Orange Cocktail Ingredients

Triple Sec
Orange Juice
Cranberry Juice
*optional orange slices


1. Can I swap vodka for another alcohol? You betcha! White rum or spiced rum make great alternatives if vodka isn’t your go-to spirit.

2. Can I use other types of juice? Sure, mixologists! Feel free to sub in pineapple juice, pomegranate juice, or even a splash of lemonade concentrate to switch up the flavor profile. Your punch, your rules!

Tips and Tricks

1. Chilled Ingredients: Before you start, chill all your ingredients. A hot drink on a hot summer day? That’s a no from me, darling.

2. Ice Ring: Add an ice ring to the punch bowl for a sophisticated touch. Freeze some orange juice or a mix of fruit juice in a bundt pan overnight, and you’ve got yourself a stylish and functional centerpiece.


1. Sherbet Punch: Add scoops of orange or raspberry sherbet to make it a sherbet punch. A party in a glass, perfect for baby showers and bridal showers!

2. Blood Orange Punch: Switch the regular orange juice to blood orange juice for a visually striking and slightly tangy twist.

Where to Serve

This punch is a star at any social event. Serve it at a Halloween party, a bridal shower, or just at a backyard BBQ. Trust me; it’s always the life of the party.


After mixing, you can store the punch in a large pitcher in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can even freeze it in ice cube trays for a quick, ready-to-go adult drink next time you’re in need.

Common Problems and How to Avoid Them

1. Diluted Punch: Avoid adding too much ice to your punch bowl. The ice ring should keep it cool without diluting the punch too much.

2. Too Sweet: Balance the sweetness by adding a splash of lemon-lime soda or some fresh lime juice.
