Ain’t no party like a punch bowl party.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: There’s no more surefire way to make a party one for the books than by mixing up a big bowl of fruity summer punch. Of the booze-y variety.

Since I’ve shared my signature holiday punch recipes before (that company party just got a whole lot more interesting), thought I’d round up the punch recipes from around the web that have been hits at my house during the summer, plus a few that are on my “to try” list! From tasty fruit-based punches to refreshing citrus infused punches, these recipes are sure to quench guests’ thirst at any of your summer shindigs.

Don’t delay: Make one this weekend! And major bonus points for icing it down with the most gorgeous ice ring ever.
