Southern Comfort Punch

Freezing the citrus slices keeps this refreshing punch cold without the use of ice.

  • Yield: Serves 12 to 20
Southern Comfort Punch

Source: Martha Stewart Living, May 1996


  • 6 lemons
  • 4 navel oranges
  • 2 six-ounce frozen lemonade, concentrate
  • 1 six-ounce frozen orange juice, concentrate
  • 2 liters lemon-lime soda
  • 1 liter Southern Comfort


  1. Line two baking sheets with plastic wrap, and set aside. Slice lemons into rounds as thin as possible. Arrange lemon slices in layers on one prepared baking sheet. Repeat with oranges; layer on second baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, until fruit slices are frozen.

  2. Just before serving, open the cans of frozen lemonade and orange juice, and place the frozen concentrates, whole, in a large punch bowl. Add the soda, Southern Comfort, and several handfuls of ice. Remove frozen fruit slices from freezer, and arrange over the top of punch. Serve immediately.

    Southern Comfort could be replaced with peach nectar, I think, since it is a peach-flavored liquer. I would start by adding 1 cup, taste, and then adding 1/2 cups until you felt there was a good balance of flavors. Of course, you could just omit that ingredient altogether--the punch would still be tasty.

    Followed recipe to the letter (made ice ring in a Bundt cake pan, 1/2 full, even) and it turned out terrific! Everyone loved it! If I was to make again for Christmas, I would freeze mint into Bundt cake ice mold (so that it looked like a wreath), and freeze some cranberries along with lemon

    Can you replace the Southern Comfort with something non-alcoholic, like club soda or ginger ale?

    We take the concentrate (about 2 cups of solid concentrated juice, with added sugar) and add water to this to dilute. For example, if we purchase frozen orange juice concentrate in a can, we'll add three cans of water to the concentrate to make juice to drink.

    This punch recipe rules. Ridiculously tasty. That being said, it's best not to let your guests see you make the second. The amount of Southern comfort freaks them out. :-}

    I highly recommend this punch recipe. I made it for our neighborhood Bunco night, and it disappeared VERY quickly. You might want to have ingredients for a second or third batch on hand!

    I would place the lemon-lime soda in the refrigerator to chill it. You can also put the Southern Comfort in the freezer. The alcohol will keep it from freezing. This will keep the punch cold longer.
