Citrus fruit punch

Make your New Year's gathering memorable with an all-natural punch that's packed with Vitamin C and flavor.

  • Yield: 8 cups
  • Prep time: 10 minutes

For your last hurrah of 2015, resist the urge to drink the Kool Aid – the kind that's made of powder and turns your tongue weird, unnatural colors. It's a bit scary, and frankly, your New Year's party guests deserve better. Our citrus fruit punch, on the other hand, is full of great nutrition, great taste, and will leave your facial organs dye-free and ready for your New Year's celebration.

This punch is a bit tangy, so if you like your drinks sweet, add a good, strong dose of honey. And the alcohol, of course, is optional.


  • 5 cups orange juice
  • 2 cups grapefruit juice
  • 2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 handful raspberries
  • 1 handful strawberries, halved
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup Absolut Citron (optional)


Pour all ingredients into a glass pitcher or punch bowl. Stir.

Add sliced orange wheels, raspberries, strawberries and cinnamon sticks for garnish and added flavor.

Taste, and add honey if desired.
