Sweet Citrus Punch

It’s always a treat to provide overnight or brunch guests with a nice morning beverage, besides coffee.  I find that whenever we serve eggs, I crave an orange-juice based beverage; does anyone else experience that? 

For a brunch a few weeks ago, we made this sweet citrus punch, which was a recipe that caught my attention from Liz and her husband over at Pocket Change Gourmet.

This punch combines orange and pineapple juice along with sparkling lemon water for a delightful breakfast beverage.

Ingredients

  • 1 can frozen orange pineapple juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 3 C cold water
  • 1 bottle, sparkling lemon flavored water

Directions

In a juice container, mix together the orange juice concentrate along with the orange pineapple concentrate. 

Add 3 cups of cold water.  Stir until the concentrates are dissolved. 

Chill the beverage until ready to serve. 

To serve, fill half the glass with the orange pineapple mix, then, top with the lemon sparkling water.  Give a quick stir and serve, either on ice, or without. 

We served this morning beverage in wine glasses for an extra special treat. 

Enjoy!

  1. I've been looking for a punch to serve at a friend's baby shower, this looks like the ticket. It seems like it will be refreshing and not to sugary like so many other punches out there.
