Raspberry Punch

Cranberry Punch

•1 liter ginger ale
•2 limes, thinly sliced
•6 sprigs fresh mint
•6 cups ice


Half-fill 6 tall glasses with ice. Fill to about three quarters with cranberry-apple juice. Pour ginger ale evenly into the glasses. Stir gently. Decorate with lime and mint sprigs.

Hot Cider Punch

This is a good option for cold weather, and can still be made festive for Valentine’s Day.


•3 cups apple juice
•2 1/2 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
•2 cups cranberry juice
•1/4 cup brown sugar
•2 cinnamon sticks
•2 teaspoons whole cloves
•2 teaspoons ground allspice


Stir the apple juice, pineapple juice, and cranberry juice together with the brown sugar in a large pan. Place the cinnamon sticks, cloves, and ground allspice into a large teaball or cheesecloth bag. Place the spice bag into the pan with the juice mixture. Heat the juice mixture over medium-high heat about 10 minutes. Serve hot.

Keep in mind that you don’t necessarily need a special recipe to make your drinks festive for Valentine’s Day. Some other ideas include:

•Make heart shaped ice cubes out of the punch (or water.) Trays can be purchased inexpensively.

•Using a cake pan or special mold, freeze the punch into a heart shape and float it in the bowl

•Use festive glasses

•Float edible flower petals in the punch bowl, or freeze them into the ice

These are just a few great drink recipes to make your Valentine’s Day festive and delicious!
