Patriotic Punch

Patriotic punch- this is perfect for 4th of July or a homecoming! So easy to make and delicious- pin now and save for your summer bbqs!

 

Now that Mothers Day has come and gone, I feel like it is officially SUMMER.

Time to break out the bbq, start planting my garden, and get our Red, White and Blues ready for primetime.

And what is more summer than a delicious party punch that is perfectly patriotic? Today I am showing you my new favorite summer sipper- Patriotic Punch!

Its totally easy to make, and if you want an adult version you can dump in a bottle of your favorite wine (or booze). Best of all, I am using frozen fruit so your drink wont get all diluted and it will stay nice and cold during a scorching hot day.

Such a cute idea! Patriotic punch for summer bbqs is always a huge hit!

To make your own Patriotic Punch, you’ll need:

Patriotic Punch

Ingredients

  • -1 bottle of apple juice, standard size
  • -1 bottle of Sprite
  • -1-2 cups of frozen strawberries (depending on size)
  • -1 cup frozen blueberries
  • -2 apples, sliced into 1 1/2" thick rounds.

Instructions

  1. Start off by cutting star shapes into your apples.
  2. I freehanded star shapes using a knife blade and just softly scoured the surface of the apple to make a rough star shape, then cut it out and used it as a "stencil" to cut more stars- but if you have a star shaped cookie cutter, that would save you a lot of time. (Sadly all mine were too big!!).
  3. With your apple stars cut, add frozen strawberries to the bottom of you pitcher, and cover with juice and sprite (in equal parts).
  4. Next, add your apple stars in on top of the strawberries. You'll want to line them around the sides of the pitcher so you can see them as a middle layer.
  5. Next, fill it up with more juice and sprite.
  6. Add frozen blueberries on top as a floating layer, and serve!
  7. To make this an adult version, add a bottle of wine, or some tequila, vodka or rum. Just be warned- fruit soaks up alcohol. Don't go eating tons of fruit!

Patriotic punch- an easy drink that is a summer bbq showstopper!

I like to serve this in little mason jars with a simple piece of twine around it- and tuck a little flag toothpick in the twine. So adorable, and you can get the jars ready ahead of your party!

Patriotic punch- I am SO doing this for 4th of July! Super easy to make a delicious and impressive drink- and you can make it an adult version, too!

    This looks so pretty and delicious. I loved that you put it in mason jars and added twine and a mini flag! (Stopping by from Tatertots & Jello.)
