Here's our formula for a summery celebration punch everyone will love: peak-season fruit, tart citrus juice, and just enough bubbly effervescence to feel like a celebration. Try one or all of our three refreshing combinations. Add a splash of white rum or tequila for an adult batch. Cheers!

Cook's Notes

We like Ceres brand guava and passion-fruit juices, and Ocean Spray tart-cherry juice, because none of them contain added sugar.

Variations

Strawberry, Lemon, and Guava:

Substitute sliced strawberries for cherries, lemon slices and juice for orange, and guava juice for cherry juice.

Blackberry, Lime, and Passion Fruit:

Substitute blackberries for cherries, lime slices and juice for orange, and passion-fruit juice for cherry juice.
