Easy Tropical Punch

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Memories of punch goes way back for me, it used to be my Aunty’s speciality every Christmas she would bring all her ingredients and make the kids our very own special drink!! My punch version is very simple.

Pour all your ingredients into a bowl or dispenser, then fill with ice.

You can use a punch bowl, but sometimes I find they make such a mess.  I use a glass dispenser filled with juice, lemonade, fruit and ice.  At the end of the day I pour any unused punch into the blender blitz up and make icey poles for the kids.

Great recipe! Punch was a big hit with our family and guests last Christmas. To make things more colourful, I made a big ice ring out of juice, fruits and mint leaves in a tupperware jelly ring mould…that way the punch doesn’t get diluted. I used a bowl last year and it was very pretty with the ice ring floating but I am very tempted to get one of these drink dispensers. Can I ask if the fruits get in the way of the punch flowing out of the tap?

Oooh YUM!! That looks great and so easy to make! Definitely bookmarking this for the festive season – and I bought a drink dispenser a couple of months ago – so perfect!

Love this idea for Chrissy Day – we get champers so the kidetes should have a special drink, too.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife November 26, 2014 - 9:05 AM

I absolutely agree with you The Hungry Mum.:)

Hey is v that aka fruit cocktail here in usa

I love simple things like this & fruit punch is always a hit. I use a similar recipe by changing one bottle of lemonade for a bottle of dry ginger ale. Its not quite so super sweet then. Thanks for the reminder though. I think I will make one for Chrissy day myself 🙂

My son would love that swapping a lemonade for Ginger Ale, great idea!

Kylie November 26, 2016 - 4:35 PM

I do what Tina does, not as sweet, always a hit at Christmas with the kids!

that looks absolutely delicious. i have been given one of those big glass dispensers, and now the weather is perfect plus the kids are coming next week. awesome!!!

Awesome! Glad to help. It’s a very refreshing drink

I often make this for large functions but use Mineral water and dry ginger. It’s quite sweet enough and is appreciated by guests who are driving. Cranberry/pomegrate juice is a lovely base at Christmas

Great tip Liz, and sounds really delicious! Thank you for sharing 🙂 Kat

I too substitute dry ginger ale but only half a bottle to one and a half lemonade. I freeze juice in a container of a suitable size that will fit in top of dispenser to prevent the watered-down taste. Cut up mint also adds a fresh taste to the punch.

These are all great tips Roz – I especially love fresh mint in punch! Thank you for sharing these tips with us 🙂 Kat
