With only 4 ingredients this easy cocktail is going to be the hit of your next party!
Heading into spring and summer we need lots of punch recipes for parties and this one is perfect. Whether you’re celebrating Easter, Mother’s Day, heading to a Memorial Day BBQ or 4th of July gathering or just a pool party, punch is great because it serves a crowd.
You just need these easy ingredients that you probably already have:
- Orange Juice
- Pineapple Juice (get the can, it tastes better)
- Lemon-lime soda (use diet if you want or regular, any brand)
Another thing I love about making party punch is that you can adjust the recipe to fit your needs.
If you think my vodka punch ratio is too strong, add more juice. If you think it’s too weak, add more vodka. Punch is where you can kind of be a mad scientist and it’s not going to kill the recipe.
The kind of vodka you use in party punch does matter.
I know that people might think that, because it’s punch and not a shot, that you can just use cheap vodka, but that’s not really the case. As I’ve aged I’ve realized that buying better brands of liquor is like buying that mid-range wine: it just tastes better and gives you less after effect.
Be sure to use a vodka you like to drink straight or mixed with plain soda. My favorite is Tito’s but I also recommend Skky or Kettle One or Smirnoff.
How long does vodka party punch last?
The soda will get flat after a day or so unless you put this in a sealed container. If you want to use it for a few days or make it ahead, mix the juices and vodka and then add the soda right before serving.
