Vintage Wedding Punch Recipe (Non-Alcoholic)

After I posted yesterday’s champagne punch recipe, my daughters asked for a mocktail punch without alcohol. That’s a great idea. This refreshing citrus-y punch recipe is from The Kosher Gourmet Cookbook, by Mildred Miller and Bascha Snyder, now out of print. Like the champagne punch, this wedding punch is a wonderful white-glove vintage touch for your wedding reception, even without the white gloves.

The original recipe calls for floating scoops of vanilla ice-cream in the punch bowl, but I removed the ice-cream to keep the punch parve. Also, the thought of guests ladling bits of ice-cream into glasses along with the liquid punch brings to mind a picture of punch splashing onto your guests’ clothing, which might distract them from how wonderful you look. Of course, if the ice-cream floats work for your wedding, go for it!

If you put out a punch with alcohol as well as one without, label them with place cards or other appropriate notes.

Ingredients for Wedding Punch (No Alcohol)

  • 4 cups pineapple juice
  • 3 quarts lemonade
  • 3 orangeade
  • 1 can crushed pineapple
  • 2 quarts raspberry or cherry soda

Instructions for Wedding Punch (No Alcohol)

Combine the first four ingredients and mix well. When ready to serve, add the soda.

Make Ahead Option

You can mix the first four ingredients together the day before the wedding. Refrigerate the mixture. When you’re ready to serve, put the juice mixture into the punch bowl and add the soda.
