This easy Breakfast Punch is a fruity, flavorful, and refreshing non-alcoholic drink that both kids and adults will love. Made with orange juice, pineapple juice, ginger ale, and sliced fruit, it’s the perfect non alcoholic brunch drink to serve at your next holiday brunch, baby shower, or morning meeting.
Punch for brunch is always a great option! I like to garnish with strawberry, lemon, and orange slices and serve with a cute straw, but have fun adding other seasonal ingredients like cranberries or mixed berries.
Easy Brunch Punch
This sparkling Breakfast Punch recipe is quick and easy and is great to have in your back pocket. Not only is it delicious, it’s also super easy to turn into a fabulous centerpiece. All you need is a pretty punch bowl or glass pitchers and voila - party punch!
The main flavors of this easy punch recipe are orange juice and pineapple juice, with a touch of ginger ale to make it bubbly and sweet. You can feel free to swap out some of the pineapple juice for cranberry juice. Or, turn this into a boozy orange juice punch by swapping the ginger ale for Prosecco or sparkling wine.
Brunch Punch Ingredients
- Orange Juice Concentrate - you’ll need one 12 ounce can of frozen orange juice concentrate. It’s easiest to mix with the rest of the ingredients if it is already thawed, so you can put it in the fridge overnight or pull out to room temperature for a couple hours. If you want to substitute fresh orange juice, you can use about 4 cups of fresh orange juice and skip the water.
- Pineapple Juice - this adds a deliciously tart sweetness to the punch. You could also use half pineapple juice and half cranberry juice.
- Water - if you use orange juice concentrate you will need to add between 3-4 cups of water. It’s a good idea to taste it before adding the full amount because you may prefer it a bit stronger. Note that if you use fresh orange juice, you don’t need to add any water.
- Ice - make sure to add the ice just before serving so that it doesn’t melt and water down your punch. I prefer to use ice cubes rather than shaved ice because they melt more slowly.
- Lemons - these should be washed, then sliced super thin with any seeds removed.
- Tangerines - you can use tangerines or any other kinds of orange for garnishing your punch. Just like the lemons, you should wash them, then slice thin and remove any seeds before adding.
- Strawberries - these can either be sliced or cut into quarters. They are strictly for garnish, so you could also skip the berries and add another kind of citrus. Or, fresh cranberries would look great around the holidays.
- Ginger Ale - any brand of ginger ale or ginger beer will work well. If you would rather spike your punch with booze, you can replace the ginger ale with Prosecco, Champagne, or another type of sparkling wine.
How to Make Easy Punch for Brunch
- Combine the juices. In a large punch bowl, add thawed orange juice and pineapple juice. Mix together, then add about 3 cups of water. Taste test, adding up to 1 additional cup of water.
- Add the fresh fruit, ice, and ginger ale. Add the ice, sliced lemons, tangerines, and strawberries then mix in the ginger ale.
- Serve. Serve immediately, garnishing with special straws and more sliced fruit as desired. Enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! If you want to add a little booze to your Breakfast Punch, I recommend adding rum, hard cider, Champagne, Prosecco, or any other sparkling wine. If you go with something bubbly you can skip the ginger ale.
If you end up with leftover punch, don’t throw it out. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days, then add a little extra ginger ale before drinking because it will go flat after just a few hours.
If you want to use fresh orange juice instead of frozen concentrate, you likely will not need to add any water. Because of this you will probably need to add more juice, so taste test until you get the strength just how you like it.
- Refrigerator: leftover Brunch Punch can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. To serve again, add more ginger ale to taste.
- Make-ahead: fruit can be sliced and stored in an airtight container overnight. Everything else besides the ice and ginger ale can be mixed together and stored overnight, too. This way, the day of you will just need to add the sliced fruit, ice, and ginger ale to your punch.
