This family-friendly punch made with strawberries, lemons, and pineapple juice is your new favorite summer beverage!
This drink right here is a legend in my family. My mom first made it over a decade ago for my sister’s wedding, and we’ve enjoyed it at nearly every holiday and family gathering since then.
It’s known simply as “wedding drink.”
But I know that doesn’t mean anything to any of you, so I’m calling it strawberry pineapple punch. It’s made with pureed strawberries, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and frozen pineapple juice concentrate. It’s simple, but refreshing and surprisingly irresistible.
This strawberry pineapple punch is family-friends— and boy, is the whole family going to LOVE it— but if you’d like to make it for adults only, I’ve included instructions on how to sub in vodka, rum, or your alcohol of choice. Or, keep everyone happy and serve the alcohol on the side, letting adults add it if they want.
Also, this recipe makes a pretty big batch, which is perfect for that party you’re planning! You can even make the pureed strawberry-pineapple-lemon juice concentrate up to a week in advance and store it in the fridge (or freeze for several months!), and then add the water and crushed ice just before serving.
We enjoy this punch year-round, but I particularly love it in the spring and summer. It’s the perfect refreshment for backyard barbecues and long evenings relaxing on the porch.
