Lemonade-Gin Punch

Author Notes: I first developed this as a non-alcoholic punch for the funeral of a family friend. Normally I wouldn't have chosen a lemonade punch, but it's what the family wanted. So, I tried to make it work, and I think the result, and the alcoholic version that followed, are a big success. It's light, crisp, and has just the right amount of kick.

Note: The amounts for the alcoholic version I am providing are for an individual cocktail. The step by step instructions explain how to make a full batch.

Makes: 1 recipe


Non-Alcoholic Punch

  • 2 liters Polar Ginger Ale
  • 12 ounces (1 can) Frozen Lemonade Concentrate
  • 6 ounces SanPellegrino Aranciata
  • POM Brand Pomegranate Juice

Alcoholic Variation

  • 3 ounces Lemonade Punch
  • 1.5 ounces Plymouth or New Amsterdam Gin
  • .5 ounces Rosso Sweet Vermouth
  • .25 ounces Campari
  • Fresh Lime Juice (about 1 lime quarter)
  • 1 Lime Wheel for Garnish
In This Recipe


  1. Mix 43.5 ounces of gin, 14.5 ounces of vermouth, 7.25 oz of Campari, and the juice of 7 small limes.
  2. Add the can of frozen lemonade concentrate, and mix thoroughly.
  3. Now add the ginger ale and SanPellegrino. Mix gently, you don't want the punch to go flat.
  4. Now slowly pour in the pomegranate juice, while gently stirring, until the punch is a pleasant pink color.
  5. Since you want to keep your punch cold I recommend an ice ring filled with half lemon wheels and mint.
