Ingredients Needed for the Pineapple Orange Punch
- Pineapple Juice – canned pineapple juice is the easiest for this recipe, but as we always say, fresh is best. So, if you can do fresh pineapple juice, do it!
- Orange Juice – again, fresh squeezed is best! Make sure to strain if you are doing fresh squeezed, to remove the pulp. If it’s off season, you can use orange juice concentrate.
- Lemon Juice – and once again, fresh squeezed is best! But, you can always use lemonade concentrate if you need to.
- Sherbet – in this case any flavor of sherbet will work. We used raspberry, as we wanted a color contract with the juices. But, orange, lime, lemon, pineapple or rainbow work well!
How to Make Pineapple Orange Punch
Making this pineapple party punch in a punch bowl is easiest, but it can be done in a large pitcher. Stir together the three kinds of fruit juices in a large container or pitcher until you are ready to serve. Chill this pineapple orange punch mixture in the fridge until time to serve it.
When ready to serve, pour the mixture into a large punch bowl. Add in the pint of any flavor sherbet in scoops so it floats on the top. This will also help to chill the orange pineapple punch down.
Ladle into punch cups with some of the sherbet scoops as they melt, and garnish with a few mint leaves or mint sprigs.
Tips & Tricks
- Garnish – if you don’t have fresh mint, try orange slices, lime slices or a lemon slice. Feel free to top with some fresh fruit like berries, too.
- Sparkling – If you are interested in making this a more sparkling punch, when ladling the punch into cups, add a splash of club soda, ginger ale, lemon-lime soda or citrus flavored sparkling water. This will make the pineapple orange punch less sweet, but makes a fun fizzy drink.
- Ice – if you want it extra cold feel free to freeze some extra juice (of any kind) in mini bundt pan or gelatin mold to create an ice ring to float in the punch bowl. You can even add in some fresh fruit to the ring, or mint leaves! We discourage you from using regular ice cubes, or even a ring made of water. This will water the punch down considerably and will not be tasty.
- For a crowd – while this recipe will make make enough for 6-8 people, if you are having a larger group, we encourage you to double or triple this pineapple orange punch recipe! Large format cocktails are great for a group so that you don’t have to play bartender and hostess the whole party! Try our Thanksgiving Punch for a crowd, too!
- Boozy – yep, this is a non-alcoholic cocktail. If you are interested in making it boozy, we have some ideas. Either add about 6 ounces of whatever liquor you prefer to the punch bowl when serving, or you can add 1-1.5 ounces to each punch cup and then top with the fruit juice mixture. We think vodka, gin or rum is lovely in this. If you use the lime sherbet tequila is tasty with it. Even some coconut rum would be tasty!
- Prep – make sure to chill all the ingredients before mixing the punch together, and chill all the juices together after mixing too. Keep the sherbet frozen, and you will have a great cold punch! You can go ahead and mix the fruit juices together up to 2 hours in advance of serving it, just stir before serving and adding sherbet.
- Other Flavors – instead of orange juice try mango juice or passion fruit juice. Instead of lemon try lime juice. And the flavors will change with the flavor of sherbet that you pick, too! So if it’s scoops of orange sherbet to highlight the orange flavor or a more tropical twist with pineapple sherbet as a great option, or a fun rainbow sherbet punch. Or, instead of sherbet, you can use ice cream!
- Storage – you can store leftovers in the fridge, but it may get a little frothy/have a film from the sherbet if it sits for a long while. You may need to add more sherbet if serving again. Or, add a carbonated beverage to change it up. If you do have any extra pineapple orange punch, it’s great to make ice cubes with.
- Glassware – if you have a crowd, punch cups will probably your best bet. But, tumblers are great for this punch too!
