When I first posted this recipe over 5 years ago, I knew it would become one of my favorite easy party drinks – and it’s one I love to make every summer to this day!
This delicious easy punch is great to make ahead of time so the fruit juice comes together – it’s great for big 4th of July parties!
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.

How to Make 4th of July Punch
With your apple stars cut, add frozen strawberries to the bottom of you pitcher, and cover with juice and sprite (in equal parts).
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.
Next, fill it up with more juice and sprite.
Add frozen blueberries on top as a floating layer, and serve!
How to Serve Patriotic Punch for a 4th of July Party
I like to serve this fun and patriotic 4th of July Fruit Punch 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, then encourage guests to pour their own!
I like to put this punch in a large pitcher, punchbowl, or glass drink dispenser so guests can see all of the fruit – especially those adorable apple stars!
Red White and Blue Fruit Patriotic Punch
- -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.
- Start off by cutting star shapes into your apples.
- 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!!).
