25 Easy Punch Recipes That Are Perfect For Summer

25 Easy Punch Recipes That Are Perfect For Summer

Sharing is caring!

These 25 Easy Punch Recipes are perfect for your next summer get-together…

Summer is the season of backyard BBQs, baby showers, and family get-togethers!

No one is more excited for the warmer weather than I – it’s been a depressing 8 months of cold winter weather here in Michigan.

Seriously, we jump for joy and walk around in shorts as soon as the temperature hits a solid 50 degrees!

So when the warm weather finally hits the Midwest, we celebrate outside with a glass of punch (or a beer).

There’s just something about kicking up your feet after a long day at work with a giant glass of homemade punch that makes you feel happy!

For me, the fruitier (is that a word?) a punch is, the better.

I know I am going to be experimenting with dozens of punch combinations this season, and probably guys a ton of cute glass mason jars to put my punches in.

I also have a sister-in-law who is pregnant this year, and is due mid-August, so that will be the perfect time to come up with a non-alcoholic baby shower punch for her shower.

Aaaaand maybe an alcoholic version for those of us who aren’t pregnant. 

To help get you ready for the Summer season, I’ve rounded up 25 of my favorite punch recipes to quench your thirst on a hot day!

Most of these are non-alcoholic punch recipes, but I did include some alcoholic punch recipes at the bottom of the post.

My husband loves lemonade; I can't stand it. So that means, I will be making two batches minimum for us to drink. From the lemonade choices, I think he'd enjoy the Fruity Mint Lemonade best, but I will also make the Homemade Peach Lemonade for my sweet hubby.

I'll be making myself a batch of the Mad Scientist Green Punch With Sherbert and Pink Strawberry Sherbert Punch. Yum!
