100% Juice Punch {Christmas Brunch}

Many of you know how much I used to love drinking Pepsi – and how giving it up has been a great decision for my health.  But you probably also know how much I miss that “burn”!

For the occasional treat, I like to put seltzer water into a small amount of 100% juice.  It’s not too sweet – but just sweet enough to make the fizzy water taste better.  And it gives me that burn I love and miss.

For our Christmas Brunch, I wanted to suggest this simple punch idea.  It’s 100% juice – no added sugar or corn syrup!

Christmas Brunch Punch

12 ounces 100% cranberry juice concentrate, thawed but cold
12 ounces 100% grape juice concentrate, thawed but cold
2 (or 3) liters seltzer water

Mix all ingredients together in a punch bowl or large pitcher.  The amount of seltzer water you use is up to you – depending on how sweet or fizzy you like your drinks.

Christmas Brunch Punch {with 100 juice!}

Feel free to add different kinds of juice depending on your taste.

Are you like me – do you like the “burn”?

    I love the sound of this punch! We always have a hot punch for Christmas, but I may have to find a place to fit this into.

    I’m a Dr pepper girl. I love it, but come to think of it, I haven’t had one in 4 days. I don’t miss it, and haven’t craved it, yet. I’ll probably give in when I do crave tho, because I hate the headache.

    Not a huge burn fan, but sometimes I do need some. And I typically use Sprecher ginger ale to quench it, but this would be even better as it uses fruit juice and isn’t a soda at all! But seriously Sprecher ginger ale is amazing and so different than any other ginger ale I’ve ever had.

    Sounds delicious! I’ve been wanting to try a different yet easy new punch. I think I’ll be serving this Christmas Eve with my extended family! Thanks!

    This sounds good.
    Yes, agree about the “burn”. Gave up Pepsi years ago. And I love ginger in all forms. Know any way to have ginger ale more healthy?

    Grew up mixing our juices to the strange looks from others. Now mixing of juices is so commonplace. Love adding just a touch of pineapple juice to really special up a blend.

    I made a healthy version of punch last year for our Christmas eve brunch. The children chose it over the sodas. I have not made it since last year. I look forward to adding the seltzer to my own recipe. I so enjoy your website ! Thank you, again for another healthy and yummy recipe:)

    I still drink Pepsi occasionally. It’s not the burn as much as it is the sweetness. I’ll only eat a salad for lunch if I can have a Pepsi with it. It’s a reward for eating salad. :)

    Well, now you know that some of us readers are definitely compromisers when it comes to food/drink! LOL :)

    This looks really good! I wonder what other kinds of juices would taste good? My middle daughter always throws up when she has grape juice, for some unknown reason.

    Nope, I don’t like “burn”. Guess I’m the weird one, but I’ve never really cared for sodas. I’m glad, though, because I know alot of people who are addicted to it.

    We grew up fighting for the burn. We always gave dad the first drink from a can of Pepsi. He said nothing tasted better than the burn from the first drink from a can of Pepsi.
    This drink looks delish!

    Me too! Sparkling juice is my favorite. If the seltzer waters it down too much, a few drops of Stevia help balance things again.
