This sparkling punch recipe pairs tangy pink lemonade with tart cranberry juice for an irresistible sweet-and-sour combination. Add some bubbles by mixing in club soda, and garnish with a few fresh mint springs to celebrate the season.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together lemonade concentrate and cranberry juice cocktail in a large pitcher. Cover and chill at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. Stir in club soda just before serving. Garnish, if desired.

Step 2

Champagne Punch: Substitute 1 (750-milliliter) bottle extra-dry Champagne or sparkling wine and 1/4 cup orange liqueur for club soda; proceed with recipe as directed.

Step 3

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Cointreau for orange liqueur.

I used this punch for a baby shower and it was very easy and everyone loved it. I used regular lemonade instead of pink lemonade since the baby was a boy.

This is the perfect spring punch with its gorgeous pink color. I made it as a non-alcoholic option for a family reunion . It was simple to make, which was important because I was preparing food for 18 people, and I didn't want to spend a lot ot time making it.

I very much liked this recipe & am going to make it again. I use it at teas & showers & it is very good, quick & not to expensive to serve a large crowd. I froze some of the punch in ice trays & floated them, with mint sprigs, in the punch bowl. Alcohol could be added to the bowl or individually if children & non-dringers are in attendance. This punch is not too sweet as to interfere with other sweet served on special occasions.

I made this for an office baby shower and it got great reviews! Obviously I used club soda, not champagne, though. It was nice and tart--I don't care for overly sweet punches. Several people asked for the recipe. Would make it again.

I served this at my grand daughter's birthday party. It was so refreshing. To dress it up, I made an ice ring the night before with water, in which I put whole strawberries with the green tops and fresh mint leaves...it looked so festive and elegant. Everyone asked for the recipe for this punch.

Wonderful punch. We used ginger ale instead of club soda and it's great! Super easy to make so it doesn't take to much time away from whatever else you are making!

This is a very good, and not too sweet punch. I went the party version with champagne, cointreau, and mint sprigs from the garden, and the 20-somethings, and way-over-that crowd enjoyed it.
