11 Best Party Drinks for Kids and Tea-Totallers

Ethan Miller

If you’re planning a New Year’s Eve party for the whole family — or for people who don’t drink — here are some of my favorite punch recipes.


1-2 cups of white sugar (to taste)
6 cups of water
2 (3 oz.) packages of strawberry-flavored gelatin.
1 can (46 fl. oz.) pineapple juice
2/3 cup lemon juice
1 quart orange juice
2 (2 liter) bottles of lemon-lime soda

Boil the sugar, water and gelatin. Stir in the juice. Freeze in ice cube trays. Then add to soda in a punch bowl and stir until slushy.



Combine 1/2 gallon of orange sherbet, 1 two-liter bottle of ginger ale and 1 can (6 oz.) can of frozen orange juice concentrate.



2 cups of water
2 cups of white sugar
1 (12 oz) can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 (12 oz) can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 pint orange sherbet
1 liter ginger ale
1 liter carbonated water
1 jar maraschino cherries
1 orange sliced in rounds
4 cups of ice

Boil the water and sugar until a syrup. Combine juices, water and ginger ale. Add sugar syrup. Add ice and sherbet. Add floating orange rounds with cherries on top.



1 package of blue unsweetened drink mix
1 two-liter bottle of lemon-lime soda
1 (64 oz) bottle white cranberry juice
8 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 cup white sugar (to taste)

Add all ingredients but add the sugar last to sweeten to taste. Add the ice cream early enough that it melts a little, but not completely.



1 (12 oz) can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 (46 oz) can sweetened pineapple juice
1 3/4 cup lemon juice
1 gallon water
2 cups white sugar

Combine and stir



1 (32 oz) bottle apple juice chilled
1 (12 oz) can frozen cranberry juice concentrate
1 cup orange juice
2 liter bottle of ginger ale
1 apple sliced in thin rounds to float on top

Combine and serve chilled.



2 lemons sliced in rounds
3 large oranges sliced in rounds
1 (6 oz) can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 liter club soda
2 bottles of sparkling apple cider
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 trays of ice cubes

Allow the juice concentrate to melt. Combine all ingredients, add sugar to taste, add fruit rounds to float on top.



1 envelope/package of unsweetened grape drink mix
1 package of unsweetened orange drink mix
1 liter of ginger ale
2 cups white sugar
3 quarts cold water

Combine ingredients, stir and chill.



1 (46 oz) can pineapple juice
1 (46 oz) can apricot nectar
1 (6 oz) can frozen limeade concentrate
2 liter-bottle of lemon-lime flavored soda

Set some juice aside to freeze into an ice ring to float on top. Combine and serve.



1 gallon Berry Blue Typhoon “Hawaiian Punch”
6-8 scoops Country Time Lemonade mix

Mix, stir and pour half into ice cube trays to freeze. Combine all elements before serving.



1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup decorating sugar
1/2 cup castor sugar
Lemon slices
2 liter-bottle of fruit-flavored sparkling water
2 cups frozen blueberries or strawberries

Keep the fruit frozen. Freeze the marshmallows.
Combine the sugar in a flat plate. Use the lemon slices to give party glasses a sticky rim around the top. Dip those rims into the sugar to look like salt on a cocktail or margarita glass.
In a punch bowl add the fruit-flavored sparkling water, frozen marshmallows and frozen fruit. Serve in the sugar-rimmed party glasses.
