St. Patrick’s Day Punch

Welcome to our last day of St. Patrick’s Day Recipes! We are finishing up with drinks! There are lots of fun St. Patrick’s Day Drinks around, a couple of my favorites…Shamrock Shake and Irish Cream Pie Shake, but I’ll have to say…this St. Patrick’s Day Punch just might be a new favorite!

I remember growing up and my Mom used to always serve punch at gatherings and for the holidays. Punch is inexpensive and a little goes a long way. Soda can get expensive, and the kiddos usually end up wasting a half a can or more.

This punch is made with only 3 ingredients, and even though we are sharing it for St. Patrick’s Day, I think it would make a refreshing addition to your Easter buffet, Spring Party or even a maybe shower. We used Lime Sherbet, but if you want a different color or flavor just substitute.

For a festive touch, we added plastic shamrocks and gold coins to the punch, and for garnish, a wedge of lime, maraschino cherry and shamrock. Doug found a necklace at Walmart for $.97, and he just cut it apart to use the shamrocks. The gold coins were left from our Rainbow Fruit Skewers, as well as the necklaces, we found those at Walmart too.

Now of course, this punch is kid friendly, with no alcohol, but for the adult crowd you could certainly add vodka.

  1. I’m allergic to pineapple. Could I use apple juice or orange juice instead???

  2. How many serving would you say this makes? I’m supposed to bring St. Patrick’s Day punch to work on Monday to serve 12 people. Would this be enough? Thanks for the recipe!!!

  3. Oh my – this sounds sooo yummy! I love to surprise my family with a new punch recipe…this is next!

  4. I’m having a party at work for about 80 people how much do I need.

    • Hi Geri, depending on how large the glasses are, this recipe will serve about 15-20. I’d buy extra just in case, I always like having more than run out. And the ingredients will keep very easily.
