We made this punch for our second annual Kentucky Derby party. It was a hit! Not too strong, and the citrus was a great relief from the heat. Serve in a glass filled with ice.

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix bourbon, orange juice concentrate, lemonade concentrate, lemon juice, and maraschino cherry juice together in a pitcher until base is well mixed.

  • Pour the base into a punch bowl; add club soda, lemon slices, and maraschino cherry halves.

Cook's Notes:

You can also make a ice ring to place into the punch bowl to help keep the bourbon punch cold. Remember, it will dilute the punch as it melts, so keep a little extra bourbon handy to add as needed. Ice ring: 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, 1 sliced orange, 1sliced lemon, 1/2 cup maraschino cherries. Prepare the lemonade according to directions.

Pour the lemonade into a Bundt(R) pan or a glass or plastic bowl. Lay orange and lemon slices in layers in the lemonade and top with maraschino cherries. Freeze overnight. To remove ice ring from pan or bowl, place it in warm water in the sink until it loosens from the container. Place in punch bowl and pour the punch over it.
