Strawberry Citrus Easter Punch.

It’s officially time for BRUNCH.

Brunch is always acceptable in my book (because, hi, cocktails at breakfast), but it’s finally warming up, spring is here, and we can brunch outside like the millennials that we are. I don’t hate it.

This perfect pink punch is made for your Easter weekend!

MY OTHER RECIPES


AHHH guys. I am so excited to finally share this. Last month when I was developing a bunch of recipes in preparation for the kitchen remodel, we made a ridiculous amount of cocktails in one day. I used tons of strawberries since I’m knee deep in a strawberry obsession at the moment… and this punch took the cake.

Truly. It was my favorite of all the cocktails, even though I have another delicious strawberry one coming next week!

I love a good punch in springtime. Not only is this perfect for Easter, but all those bridal and baby showers you have coming up? This is your new punch recipe! It’s sweet and tropical and bubbly. Hits all the stereotypical brunch requirements. Maybe just missing the sherbet scoops?

We have:

Fresh strawberry juice puree. Oh my yes.

Fresh strawberries! Of course. The obsession continues.

Lots of citrus in the form of cara cara oranges.

And a little orange juice. Blood orange soda!

A hit of pineapple juice too! Woohoo!

Some light champagne for bubbles.

I looooove it.

Most of my cocktails are shared in the method of easily making one or two, so I love to make a large batch for fun gatherings. It’s just a verrrry interesting day when I make said large batch. It obviously has to be the last recipe we make of the day… and then I tell everyone I know to come over and have a glass.

Heck, take a go-cup!

Aren’t these cups just too adorable?

So!

I’d love to know what your Easter brunch, lunch or dinner spread will include. We are headed to my brother’s house on Easter morning for brunch since we’re currently kitchenless, but I’m hoping for some desserts in the form of coconut and peanut butter chocolate eggs.

Also. How perfect would this be for your adult treat at an egg hunt? Oh yes.

  • 2 cups fresh pineapple cubes
  • 2 oranges, cut into slices (I love cara cara oranges)

strawberry puree

  • 2 cups quartered strawberries
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions:

Place the fruit in the bottom of your punch bowl. Pour the champagne, juices and sodas over top. Add a few ice cubes if you really need it chilled! Fill some frosty glasses with crushed ice and serve your punch. Garnish with extra oranges and strawberries!

Blend together the strawberries and water until smooth and blended. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to strain any solids. You have your strawberry juice!
