These non-alcoholic Christmas punch recipes will add an extra festive flair to any holiday event! They’re also super easy to make, so they won’t add any additional stress to your holiday planning!
Christmas is indeed the most wonderful time of the year, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a big bowl of festive and delicious punch that the whole family can enjoy!
It’s no secret that I enjoy a nice glass of wine or spiked punch, but I have plenty of family members who don’t drink and tiny nieces & nephews. So I love having a special drink for them at Christmas and always keep my eye out for fun, non-alcoholic punch recipes to try during the holidays.
These Christmas punch recipes are perfect for opening presents, Christmas brunch or dinner, and holiday parties! I also picked a wide range of punches with different ingredients and flavors. So whether you like your drinks fruity, fizzy, hot, or frozen, there’s a punch on this list for you!
This recipe caught my eye because I absolutely love chai flavored beverages during the holiday season! This would make a house smell amazing, and it also sounds really refreshing.
The key ingredients are chai tea, apple juice, cranberry juice, and ginger ale. The tea will prevent the drink from being too sweet, while the juices will add a fruity, tartness to it. It's sure to put a smile on any Scrooge's face!
I know not everyone wants a frozen drink in December, but I personally think they're super fun and festive! This recipe reminds me of a drink my best friend's family always served at their annual Christmas party, so it brings back all sorts of nostalgia and great memories.
It uses frozen orange and lemon juice concentrate along with pineapple juice and sprite. The result is the most amazing slushy, goodness that the kids will love.
This is really the quintessential Christmas punch, and it's beyond easy to make. All you need is cranberry juice, orange juice, and Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry. You can also throw some rosemary and mint on top for an extra festive, spicy kick!
I'm a little bit obsessed with the Grinch and have an entire post dedicated to boozy Grinch-themed punches, so I naturally had to include a non-alcoholic Grinch drink! This is perfect for the kids or for a viewing of the Grinch.
Not to mention it's a very festive green and red, so even if you aren't the biggest Grinch fan, this punch still screams Christmas! It's also only 5 ingredients: Hawaiian Punch, Sprite, lime sherbet, pineapple juice, and red sprinkles for the rim.
Okay, I promise this is the last recipe on this list that uses frozen ingredients. I couldn't help myself because they all sound so delicious! This punch is beyond easy to make and will make you feel like you're drinking a candy cane.
All you need is peppermint candy cane ice cream, club soda, and everyone's favorite Christmas beverage -- eggnog!
If you're looking for a hot, non-alcoholic punch the whole family can enjoy, this one might just fit the bill! I have memories of walking around German Christmas markets with my grandma and sipping on this hot, fruity, cozy drink when I was a wee lass, so Kinderpunsch is really nostalgic for me.
If you've never had it before, it is beyond tasty and super festive! Kind of like a mulled wine, but less cloudy and without the alcohol. It's pretty easy to make as well and just requires a blend of juices, winter spices, hibiscus tea, and honey to taste.
I wanted to include at least one recipe with only two ingredients because... it's the holidays. Sometimes you just don't have time for more than that, and that's perfectly fine.
All you need for this cocktail is cranberry juice and red grapefruit juice. You can salt the rim to make it feel a little like a Paloma, but that's by no means a requirement! This is meant to just be a super easy, refreshing, tart, and fruity drink to get you in your festive holiday feels.
Ponche Navideño is a traditional hot Christmas punch from Mexico. The ingredients might be a little more difficult to find than others from this list, but it would be totally worth it!
The drink uses fresh and dried fruits, such as tamarind, prunes, raisins, guava, and apple; sugar cane and cinnamon; and Piloncillo for added sweetness. If you're not familiar with Piloncillo, it's a raw cane sugar that adds extra caramel-y flavors to whatever you put it in. You can find it at any Mexican grocery store, or you can substitute it with normal brown sugar.
And that’s a (gift) wrap! I hope these recipes bring you comfort, joy, and a whole lotta deliciousness. Also, if you have a favorite non-alcoholic Christmas punch that you whip up each year for the kids or for Christmas morning, please let me know in the comment section below!
