Punch is my favorite drink option for parties because you can make a big batch and let your guests serve themselves.

That allows you the time to mingle and actually enjoy yourself instead of playing bartender.

So if you’ve got a holiday party coming up, try these fabulous fall punch recipes.

From pumpkin and apple to cranberry and caramel, it doesn’t matter what your favorite fall flavor is, you’ll find it here.

17 Easy Punch Recipes for Your Next Fall Party

1. Apple Cider Punch

This gorgeous golden drink is apple cider with a little extra oomph.

You’ll mix your favorite brand with orange juice, lemon juice, and ginger ale, so it’s citrusy, bubbly, and wonderfully warm.

If you want an adult-only version, use hard cider or add a cup of rum or whiskey. Fireball is an excellent, zippy option, as is Captain Morgan’s spiced rum.

Either way, it’s robust, apple-licious, fruity, and as refreshing as it is delicious. 

2. Autumn-Spiced Rum Punch

It’s hard to believe just how fruit-filled and fantastic this punch is. And I do mean fruit-filled – not fruit juice-filled. (Though there’s plenty of that, too.)

The punch includes real apples, pears, and oranges, making it citrusy, appley, and cinnamony to the max.

The best part is all the floating pieces of boozy fruit! And yes, munching on that fruit is just as satisfying as the drink itself. 

3. Easy Fall Party Punch

Do you need something tasty you can whip up in five minutes? This easy fall party punch is just the thing. 

You’ll need only three ingredients (apple cider, ginger ale, and pineapple juice) and a really big bowl.

Mix everything, add some apple slices as a garnish, and you’re all set. 

It tastes best if it has time to chill first. However, you can serve it right away over ice if you’re in a pinch.

Or if the ingredients are cold to start with, you may not even need ice.

4. Spiked Harvest Punch

This boozy, bright red drink is another fall favorite.

Along with the typical autumn flavors of cider and cinnamon, there’s also pomegranate juice for a bright boost of sweet antioxidants. 

It gives the drink a fruity and tart taste that works so well with the crisp apple flavors.

With or without the apple whiskey, this is one drink you don’t want to miss. 

5. Thanksgiving Punch

Thanksgiving punch uses just three ingredients and is entirely alcohol-free.

Between the apple cider, caramel syrup, and pumpkin pie spice, it tastes like a sweet caramel apple in liquid form.

It’s a fruity, fragrant, and flavorful drink that’s fun for the whole family. 

Throw in some caramel vodka if it’s for the grown-ups only.

6. Cranberry Apple Cider Punch

What’s pretty in pink, tart, tangy, and chock-full of citrusy flavor? This cranberry and apple cider punch, of course!

It’s a bright, hard-to-resist drink that takes just five minutes to prepare. 

It tastes terrific cold but is also good at room temperature.

If you want to give it even more zing, try squeezing a little lemon juice into it. It really livens up the flavor.  

7. Sparkling Fall Punch

If you prefer fall drinks overloaded with apples, this recipe is for you.

It features apple cider, apple whiskey, and real apples! There’s also a splash of ginger beer and wine to balance everything out. 

But mostly, this one is all about – you guessed it! – the apples. 

8. Cranberry Pineapple Punch

Cranberry and pineapple punch is a phenomenal drink that’s like a tropical fall day.

It perfectly balances sweet and tangy and features a gorgeous pinkish-red color.

The cranberries are tart and fruity, and the pineapple makes things nice and sweet. In fact, you could even serve this one during the summer.

Ginger ale gives it a lift without adding booze. Though if you want booze, I recommend citrus or pineapple vodka (if you can find it).

9. Sparkling Cranberry Vodka Punch

This one is similar to the recipe above, only it includes booze and calls for lemonade over pineapple juice.  

That makes it much more tart, which I think is super refreshing.

It’s boozy, addictive, and beautifully festive. 

10. Orange Cranberry Party Punch

This punch is a total mishmash of ingredients, and I can’t get enough!

There’s cran-apple juice and cranberry juice to start. However, there’s also orange juice, lime juice, and ginger ale. 

You’d think all those bold flavors wouldn’t mesh well together, but they do. In fact, they blend seamlessly to create an incredible party punch everyone will love.

It’s tart, tangy, and not overly sweet. But despite its lack of sweetness, I promise it won’t last – even the kids will want seconds.

11. Caramel Apple Punch

Here’s another caramel apple punch recipe for those with a serious sweet tooth. (Guilty!) 

It’s a sparkling, amber punch that tastes like caramel apples with a hint of pumpkin pie.

It’s alcohol-free, so everyone can enjoy it, too.

That said, I usually add salted caramel vodka for a kick of boozy goodness.

12. Apple Pie Punch

Have you made your first apple pie of the season yet? If not, skip the complicated pastry and make this quick and easy cocktail instead.

It’s like a slice of warm, comforting apple pie, only with an extra special alcohol kick.

Most of my friends love this drink over ice. But I think it’s incredible served warm with a little whipped cream on top. 

You’ll need apple pie vodka for that signature taste. Though I actually prefer a mix of caramel, apple, and whipped cream vodka!

Rim the glass with crushed Graham Crackers for a fantastically festive finish.

13. Spiced Bourbon Punch

Although this drink is cool and crisp, it’ll warm your belly in a hurry.

Like many drinks on this list, it starts with an apple cider base. To that, you’ll add an entire bottle of bourbon and Champagne (or Prosecco).

Mix that with Triple Sec, simple syrup, and lemon juice, and you’ve got a pretty potent drink. 

If you don’t like the strong taste of alcohol, this likely isn’t for you.

But if you enjoy the warm, earthy undertones, you’ll love it. 

14. Easy Spiced Pear Fall Punch

Apples get all the love during fall. But I think we should give pears some of the spotlight.

They’re sweet, flavorful, and buttery – perfect for pies, desserts, and this tasty fall punch!

It has a sweet, fruity, and cinnamon-filled flavor, and it smells as good as it tastes.

Add some caramelly rum, and you’ll be hooked!

With pear slices and cinnamon stick garnishes, it looks pretty awesome, too.

15. Honeycrisp Apple Cider Rum Punch

Don’t let that delicate peach color fool you. This drink is just as apple-forward and boozy as many other options on the list.

It combines apple cider and orange juice for a mouthwatering drink. And there’s just enough rum to keep it from being too fruity.

16. Pumpkin Pie Punch

This creamy orange drink features cream soda, pumpkin puree, and apple cider all rolled into one.

It’s everything you love about fall, with an Everclear twist. 

Since it’s got real pumpkin in the mix, it’s quite thick. But it’s still a lovely drink to enjoy during the holidays.

Add a little whipped cream and ground nutmeg on top for a fun, pie-like finish, and it’ll be the talk of the Turkey Day table.

17. Pumpkin Head Punch

Sweet and pumpkiny, with just a little bite, this pumpkin head punch is a must-make this fall.

It’s a wallop of pumpkin goodness with a dash of citrus, ginger, and tart lemon juice.

It’s a fruity, festive drink with a hint of spice in every sip. As long as you love pumpkin, you’ll appreciate this punch.
