double the recipe? Curious how many oranges and lemons you used. How much ice did you use?

      Delete
    2. You can use 1 or 2 oranges and the same amount of lemons. They slightly flavor the punch and are used as a garnish. Use just enough ice to make it cold - maybe 2 cups or so.

  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!

  17. I'm going to take this to a friends house, how much does it make ? a gallon ?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Curious, how much it makes? should I use a gallon container?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love your beverage dispenser! Can you share where you bought it? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Do you think you could substitute Splenda for the sugar?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Tried and delicious!! Everyone loved it. I didn't add the sugar or any sweetener.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Do you use 100% cranberry juice or a cran juice with added sugar? I ask because I know cran juice on its own can be pretty tart and just wanted to be sure. Thanks! :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I just used the regular cranberry juice for this recipe. You can certainly use the 100% cranberry juice and adjust the amount of sugar if needed.

      Delete
  23. And when It says frozen concentrate thawed-- that means you aren't adding any water to it to actually make a lemonade? You are solely adding just the concentrate?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I made this for a bridal shower that I hosted today. It was amazing. Everyone that drank some complimented. Thank you for sharing. This will be my go to punch!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Has anyone tried adding Champagne or Sparkling wine to this punch? What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Has anyone ever tried using fruit punch or any other type of juice besides cranberry? I only ask because I've already got the Simply Fruit Punch on hand, and I'd rather not buy another juice. But I also don't want to mess up the flavor!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. HI Liz! I would add everything to the juice except for the cranberry juice. Then test a little sample of it using the juice you have on hand to see if you like it. Hope that works!

  27. I made this for my sons first birthday party, but I made a few adjustments and one BIG mistake.
    1. I added pink lemonade as well.
    2. I added frozen organic fruit (raspberries, cranberries, blueberry, cherry and strawberry)
    3. I made HUGE ice cubes to keep it cooled with out watering down too much.
    My one BIG mistake... I did not make enough!!!! I made a double batch thinking people would also want water instead or as well. NOPE!!! This was so yummy to everyone is went in the first 30 mins.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can't wait to make this, I am having adults over so I want to add the vodka. I already have whipped vodka, I am wondering if I should use that or use plain vodka? Also wondering if I should still use the water, or change anything? Can I not add the sweetener or sugar? I just want to make sure I make it so it's as delicious as it looks and sounds, Thank you...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Coleen! I would probably use plain vodka so that the texture would be right. I think the water and sugar are definitely necessary, but I think you could play around with out much or how little you add. Hope this helps!

      Delete
  29. Do you recommend 7up, Sprite or just generic lemon lime soda? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  30. I will double the recipe, separately, and make ice cubes out of one batch, so it won't be watered down.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Can you make this the night before and just let it chill in the fridge over night? Then just add the soda, ice, lemons and oranges before serving the next day?

  33. Does this punch come out looking light pink like your pictures, or is it more of a deep pink or reddish color?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello! It starts out being a light red color and will lighten as it sits if you use ice to chill it. Enjoy!

      Delete
  34. I made it this evening and substituted martinelli's for the lime soda and it was spectacular. Definitely recommend it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I used this for my daughter's wedding last year and filled a 4 gallon container at least twice for the reception. It was a hit. I took it to a club meeting last week and it was the first time all of the punch was gone in all the years the club has been getting together. Great tasting, very fruity punch.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I made this punch over the weekend and it was a huge hit!! However, the color did not look like your pictures. It came out a kind of murky redish color... I assume from the cranberry juice. I used 100% Cranberry Juice. Did you use the same, or maybe cranberry juice cocktail, which is sometimes lighter? Any other thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. So glad everyone liked it! I did use regular cranberry juice. The punch in the photos were in bright light and had been a little diluted with ice, so that might have been why the color is a bit lighter.

  38. Hi, i want to make this for a baby shower this weekend. Can you tell me what exactly is frozen concentrated lemonade? Regular lemonade frozen and then thawed? Thank you for sharing the recipe:)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi! Frozen concentrated lemonade is located in the freezer section of the grocery store near the frozen orange juice. It is in a tube looking can... Hope this helps!

      Delete
  39. Thank you for this AWESOME recipe!! I made it this past weekend for our housewarming party and the only problem was I didn't make nearly enough!! The punch was gone an hour into the party - I saw guests shaking the glass drink pourer to try to get the very last drops out from under the ice! This truly is the best party punch ever - I got compliments from small children and grown adults alike!
    I have learned my lesson - next time, I am making 3 gallons of this! Thank you for sharing this with us Tiffany!

  41. I know this is an old post, but I'm going to make this for a baby shower. Did you use regular (yellow) lemonade concentrate or pink lemonade concentrate? Thanks!

  42. Made this for my daughter's birthday party yesterday, and it was a hit! So glad I doubled the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Did you use regular yellow lemonade or pink lemonade? I plan on making this for a baby shower, so the Pinker the better but I don't want to throw off the flavors or make it too dark since there's cranberry for colouring as well. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This punch was a huge hit this summer...so delicious!! I added a half bottle of Tito's Vodka to mine, just perfect! Mine came out a much paler pink than the color above, disappointing but still fabulous!
