Oma's Non-Alcoholic Punch Recipe ❤️

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

This easy non-alcoholic punch recipe, Alkoholfrei Punsch, is one of those simple recipes that you'll use over and over. Among holiday punch recipes, this easy recipe is a winner.

By varying the fruit juice, you'll be able to serve a different punch every time. This is a punch that the kids can enjoy as well. Concerned about caffeine? Use decaffeinated tea instead.

This non-alcoholic punch recipe is served hot. It's great for those holidays that occur during the colder months. Try this punch for your Thanksgiving, Oktoberfest, Christmas, and New Year's celebrations.

Perhaps it's just a chilly evening and you want something special? Then make just half this recipe.

Serving Ideas ...

Want to make this fancy when you serve it? Have fresh lemon (or orange) slices available and put in each glass. Then add a stir stick - a stick of cinnamon to each glass as well.

This punch is only as good as the juice you use. Try to use fresh juice. Using cheap frozen or canned juices will turn out a normal tasting punch. But if you want something that will impress your taste buds and your guests, go for fresh!

Also, be considerate of your guests. If this is a formal affair and everyone's dressed fancy, stay away from the darkly colored juices. (Stains are never nice.) Use light-colored juices instead. Parents, especially, will be grateful.

Since you are serving this non-alcoholic punch recipe hot, use glasses or glass mugs that have handles on them. That way, it's easier to drink and serve.
