This festive Christmas Morning Punch combines orange juice, pineapple juice, cranberry juice, and ginger ale for an easy non-alcoholic party punch you can enjoy year round! We love serving this make ahead Brunch Punch at baby and wedding showers, holiday meals, or any time we have overnight guests.
On Christmas morning, the only things I want to be worrying about are staying in my pajamas, nursing a cup of coffee, and watching my children tear into their Christmas presents.
It’s perhaps the reason why I’ve developed so many overnight breakfast recipes through the years. Because YES, of course I want Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting and Breakfast Pull Apart Bread and Apple Overnight French Toast Casserole and Breakfast Casserole with Bacon on Christmas morning.
Do I want to get up early to have any of those things?
So today we find ourselves with another make ahead recipe for the holiday season: Christmas morning punch. If you want to kick off the holiday festivities with a little non-alcoholic bubbly, this super easy Christmas punch recipe is the way to do it.
Ingredients in Christmas Morning Punch
This punch is so simple to make and requires just a few ingredients:
- Cranberry Juice–
- TIP: Shopping for cranberry juice is hella confusing, because there are a MILLION combinations and cocktails and almost none of them are actually pure cranberry juice. For reference, I like the 100% Juice Cranberry cocktail with no sugar added. You can use pure cranberry juice, but it’s difficult to find, more expensive, and the punch will not be as sweet.
- Orange Juice
- Pineapple Juice
- Ginger Ale
- Fresh orange slices and cranberries for garnish (optional)
How to Make Brunch Punch
To make the punch, simply stir together all the ingredients and chill until ready to serve. Seriously. It’s that easy.
If you’d like to make Christmas Punch ahead of time, stir together the cranberry, orange, and pineapple juices with the fruit and chill. Just before serving, add the ginger ale so it stays nice and fizzy.
Variations on Easy Christmas Punch
This recipe is very forgiving, so feel free to adjust the ratios of ingredients based on your preferences and what you have on hand.
We prefer our punch to be a little more pineapple-y, but feel free to increase the cranberry juice if you like it more tart (or want a deeper red color).
Looking for a spiked Christmas punch? Substitute the ginger ale for champagne for a mimosa-vibe or use a sparkling wine.
Need more or less? Christmas morning punch can easily be doubled or halved as needed!
