The best easy Punch recipe! You only need two ingredients to make this show-stopping, delicious white grape punch. 

This drink recipe takes less than 5 minutes to whip together and it’s always a hit, wherever it’s served! This punch recipe is also perfect for baby or bridal showers where you need a non-alcoholic beverage.

Serve this punch alongside other party favorites such as these French Dip Sliders, Pigs in a Blanket, or this easy Fruit Dip.

I first tried this punch at my friend Stephanie’s house for a Bunco night. One sip of this drink and I had to know what was in it. Come to find out there are only TWO ingredients (!!!)

Two ingredients (I add in some fruit garnishes bringing the total up to 3 or 4 ingredients, but they’re optional) and your punch game will forever be changed.

Stephanie’s recipe has quickly become my go-to punch recipe because when you’re making a whole spread of dishes, the last thing you need is a complicated drink recipe.

This simple recipe is made of white grape juice concentrate and a bottle of Fresca®. I like to add in some fresh fruit for a garnish, but that’s completely optional. If Cara cara oranges are in season, that is my favorite addition to add. Raspberries also compliment the drink well and look beautiful.

QUICK TIP

Fresca is a diet grapefruit soda made by the Coca-Cola Company. If you can’t find Fresca, you may be able to locate Squirt®, Izze® or a store brand of diet grapefruit soda.

How much punch do you need?

This is one of the most-asked questions when preparing a punch. Generally punch is made for a party, so it’s important to get drink estimates right.

If you plan to double, triple (or even quadruple) this recipe, consider making just one batch at a time. Simply keep the white grape juice and Fresca (and fruit garnishes, if using) chilled in the fridge and ready to go. Doing this will prevent wasted ingredients if you end up not needing as much as you originally estimated.

This drink recipe is about as simple as it gets, but every punch needs a good serving vessel.

Equipment

  • Punch bowl or drink dispenser

Ingredients

  • 1 container (12 ounces) 100% white grape juice from concentrate, thawed
  • 1 bottle (2 liters) Fresca (or similar Citrus Sparkling Flavored Soda)
  • Optional: thinly sliced and halved Cara cara oranges and/or fresh raspberries
  • Optional: Ice, for serving

Instructions

  • AHEAD OF TIME: Thaw the grape juice concentrate in the fridge. Chill the Fresca in the fridge. If both are cold you won't need as much (or any) ice which, and that will keep the punch from becoming watered down.
  • In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine the thawed white grape juice and Fresca. Stir together.
  • If desired, add in washed and thinly sliced and halved Cara cara oranges and/or a few washed fresh raspberries.
  • Punch is best made right before serving so it doesn't go flat. I recommend serving ice on the side or adding as it's served so the punch isn't watered down.

    I love easy and elegant drink recipes! Have you heard of coffee punch? I think it’s more common in the South but if you haven’t tried it, you’ve got too. It would make a beautiful blog post, too. It’s basically coffee, milk, sugar, and ICE CREAM. So delish. Perfect for a bridal or baby shower.

  2. Hi Chelsea,
    I have just learned that Welch’s has discontinued their juice concentrates! I haven’t found another brand available — do you have another source? The only option I can think of is apple juice concentrate, but it has a bit more detectable flavor. Thanks for any suggestions.

      1. I replied a few days ago but don’t know if it went through as I haven’t heard back from you. Bottled white grape juice is certainly available here, but I have found no brands of the frozen concentrate. I like to use it also in other recipes (including baking) instead of sugar, but have been substituting apple jc concentrate for the time being, but prefer white grape as it has a more neutral flavor. Hoping white grape becomes available again soon. Do you have any other suggestions?

        1. Hmm I’m so sorry! I haven’t ever tried anything else but the white grape concentrate so I don’t know what would be best in its place. I think you could use bottled white grape juice; just play around with the quantities a bit since it won’t be the same as the concentrated form.
