  1. I’ve been making this punch for years and it is always raved about!

  2. This is great, even my hubby, who doesn’t like pineapple, likes it. Great recipe when your store doesn’t carry the holiday punch. I make sure to strain my pineapple juice.

  3. The best! Make it every year! Family holiday tradition!

  4. Very delicious and crisp! Great punch recipe! Add some Cheerwine Sherbet from FoodLion for an extra boost 🙂

  5. We love making this punch for any holiday, but especially christmas. It’s great for any occasion, and especially good if you freeze part of the mix and blend it rather than having a frozen floating ring. This gives a slushy consistency which is perfect for those hot “winter” days we have in the south.

  6. This recipe is so simple to make and delicious. For the adults in the group, I changed it up nd added spiced rum although the recipe is awesome as is.

  7. Very simple to make. We add spiced rum for the adults.

  8. This is a easy and great tasting punch for any holiday party or just because you love Cheerwine.

  9. This is a family favorite and I haven’t met one person who doesn’t like it.
    Try it out if you haven’t!

  10. This is a favorite among my church and family! We make it for the church Christmas play every year and for family gatherings. We even make a diet version for us diabetics. Always delicious!

  11. I crave this punch all year long. It’s the perfect combination of flavors. Who says you just have to have it at the holidays?! I make it in a pitcher and by the end of the day, the family has gulped it all down! Love it!

  12. We serve this at The Museum (MT. Pleasant, NC) Christmas Open House!

  13. Awesome Recipe….BIG Hit for my Family

  14. We have started keeping pineapple juice and Cheerwine in the refrigerator at all times, finding that this punch is delicious year-round. (I must say, though, we prefer it without the ginger ale.). We just pour one large can of pineapple juice and one 2-liter bottle of Cheerwine into a gallon-sized pitcher, stir, and serve!

  15. Made this for 2020 Christmas dinner and all but one loved it. That one does not like pineapple juice.
