I didn't like how tart the cranberry juice made it so I added extra lemonade and orange juice and gingerale. It was pretty good but I've made better. Read More

I could not make this punch fast enough for my holiday guests! I added Meyers Dark Rum and it was just the right touch. Thank you for a wonderful beverage. Read More

I served this punch at a Christmas party, and everyone loved it! A few people even asked me for the recipe. I made an ice ring with pinapple/cranberry juice and orange slices to keep it cold. Read More

This is a very nice punch recipe but I should have paid more attention to the number of servings it made; I had way too much. Next time I'll make half the recipe. Also the cherries probably could be left out -- they weren't necessary. Read More

I recently used this recipe for my daughter's baby shower. Several men attended and raved about the punch! They didn't even mind that it was non-alcoholic!! I left out the marachino cherries because I forgot to buy them but added some fresh mint. The mint added some extra color and an interesting flavor. Read More

I used this punch for Christmas and the kids really enjoyed it. Then last week my nephew called me up and asked if I could make the punch for his birthday party. Now I truly know it was a success! Read More

This punch was a big hit at a recent celebration and we received several requests for the recipe. It was very easy to make and we will definitely make it again! I used pink lemonade. I lessened the amount of lemonade and added a bit more OJ. In addition to the orange slices we added some fresh orange peel strings with a zester. Rather than the ginger ale we replaced it with 50/50 (sour soda) so it wouldn't be too sweet. The fun part was adding some small ice molds using mini bundt pans and froze white cranberry juice fresh cranberries orange zest and an orange slice in each one. It was very festive and overall a great recipe to use!! Read More

This was great! But man oh man did it make a lot of punch. I didn't even really consider the quantities before starting and I was having to jump back and forth between several containers to make it work. Overall it tastes great though! Read More

I made this for a party and everyone loved it. It was perfect for the kids and the adults spiked it with their favorite alcohol. Instead of adding the fruit directly to the punch i froze it in a bit of water and sprite and added the big ice chunk to the punch. It made a great visual and kept the punch cool all night. Read More
