Orange grapefruit punch mocktail

This super easy mocktail recipe with ginger ale won’t have you missing any alcohol. Beautifully sweetened, fruity, and fizzy.

Some of my favorite things! Add this to your list of punch recipes with orange juice for your next party. A perfect party punch for a gender neutral baby shower, bridal shower, or summer family gathering.

I have recently discovered many non-alcoholic brands that offer the same boozy taste without the hangover. Genius! This Blue Hawaiian and Virgin Buckwacker recipes both feature non-alcoholic rum, Check it out!


  • Orange Juice – Purely preference here. We love the fresh flavor of freshly squeezed orange juice. Buying already prepared orange juice works perfectly well. Pulp-free orange juice if possible.
  • Frozen orange juice concentrate is great for using as well.
  • Tangerine Juice – Tangerine, clementine, mandarin.. I would use whichever you can get your hands on. Check below for an explanation of the different types of tangerines you could choose.
  • Unable to find tangerines? Use Pineapple juice instead.
  • Grapefruit Juice – Once again, try to prepare fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. The freshness that you get from fresh fruit is so rewarding, and not overly sweet with added sugar and sweeteners.
  • Ginger Ale – I’m sure we all have a favorite Ginger Ale. Being from Michigan I have to represent and use Vernors. My husband tells me I’m wrong, but he’s from California so he doesn’t understand my love of Vernors. Either way pick your favorite Ginger Ale.
  • Ginger syrup – I use this Ginger infused syrup.
  • Ice – Get fancy and try some fun-shaped ice cubes! I sometimes use a silicone ice cube tray

Picking Oranges

Oranges: An orange has a thick skin, is round, and typically has a tart flavor. Smaller than a grapefruit.

Mandarins: Type of orange category that the tangerine, clementine, and satsuma mandarin fall into. Easier to peel with its thin loose skin. They are sweeter and smaller than oranges.

Tangerines: Specific type of mandarin orange. Has skin that is a touch tougher and brighter orange. The taste is less sweet and more tart.

Clementines: The smallest of the mandarin oranges. Has smooth, shiny skin that is easy to peel. typically seedless and super sweet. These are what you would typically see as “cuties” at the grocery store. Very tasty!

Satsuma Mandarins: Another specific type of mandarin oranges. The most delicate of the mandarins, they’re the easiest to peel. Another citrus that is sweet and seedless.

Grapefruit: A grapefruit isn’t technically an orange. It is a citrus hybrid that was accidentally crossed between a sweet orange and a pomelo.

Mocktail -> Cocktail

Mocktail recipes, such as this one do lend themselves to a variety of alcohol additions.

Add 8 ounces of one of the following ingredients to your pitcher.

Each will offer a different flavor profile, so I would choose your favorite.

Expert Tips

-Do you really love grapefruit juice? Replace the Ginger Ale with grapefruit soda, or citrus sparkling water.

-Looking for a lighter bubbly option? Sub out the ginger ale for club soda or lime sparkling water.

-If you’re unable to come by Ginger syrup, you can use simple syrup in place of this.

-Swapping out Tangerine juice for Pineapple juice is a good swap if you’re unable to come by tangerines.
