Holiday Everyday Punch

Canned tart cherries are generally found in the canned fruit section at your grocery store. As they’re not generally a big seller, they’re usually on the top or bottom shelf. Frozen berries and cherries are perfect for this recipe. Thaw the fruit in the refrigerator overnight (in a bowl to collect the juices) and proceed with the recipe as written.

Tip: To avoid watering down the final product with ice cubes, make a punch cube: before adding the seltzer and lime juice, pour about 1 ½ cups of the punch into a round plastic bowl or food storage container. Add a few fresh berries into the container and freeze until solid. Use your punch cube to keep everything nice and cold during service.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint raspberries
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 pint blackberries
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can pitted tart cherries, juices reserved
  • 1 bottle no sugar added acai mixed berry juice, chilled
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 1 liter lime seltzer water, chilled

Directions

  1. In a medium pot over medium heat, combine the raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and the sour cherries with their juices and bring to a low simmer (5 minutes).
  2. Reduce the heat to keep at a simmer and cook until fruit is soft (15 minutes). Pour the fruit and juices through a fine mesh strainer, pressing fruit with a spoon to release juices. Chill the juice (1 hour).
  3. To serve, combine the berry juice, the bottled juice, and the lime juice in a large punch bowl and stir. Add ice and pour in the seltzer to serve. If desired, garnish each serving with fresh berries.
