Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 cups coarsely chopped strawberries
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped pineapple
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 quarts seltzer water

Directions

  1. Make a simple syrup: Combine the water and sugar in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside until syrup is completely cool.

  2. Transfer syrup to a large container. Add strawberries, pineapple, pineapple juice, orange juice, and lemon juice; gently stir to combine. Fill two ice-cube trays with punch, and place in freezer. Place remaining punch in refrigerator to chill.

  3. When ready to serve, remove punch from refrigerator; add the seltzer water and frozen-punch ice cubes. If transporting, add the seltzer just before serving. Serve in a large bowl or individual glasses.
