13 Easy New Year’s Eve Punch Recipes to Get the Party Started

A proper New Year’s Eve celebration needs a few things: good company, delicious food, and fantastic drinks.

That’s where these punch recipes come in!

Each one has its own unique twist, but they all have one thing in common – they’re absolutely delicious.

Some (most) are boozy, but there are non-alcoholic options for the kiddos too. 

Whatever you choose, I know you’ll love these New Year’s punch recipes. 

Happy New Year!!

1. New Year’s Eve Champagne Punch

Pop the Champagne – it’s time to celebrate the New Year!

This recipe does Champagne a little differently, but it’s still super delectable. The flavors are the perfect mix of sweet, tangy, and spicy.

And don’t even get me started on how bubbly it is!

Featuring a mix of Champagne, Chambord, blackberry brandy, and Triple Sec, you’ll get notes of delicious blackberry, orange, and other fruits in every sip.

But wait… there’s more.

You’ll mix all that booze with pineapple juice and ginger ale. Not only is it absolutely scrumptious, but it looks totally festive, too. 

2. New Year’s Eve Sherbet Punch

I love sherbet punch for any occasion because it’s sweet, creamy, fruity, and fantastic.

And this party-perfect New Year’s Eve sherbet punch does NOT disappoint. 

Made with strawberry Kool-Aid, pineapple juice, and cranberry ginger ale, you’ll love the added sherbet, pineapple rings, and fresh raspberries.

That’s technically a kid-friendly recipe, so you could totally serve it as is. But you can also make it adult-only with a simple swap.

This recipe calls for eight cups of cold water to make the Kool-Aid base. So, to make it boozy, use five cups of water plus a whole bottle of Champagne. 

Just wait to add the bubbly after you’ve mixed the Kool-Aid already. You don’t wanna lose the bubbles. 

3. New Year’s Eve Celebration Punch

This delightful New Year’s Eve celebration punch is also kid-friendly. But don’t worry, the adults will love it, too.  

And with just three ingredients, it’s beyond simple to throw together. You only need pineapple juice, ginger ale, and white grape juice – that’s it! 

Top tip: use sparkling white grape juice for an extra bubbly bevvy. Or Champagne for the grown-ups. 

4. Holiday Punch

Each sip of this punch tastes like cozy fires and holiday cheer.

Full of classic holiday flavors like orange, cranberry, apples, caramel, and cinnamon, it’s warm yet refreshing. 

You’ll need cinnamon syrup, bourbon, cranberry juice, orange juice, ginger beer, and hard cider. Then garnish with fresh orange slices.

The recipe also comes with a non-alcoholic version featuring plain apple cider. 

5. Bourbon and Vodka Spiked Party Punch

I recommend keeping your New Year’s Day open if you make this on NYE. Because this stuff is STRONG.

Like the Hulk strong. 

But between the vodka, bourbon, cranberry juice, and ginger ale, it’s also insanely delish.

Seriously, one glass just isn’t enough. 

Frozen orange juice concentrate and frozen lemonade concentrate keep it cold and add an incredible amount of flavor.

Garnish with orange slices, lemon slices, and frozen cranberries. 

6. Pomegranate Prosecco Punch

Pomegranates scream luxury, don’t you think? Something about that color is so regal, making this pomegranate and Prosecco punch extra elegant.

It also happens to be delicious. 

Notes of orange from Cointreau and orange juice compliment the pomegranate juice beautifully.

And the fruity, citrusy flavor of Prosecco rounds out the flavors while giving you bubbles to boot. 

What more could you ask for?

7. Cranberry Prosecco Punch

Like the previous recipe, this cranberry punch also has delicious notes of orange. But this time, it comes from Triple Sec.

Still, the cranberry is the prominent flavor, so expect something sweet yet delicioulsy tart.  

It fits the holiday flavor bill in a totally classic way, and it’s a cinch to whip up.

8. Pink Champagne Punch 

You only need three ingredients to make this pretty and delicious punch.

Three very alcoholic ingredients. So don’t let the look fool you… this pink drink throws a pretty mean punch

Pun intended. 

But it’s easy to make and sure to stand out in your Insta pics!

Combine your favorite pink Champagne or bubbly rosé with Triple Sec and orange vodka. Then garnish with a raspberry, and enjoy!

9. Sparkling White Cranberry and Grape Punch

This sweet and festive mocktail is fun for the whole family.

It’s made with cranberry juice, white grape juice, and lemon-lime soda. Easy, booze-free, and fabulously fizzy, it’s a surefire hit!

But wait! There’s one more super fun element – pomegranate ice cubes. 

Make the ice cubes with pomegranate seeds and cranberry juice. Freeze them in an ice cube tray and pop them in your glass.

Not only do they look great, but they won’t water down your drink. 

10. Caribbean Rum Punch

I don’t know about you, but I always make a New Year’s resolution to travel more.

Luckily, this deliciously tropical punch will whisk you away to a sandy beach in paradise. 

Well, your taste buds, at any rate. 

Every sip features orange, lime, and pineapple juices, plus the sweet cherry of grenadine.

White and dark rum round out the flavors with notes of vanilla and wood smoke. 

Personally, I swap the plain white rum for coconut rum, like Malibu. And I switch the plain dark rum for spiced rum.

To me, that tastes even more like the Caribbean. But it’s delicious either way. 

What better way to celebrate the New Year than dreaming up fun destinations to visit?    

11. Champagne Mimosa Punch

This citrusy punch tastes like sunshine in a bowl! It’s perfect for New Year’s Eve or for brunch on New Year’s Day. 

Like any good mimosa, you’ll need orange juice and Champagne – just made on a grander scale.

And you’re gonna add more orange flavor with Cointreau.

Then, you’re gonna add some fun with orange sherbet to really bring the sweetness to the punch.

Garnish with fresh orange slices, and you’re good to go!  

12. Bellini Rum Punch

Do you want your year to go out with a bang? Then celebrate with this peachy punch.

It’s super boozy, fabulously fruity, and totally mouthwatering. And it’s easy to make. 

You only need frozen peaches, light rum, Prosecco, and dark rum.

Blend the light rum and the peaches together to create an adult slushie of sorts. And then mix it with the rest. 

It’s got a hint of sweetness but nothing overpowering. Though you could always add a simple syrup if you want it to be sweeter.

13. Strawberry Champagne Punch

Even the staunchest beer drinkers will love the sweet strawberry flavor of this pretty pink punch.

I mean, what’s not to like?

It’s sweet, bubbly, and totally refreshing. But it’s not SO sweet that you’ll need to see the dentist on January 1st.

The best part is the easy, homemade strawberry puree. It’s a combination of thawed frozen strawberries and simple syrup.

It tastes so fresh. And when you add the pink Champagne and lemon-lime soda… it’s amazing.
