Punch Bowl Recipes for Year-Round

by Yajush Sharma

Hosting a house party could be a stressful undertaking but the more prep-work completed beforehand, the less work you’ll have to worry about once your guests have arrived. So whether you have a house party coming up or a backyard family gathering, here are some punch bowl recipes to help ease the demands of hosting!

Sangria 

Everyone loves a glass of good sangria! This is a classic option for when you feel confused about the different tastes of your guests. Typically, Sangria is made with white wine or dry red wine, brandy, and lime soda combined with fruits like apples, oranges, and grapes. 

However, try and experiment by adding different ingredients such as peach, cucumber, or lavender to make your punch bowl a little more special and unconventional! To add a tropical vibe during summer, add pineapple or guava!

Pro Tip: Make your Sangria a day in advance. This allows flavors to infuse well together overnight. 

 



Sangria Punch Bowl: (15 Servings)

Prep time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 bottles of red or white wine
  • 1/2 Bottle of VSOP Brandy
  • Chopped fresh fruits to your liking: apples, grapes, berries, pineapple, oranges, etc.
  • 1/2 Cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 ½ Cups of mixed fruit juice of your liking: cranberry, pineapple, orange, etc.
  • Soda water

Steps:

  • Mix all liquid ingredients in a large pitcher.
  • Add chopped fruit.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • Pour into a punch bowl and have glassware nearby for guests to serve!

 

Mojito

A classic Mojito is made with white rum, soda water, simple syrup, lime juice, and mint leaves. This recipe is a safe bet whether preparing for big-batch cocktails or on a hot summer day. 

To put a spin on this classic drink, add fresh fruit such as Strawberries, Peaches, Pomegranate, Blueberries, Passionfruit, Watermelon, or even Mango to your recipe!

Pro Tip: Have fresh lemon juice on hand any time you are creating a fruit-infused cocktail! This helps brighten the drink while masking the strong flavor of the rum or vodka.

Spicy Margarita

Here is another classic cocktail for friends that like tequila! It’s hard to go wrong with a classic margarita, especially a spiced version. This is a drink you want to be sure not to add too much sweetener, it could quickly take away from the refreshing aspect of this light cocktail.
