This is the best non-alcoholic tea-based punch! It's quick to make, but if you decide to freeze it into a slush, it'll take up to three hours to reach that consistency. If you'd like an alcoholic version, just add rum to taste.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups strong decafeinated brewed tea
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 2 12 cups orange juice
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 4 cups ginger ale


  1. In a punch bowl or large container make a syrup of the sugar and tea.
  2. Add fruit juices and enough water or more tea-- approximately 1 cup-- to make 24 cups (1 1/2 gallon).
  3. Freeze this punch base.
  4. Defrost and stir in ginger ale to make mixture"slushy".
  5. Serve in a large punch bowl.

YUMMY!!!! We had a tea party for my daughter's birthday yesterday and I made this. I didn't look closely at the recipe though and didn't have time to freeze it. So, I just threw everything into a big bowl minus the was great tasting! everyone loved it!

The students of my daughter's class always request this punch for their holiday parties. I double the recipe each time, but still run out. Even though 2-liter bottles of sodas are near the punch bowl, they always reach for the punch first and only reach for the sodas after the punch is gone. ---As a little decoration, I filled an ice tray with some of the punch base, dropped a maraschino cherry in each cube slot and froze overnight. I popped the iced cherries into the punch before adding the ginger ale.
