Spiked Jolly Rancher Punch


Jolly Rancher punch? Oh yes. I made this last year for our Halloween party and not only was it a total hit, but it was super easy to make! And it tastes like a yummy Jolly Rancher, but not as sweet… I obviously prefer a handcrafted and muddled cocktail, but when you’re hosting a party and you have many guests coming in and out, it’s almost impossible to create individual cocktails for each person. And you definitely don’t want to be hanging in the kitchen the whole night! So instead, just whip up this punch, pour it into a punch bowl or dispenser, add ice about 10 minutes before everyone arrives and watch your guests enjoy this yummy spiked punch! Just make sure you check on it throughout the night because I guarantee you’ll need to refill it once… or twice ; )

Jolly Rancher Spiked Punch
3 cups pineapple juice
1 bottle cranberry juice (64 ounces)
1 bottle Sparkling apple cider
1 bottle ginger ale (1 liter)
1 bottle passion fruit or raspberry-infused Skyy vodka

    Hi! I’m making this recipe for a bachelorette party. Can you tell me how much apple cider and vodka specifically? Thanks!


    1. February 26, 2013

      Hi Jennifer! One bottle of each, so about 25 ounces of apple cider and 25 ounces of vodka. Or 750ml. Hope that helps!!

    You think it would still taste as good if I used rum?

      I love rum so I think it could be good still. You can also alter the recipe to taste… so add more juice or pineapple, etc. Let me know how it is!

    When do you add the soda and sparkling cider? I don’t want it to sit out and get flat!

      Hi Kelly! I add it all together with the ice. It’s not really a fizzy, bubbly cocktail. It’s really for the flavor, which is delicious and adds just a touch of texture. Hope that helps 🙂

    Do you use just regular sparkling apple cider like juice? Or an alcoholic apple cider?

    Do you know about how much this recipe makes? I’m trying to decide if I need to double it for my party.

    1. Eden

      Hi Katina! It makes about 20 cups with all of the ingredients…. you can double it or just add more of one thing you like the most like extra apple cider or something! Cheers!!!

    What is the difference in Sparkling apple cider, and apple cider?

    1. Eden
      October 25, 2016

      One is sparkling with bubbles and the other is flat.

    Do you think this would still be good with Sprite, instead of Sparkling Apple Cider? Or, is the apple cider what gives it the taste?

    1. Eden
      October 26, 2017

      I think the apple cider does contribute a lot to the taste making it taste more like a jolly rancher.

        I actually made this awesome recipe last year and am getting ready to make again. I substituted the sparkling apple cider for a combo of Champagne and Apple Cider… it was great and added a little more booze!
