Easy Christmas Punch

This fun and festive drink is great with Christmas appetizers or at holiday dinners. I make a Thanksgiving punch for turkey day and this delicious non-alcoholic holiday punch for Christmas dinner.

This holiday punch recipe is simple, easy and delicious! It has a sweet and tangy flavor from fruit juice and a fizzle from lemon-lime soda. Garnish with fresh cranberries and orange slices for a beautiful presentation.

Best Christmas Punch Recipe Ingredients

This punch is perfect during the busy holiday season when you need something great to serve guests at a holiday party but are short on time.

Christmas punch ingredients on counter.
  • Pineapple juice: This is my favorite ingredient to add because it gives the punch such great flavor.
  • Cranberry juice: I love the tang this adds. It compliments the sweetness from the other juices so nicely.
  • Orange juice: You can make your own or buy it premade from the grocery.
  • Lemon-lime soda: The carbonation in the soda gives it the perfect fizzle. Any lemon-lime soda will work (I used Sprite). Ginger Ale is also a good substitute.
  • Fresh cranberries: These are for garnish and add a beautiful pop of color.
  • Orange slices: These are also for garnishing the punch. I like to cut mine in circular slices and add them in. So pretty!

How to Make Holiday Punch

This holiday punch is SO simple to throw together, It takes just 5 minutes to make! Add some fun holiday glasses to serve it in and you’re all set!

Pouring cranberry juice in a jar.
  • Chill. Make sure all ingredients are chilled thoroughly.
  • Add juices. Add pineapple juice, cranberry juice and orange juice in a punch bowl and stir.
  • Add soda. When ready to serve, add the lemon-lime soda and stir to combine.
  • Garnish. Garnish with fresh cranberries and orange slices.

TIP: You can easily adjust this recipe depending on how many guests you have. Feel free to double or cut in half.

Tips for Serving

  • Serve in a large punch bowl with ladle so guests can easily fill their own cup.
  • Set out some fun holiday glasses. Mason jars would be great too.
  • Line the rims of the glasses with red colored sugar sprinkles to create a more festive look.
  • Top with fresh rosemary to add some greenery.
  • Set out a plate with more fresh cranberries, oranges and fresh pineapple for guests to add as they please.
  • This Christmas punch would be delicious served with orange sherbet. You can either mix sherbet into the punch bowl or let guests add a scoop to their own glass.
  • Prep ahead by easily mixing up the juices beforehand and then just pour in the soda right before serving.
