Simple punch recipes are perfect punch recipes for a crowd because they are usually made in large quantities.
Party punch recipes include alcoholic punch recipes* and those without alcohol. The key ingredient*is the fruit or fruit juice. This drink can use stawberry, peach, lemon, lime, cherry, blueberry or any other fruit you choose.

The non-alcohol kind are a cinch for childrens parties, teen parties, family get togethers. If you want to kick it up a notch then we have alcoholic party punch recipes that work well for adult parties.
As opposed to punch, a cocktail is a mixed drink that contains a spirit (no not the ghost kind, unless you happen to be holding a halloween or murder mystery party,but a strong alcoholic drink) and at least one other ingredient, usually fruit juice or some type of soda.
All of the following are easy punch to make. To give them "eye appeal" use glass punch bowls.*
TIP: Even though it is effortless, do not add plain ice to punch because it will water it down. Add frozen juice cubes instead. Freeze ahead in circular gelatin molds or ice cube trays.
Mixed drinks taste best with fresh ingredients. Use a juicer for those recipes that call for fresh fruit juice.Non Alcoholic Punch
