New Year’s Eve is a fun holiday for everyone as we say goodbye to the previous year and welcome a new one full of adventures and surprises.
There’s no better way to celebrate this holiday than enjoying great food and drinks with family and friends.
While most people might
ring in the New Year with champagne, making a delicious and flavorful punch can be worth the extra effort.
So dress up your drink table and serve these New Year’s punch recipes to your guests! From fruity to minty, there is sure to be a punch that everyone will love on this list.
Sherbet is delicious on its own, but using it in a punch brings in a slight and delicious creaminess.
New Year’s Eve sherbet punch combines ginger ale, sherbet, pineapple juice, and a few other ingredients to create a sweet, fizzy, and beautiful red drink.
It reminds me of a tropical fruit punch but features more tanginess and carbonation.
The New Year’s Eve champagne punch is easy to make, as the primary ingredients are only champagne, pomegranate or strawberry juice, and orange juice.
The champagne pairs especially well with the orange juice, creating an acidic tanginess in your mouth.
I like to ensure each glass has some orange slices and frozen strawberries for some extra flavor.
White cranberry punch is the essence of winter holidays with its strong cranberry flavor and hints of crisp apple.
The recipe combines sprite, white cranberry juice, sliced apples, and cranberry ice cubes to create a refreshing, fruity drink that people of all ages can enjoy.
I like to freeze my apple slices to help keep the punch cold.

Hurricane party punch can be a non-alcoholic or an alcoholic punch, depending on what you’d like to include.
The base consists of orange juice, lime juice, pineapple juice, and passion fruit syrup. You can then add grenadine or rum.
I love how the passion fruit syrup balances the acidic taste of the other ingredients by adding a tropical sweetness to the punch.
This punch is one of the healthier options on this list due to the fruit juices, and it provides you with a healthy 30.5 milligrams of vitamin C from the orange juice alone!
Cranberry champagne punch simply combines sparkling wine, cranberry juice, and
orange liqueur to create a tart and slightly sweet beverage that everyone will love.
It also has a mesmerizing red coloring to it, making it a beautiful addition to your drink table.
I highly recommend adding frozen cranberries for garnishing and keeping the punch cold.
Rum punch contains a few fruit juices, 7UP soda, and rum to create a deliciously sweet drink.
Alcohol, such as rum, has a hint of sugar-like sweetness to it, making it the perfect addition to tangy and acidic punches like this.
I like to add in some frozen cranberries, orange slices, and pineapple pieces for garnish and added taste.
This punch almost tastes like it has no alcohol in it. However, keep in mind that rum, like vodka and other hard liquors, has 40% alcohol by volume.
Prosecco punch includes multiple kinds of fruit juices, wine, white tea, and simple syrup to create a deep red, sweet, and fruity drink that your guests will rave about.
The port wine brings in flavors of berries, while the prosecco brings in some citrus notes that mesh well together with the cranberry juice.
I love the little caffeine kick from the white tea.
Minted mimosa punch is one of my favorites to serve, as it is very refreshing and goes well with most food items.
It’s also simple to make, with its primary ingredients being orange juice, Italian blood orange soda, champagne, vodka, and mint.
Blood orange soda typically has about 10% orange and 5% blood orange juice, so this punch is a rather citrusy drink.
I love how well mint pairs with citrus, creating an invigorating taste.
Strawberry champagne punch is simple to make, as it only has three ingredients, champagne, ginger ale, and strawberries.
The punch has a slight sweetness from the ginger ale that isn’t overpowering. It pairs well with the citrus notes that the champagne offers.
I love how the strawberries bring it all together with their sweet berry notes and bright colors.
New Year’s pomegranate punch combines flavors of tart and sweet with its mixture of lemon and pomegranate martini mixes, citrus soda, and two types of alcohol.
The rum adds a delicious caramel-like essence to the punch, which helps balance out the sourness from all the citrus notes.
The pomegranate seeds are also a nice touch for texture and fruitiness.
