Drinks To Devour: Mom’s Party Punch

Party Punch


Planning the perfect party can be stressful. From cleaning the house to coming up with the menu and decorating, sometimes it can be frustrating being the host (but always worth it in the end!)

So to ease your party stress, I thought I’d share with you my Mom’s Party Punch recipe. It’s quick and simple and the only catch to it – it does require a little overnight preparation. (It contains fruit juice ice cubes…yum.) But if you can handle a little pre-party prep, I can assure you that this punch will win over your guests!



– 1 14 oz. can of Pineapple Juice

– 1 2-liter bottle of Ginger Ale

– 1 carton of Orange Juice

– 1 96 oz. bottle of Cranberry Juice

– 2 Ice Cube Trays



The night before, fill one ice cube tray full of orange juice and fill another with cranberry juice. Let sit overnight, until frozen. (I only had 2 ice cube trays but feel free to make more than that as they tend to melt fast!)

Fruit Juice Ice Cubes


Gather ingredients.



Pour equal parts of each juice and ginger ale into a large punch bowl, leaving enough room for the ice cubes. (Depending on the size of the punch bowl, you may have leftover juice. You can use the extras to refill the punch bowl.)

Add the fruit juice ice cubes (heads up, splashing may occur) and enjoy!

Finished Party Punch


This recipe does not contain alcohol. However, feel free to spike this punch if you’d like – it’s good with alcohol in it too!

I do apologize for the lack of pictures but oddly enough, I was very busy setting up for a party myself when photographing this blog. Oh, the irony.

Bottoms up!

  1. Can you put alcohol in this drink and if so, what would you recommend. Hi Jessica, just thought I would drop a line.

  2. You can definitely add alcohol to this! I recommend a coconut-flavored rum, like a Bacardi Coconut or Parrot Bay. It gives it a sweet kick! Hello Ken, I hope all is well in Jacksonville! We’re still settling in…more blogs coming soon!
