Simply Irresistible Fruit Punch Recipe
- 1 of each: orange lemon, lime (cut into wedges)
- 1 small jar maraschino cherries
- 1 to 2 cups of pineapple juice
- 1 qt. Cranberry juice
- 1 qt. Grape juice
- 2 liter of sprite zero
- 2 liter of ginger ale
- In a large container mix juices together.
- Mix in both 2 liters.
- Fill a large punch bowl with ice.
- Place citrus wedges on top of ice.
- Dump cherries on top (including juice).

The recipe makes roughly 25-26 eight ounce servings.
A good rule of thumb, when determining how many servings needed, is to calculate two servings per guest in the first hour, then one serving per guest for each hour thereafter.
If you are serving other beverages (i.e. coffee, tea, soda, water), make sure to adjust your total punch amount, reducing by 1-2 servings per guest.
If the weather is warm, or you’re serving a lot of food, your guests will drink more, so you may want to double it.
