Here's everything you need to create this crowd-pleasing punch:


  • The Fruity Base:
    • 1 can (46 ounces) pineapple juice, chilled - The foundation of the punch, adding a tropical sweetness and vibrant yellow color.
    • 2-1/4 cups water - To dilute the sweetness and create the perfect consistency.
    • 3/4 cup thawed pink lemonade concentrate - Provides a tangy citrus flavor that complements the sweetness of the pineapple juice and sugar.
    • 3/4 cup sugar - Adjust the amount to your preference for sweetness.
  • The Bubbly Delight:
    • 2-1/2 quarts ginger ale, chilled - The key to the fizz! Ginger ale adds a delightful effervescence and a touch of ginger spice that cuts through the sweetness.
  • The Star of the Show:
    • 1 pint fresh strawberries - Fresh strawberries are the star of this recipe, adding vibrant color, a touch of tartness, and a burst of juicy flavor in every sip.


  1. Building the Base: In a large punch bowl, combine the chilled pineapple juice, water, thawed pink lemonade concentrate, and sugar. Give the mixture a gentle stir until all the sugar crystals vanish, leaving behind a smooth and perfectly sweetened base.
  2. Fizz to the Finish! Slowly add the chilled ginger ale to the punch bowl, stirring gently to incorporate it without losing the delightful bubbles. The ginger ale will create a beautiful fizz, so take your time to avoid overflowing the punch bowl.
  3. A Touch of Elegance: For a beautiful presentation, slice the fresh strawberries and add them to the punch bowl. The bright red color of the strawberries creates a stunning contrast against the yellow pineapple juice, making your punch visually appealing.


  • Chill Factor: For an extra refreshing punch, pre-chill your punch bowl and all the ingredients before assembling. You can even add ice cubes to the punch bowl just before serving for an additional cooling effect.
  • Sweetness to Your Liking: This recipe offers a baseline level of sweetness. Feel free to adjust the amount of sugar according to your preference. You can even add a splash of grenadine for a deeper red color and a touch of sweetness.
  • Fruity Twists: For a more vibrant flavor profile, consider adding other fruits like sliced oranges, chopped apples, or even a handful of blueberries.
  • Frozen Fun: If fresh strawberries are not in season, you can substitute frozen strawberries that have been thawed beforehand.
