Sparkling Fruit Punch is a summery combination of lemons, oranges and sparkling apple cider. This easy punch recipe is such a pretty display with sliced fruit on top!
So many times at our family picnics, drinks are an afterthought. If I’m really on top of things, I have some iced tea on hand, but there’s been many times when all I’ve had to offer is water!
I’ve always loved seeing fruit punch in a punch bowl at a party. It makes everything seem just a little bit more festive.
This Sparkling Fruit Punch is a recipe I found and has become one of my favorites. If I’m on top of things enough to think of drinks, this is one of my go-to punch recipes!
What flavors are in fruit punch?
You’ll find different fruit flavors in every fruit punch recipe. Ours is a more simple flavor and only has lemon, orange and apple flavors. It’s not too strong which is nice!
What is fruit punch made of?
We’re often asking what the ingredients in fruit punch are. You’ll love this punch because it is so simple:
- lemonade concentrate
- club soda
- 2 bottles of sparkling apple cider
How to Make Sparkling Fruit Punch
Add the lemonade concentrate, club soda and sparkling cider to a punch bowl. Mix well, then add thinly sliced lemons and oranges in for a pretty display!
Can I make fruit punch in advance?
Because this fruit punch has carbonation, you won’t want to make it in advance. Thankfully, it doesn’t take long to make. For the most sparkle, mix this drink right before serving.
Do I add sugar to fruit punch?
The original recipe called for adding just a touch of sugar. We found this wasn’t needed, but feel free to add sugar until it is just to your liking. The fun part of making punch is taste testing, so be sure to taste it before serving it to your guests to make sure it is the flavor you want.
How do I keep punch cold?
If you’re serving the punch in individual glasses, ice cubes will be just fine to keep the drink cold. If you’re serving the punch from a punch bowl, freeze a ring or block of ice so that it won’t melt as quickly and water down the punch.
You could also freeze lemonade in cubes so that it doesn’t waterdown the punch.
