This margarita punch we served at a recent bridal shower is actually a mocktail! If you’re looking for a nonalcoholic option for a party, this is a winning choice. It’s easy and make ahead, and you can personalize it to fit your sweet tooth!

Since we were embracing the joyful green color, I wanted a green punch. If you ever search pinterest for “green punch,” nearly everything has lime sherbet in it. Hmm. Lime sherbet’s not my favorite, and our bride doesn’t love super-sweet things.

Finally, I thought about margaritas! The irony wasn’t lost on me that I picked a nonalcoholic punch recipe based on a cocktail, but it fit in every other way, so why not??

First things first: you need an occasion. We grabbed our beautiful bride with a love of green and limes. You can use this for any party, or throw yourself a party just because it’s Thursday.

Easy ingredients, nothing too complicated.

After letting your concentrates melt a little, whisk them together with the sugar.

Make sure the sugar gets fully incorporated (aka no floaty blobs of powdered sugar). This takes a mix of good old elbow grease, and waiting to make sure it melts enough to take the sugar in.

Add the water! Then pour into a gallon bag and freeze until you’re party-ready.

A giant drink dispenser works perfectly, but I really like putting it in pitchers too. If you go the pitcher route, it divides nicely into two average-sized ones once you add the sprite and ice.

Most of the bridesmaids!

To decide on the amount of sugar, think about how you like your margaritas. Or you lemonade, if that’s more your speed. I like more tart than sweet in mine, so I went with 1/3 cup. But don’t forget that the concentrates and the sprite will also add sweetness.

Bonus: If you do want to add some excitement, grab your favorite tequila. I leave the ratio in your capable hands.

Margarita Punch

Prep Time5 mins
Freeze time4 hrs
Course: Drinks
Keyword: cocktail, mocktail, punch

Ingredients

  • cup powdered sugar
  • 12 oz frozen limeade concentrate
  • 12 oz frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 liters Sprite
  • 2 limes
  • tequila optional

Instructions

  • Before beginning, let your concentrates melt in the fridge.
  • Combine the lemon and lime concentrate in a large mixing bowl. Add the powdered sugar – I recommend sifting it first, this will make the whole process a little easier.
  • Add the water and put the whole mixture into a gallon freezer bag. Freeze overnight or at least four hours.
  • When you’re ready to serve, put the frozen mixture into a punch bowl or pitcher.
  • Add the sprite (and tequila, if you want) and mix well. The texture should be slushy but combine fully with the Sprite. I always add ice to keep it cold for hours, and mix in lime slices.

This serves about 20 people, so for a big party consider doubling! Plus, it keeps in the freezer. I’m considering making this and keeping it in the freezer all summer long for those nights you just need a cocktail.
