This easy Pineapple Orange Punch is a delicious drink to serve at any type of party. Fresh berries, fruit juice, and Sprite makes a delicious kid-friendly party drink.
I have come to the realization that I am old. Ok, maybe not really that old, but I’m heading that direction quickly. How do I know this you ask?
Well, there are few things that I have started to notice about myself that indicates old age is rapidly approaching. Don’t get me wrong. I still feel young at heart, so I have that going for me.
Plus, we work out consistently and eat right most of the time, so that helps.
It has been a good month of indulging on holiday sweets and treats and going out to eat with our family, but I think it is a good time to start making a Triple Berry Orange Smoothie and some Broccoli Cheese Egg Muffins for breakfast instead of muffins and donuts!
How do I know old age is approaching? Well, I have multiple creaks and groans in my bones and muscles every morning as I get up out of the bed.
Each morning I am finding new wrinkles on my face and gray hairs on my head. And then there is the fact that any little obnoxious sound gets on my nerves.
The other day, I was trying to work and all I could hear was the bathroom fan running. I could not concentrate until I got up and turned that annoying fan off. Peace and quiet is where it’s at!
The biggest indicator that I’m old though is that I cannot stay up late anymore. I used to be the biggest night owl because my brain would work best late at night.
But now, 10 pm hits and I just cannot keep my eyes open any longer. Of course, that might have a little bit to do with the early morning workouts. But I think the fact that I’m getting older is part of the problem.
Not being able to stay up late could be a potential problem for New Year’s Eve. It’s ok if I just celebrate at 9 pm, right?
And what better way to celebrate than with a glass of this Pineapple Orange Punch. An easy punch recipe made with Sprite is just the thing. Ok, ok, so maybe adding some spirits would be better.
We usually have children running around our house though, so a non-alcoholic party punch recipe is one that everyone can enjoy.
Tips for making Pineapple Orange Punch:
Stir together the three kinds of fruit juices in a large pitcher or bowl to make the best party punch. Chill this mixture in the refrigerator until time to serve it.
Pour the Sprite in right before serving, so it does not lose the fizz.
Float some fresh blueberries, raspberries, and orange slices in the pitcher or bowl, and the punch is ready to drink right away.
Add a slice of orange to each glass and a cute straw to give this Pineapple Orange Punch a pretty pop of color and flair.
If you are having a big crowd, double or triple the punch recipe.
You can freeze some of the juice and fresh fruit in a mini bundt pan to create a fun ice ring. Float this ring in the punch bowl to keep the party punch chilled longer.
