Sparkling Cranberry Pineapple Punch

This Cranberry Pineapple Punch is crisp refreshing and loved by adults and kids. Perfect Christmas Holiday Punch! And it’s totally easy; just add and stir!

This Sparkling Cranberry Pineapple Punch was made possible by the one and only Dole. Their pineapple juice is known on the street as the “King of Juices™.” It’s kind of like going to Hawaii and squeezing the juice out of a fresh ripe pineapple (minus the traveling and the squeezing). That’s the secret ingredient here: 100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice!

This fizzy holiday punch has just the right amount of sweetness and is loved by grown ups and littles (my son’s favorite “soda”) so it’s perfect for any party. It works because lime goes well with cranberries and ginger goes well with pineapple but so do cranberries and lime – I might have done a little research in The Flavor Bible – cool tool by the way.

The combination is crisp, refreshing, and super enjoyable. It’s also very pretty, which is important when you want to jazz things up for the holidays. The cranberries absolutely sparkle next to the fresh lime.

Oh yes and one more thing: this Christmas punch is totally easy, like add and stir.


It’s so crisp and refreshing! You’ll want to go ahead and make a double batch ;).

What I LUV about 100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice is that it’s non-GMO and their packaging is BPA-Free! Hooray Hoorah! For reals that is such a big deal for me and I feel good about serving it to my fam-bam.

It has an exotic refreshing taste and it’s great on its own instead of OJ, but it also takes punch and smoothies to the next level. Most grocery stores carry it in 46 oz cans or a 6-pack (6oz cans), either of which work for this recipe.

For easy mealtime inspiration and a few chuckles, check out their YouTube channel. You can also find them on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.

    Hi Natasha, congrats on making the Forbes list. Well deserved!!! I’ve been a huge fan of your blog. Every recipe I’ve made turned out amazing and even my picky kids love the food. I have a question about this recipe. Can I add alcohol to this and if so, what kind? Also, can you recommend some recipes to use for a bridal shower?

    Thanks again for your hard work and creativity. Reply

      Hi Galina! Thank you thank you!! 🙂 We are so excited about that and truly thankful. I’m so glad your family and kids love our recipes. That makes me so happy. 🙂 I haven’t tried adding alcohol but one of my readers wrote in with the following: “Some of the adults added Limoncello (alcohol) to their glasses.” Reply

    You do know that there is no such thing as GMO pineapple, right? Reply

    I made this for our annual solstice party last week – thank goodness I tripled the amount as it was a huge hit with children and adults! I mixed up everything but the ginger ale the morning of the party (in a big stock pot), and added the ginger ale right before I put it in the drink dispenser.

    Some of the adults added Limoncello (alcohol) to their glasses. Reply

      Hi Beth, we always serve it virgin since we don’t drink alcohol, so my opinion would only be a terrible guess.
      Has anyone else tried? Let us know and thanks in advance! 🙂  Reply

      Hi David, I don’t drink alcohol so I haven’t experimented but one of my readers, Martha, writes: “You can make this a great crispy night drink by adding a little vodka and rum.
      Yummy” Reply

        Did you sub the champagne for the ginger Ale? Or did you use both? Reply
