With warmer around the corner, nothing beats a glass of cool and refreshing punch. This goes down so easily. It’s sweet, citrusy, and has a tropical vibe. You can make the punch as either alcoholic or not depending on your needs. Simply omit the alcohols if you don’t want your punch to pack a punch.
There’s pineapple and orange juices for brightness, lemon-lime soda for carbonation, and a few big handfuls of diced fruit. It’s like punch and sangria all in one. There’s lots of wiggle room in the recipe based on personal preferences and what you have on hand for the types of fruit juices and fruit selected. I used strawberries, pineapple, mango, and oranges but use your favorites.
