Ingredients Rundown

Ingredients To Make This Holiday Punch

Berry and tropical punch – I used Minute Maid berry & troipical punch. I used these 2 flavors but you can use whatever flavors/brand are your favorite. I usually alternate between these 2 flavors or the the mango blend from Aldi. Like I said above the recipe is super flexible.

Mango and Guava Nectars really pulls the punch together and gives it a more of a Caribbean vibe. You can use equal parts of each or more of whatever is your favorite of the two.

Frozen fruits are definitely key to taking this punch over the top and make it taste homemade. Don’t skip them. You can use whatever combination of frozen fruits. Make the punch ahead to time so all the favors can fuse together.

Orange Juice and lemon slices will add a delicious citrus flavors to the punch. I like to use both but you can also choose one. Use fresh lemons.

Orange or lemon wheels or wedges for garnish.

Recipe FAQs

Variations

How To Make Rum or Vodka or Holiday Punch?

I usually leave the rum and or vodka next to the beverage dispenser so that each guest can make individual cups of the punch alcoholic really easily if we want to. Or if it’s an adults-only soiree, add the alcohol in with the rest of the punch ingredients!

You can also add ginger ale to the punch for some carbonation. If you opt to add the ginger ale – add it right before serving so it doesn’t go flat too quickly. holiday party punch _7242

Kerri’s Recipe Tips

  • This recipe yields roughly 2.5 quarts. It can easily be scaled up or down depending on the quantity needed.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container and store your leftover punch in the fridge for up to 7 days. You can also freeze the leftovers in large ziplock bags for up to 2 months.
  • I ALWAYS recommend reading through the recipe in full a couple of times before starting. That way you know exactly what to expect and you can prep accordingly.
  • Gather all your ingredients before cooking. This way you don’t forget to add an ingredient or two. Believe me, It has happened so many times so I use “mise en place” to save my sanity and the recipe.
