Shower Punch Recipe

This punch recipe has to be one of my favorite drinks that I remember Mama and my Grandmother making for every shower they hosted. And believe me, they hosted plenty!

Shower Punch Recipe from

With Mama’s large family and our church friends, it seemed like there was a shower just about every Sunday afternoon after church! So you better believe I was the first to sign up to sample a cup (or two) as this punch recipe was being made.

I think there are a few reasons they always turned to this punch recipe for parties and showers,  it is super easy to make and everyone loves it!  It doesn’t hurt that my family’s shower punch recipe looks beautiful when served in a large punch bowl with its beautiful ice ring of cherries and orange slices floating atop it. But seriously, nothing beats the taste!

    Yum! I have this bizarre love of punch… I just can’t get enough of it. I know I’d love this version, too. Is it OK to make punch just because? To celebrate Monday, perhaps?

    • 11

      Absolutely! Why not make some this week to celebrate spring? It’s worth a celebration!!!

  13. 16

    I love all the family recipes you share, this being one of them. Punch is one of favorites and maybe more so because it seems like I only get to have it on special occasions.

  14. 17

  15. 18

    My nephew’s birthday party is this weekend and I bet that this would work better than having to buy a bunch of different sodas. This looks amazing and I really like punch.

  16. 19

    This sounds absolutely refreshing. I loved being a part of this surprise shower for Amanda, and I am so happy to be a part of our wonderful group. You are all fantastic!

  22. 25

    Sounds delish! Not sure I’ve ever seen a can of Hawaiian punch. How big is the can, and do I find it in the juice section? Thanks!!

    Hi. The punch looks amazing! I was hoping to make it next weekend, but I had a question. Is the Hawaiian Punch a can of frozen concentrate or is it a soda can of hawaiian punch? Thanks!

    Today, I went to buy the ingredients for this because I’m hosting a baby shower this weekend. I’ve got a couple of questions…The hawaiian punch comes in gallon size bottles or like single serving size bottles and cans. Which one do I want? Also, for the ice ring, I found 10oz jars of maraschino cherries. Do I drain them or add the juice to the ice ring? Thanks!

      Hi Sarah,
      I called my local grocery store to see what sizes of Hawaiian Punch is available before I answered you, just to be sure. I knew the last time I made this punch a few months ago, I couldn’t find the large can in my store. The manager told me that the large cans are no longer available. So, you’ll want to buy the gallon size bottle and only use 1/2 of it for the recipe. This punch goes so fast though, that if you are serving a large crowd, you may want to buy the materials to make two batches. :)

      For the cherries, the 10-ounce jar is fine. You’ll want to drain them before adding into the bundt pan for the ice ring.

      Hope you love this punch as much as my family always does!
