Author: Chief Mixologist
  • 16 Cups water
  • 16 Cups sugar
  • 8 Quarts strawberries, without sugar
  • 4 Cups peach nectar
  • 2 Cups fresh orange juice
  • 1 Cup fresh lemon juice
  • 8 Quarts club soda
  • 3 Quarts club soda, frozen in cubes
  1. Boil sugar and water for 5 minutes or until a sugar syrup forms.
  2. Cool and set aside.
  3. (You may or may not use all or any of this syrup depending on how sweet you want your punch.) Put 3 quarts of club soda in ice cube trays and freeze.
  4. Pour peach nectar, orange juice and lemon juice into the largest mixing bowl you have.
  5. As you stir begin adding syrup until you get a strong sweet/sour flavor.
  6. You must have this base in order for the mix to stand up to being cut with the club soda.
  7. When it is strong enough and yet carries a light lemon flavor stop adding syrup.
  8. Pour into containers and refrigerate.
  9. At party time pour one quart into the punch bowl and cut with 1 1/2 to 2 bottles of club soda.
  10. Add a generous amount of frozen soda cubes.
  11. Float about 2 quarts of berries in the punch for decoration.
