This Ruby Red Grapefruit Punch is SO simple and delicious. The no-alcohol base makes it a punch both kids and adults can enjoy! Recipe gives the option to make it a cocktail too.



Orange Simple Syrup:

  • 2 L club soda or a grapefruit Italian soda
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup orange simple syrup


  • grapefruit slices
  • lime slices
  • pomegranate seeds
  • ice cubes


Orange Simple Syrup:

  1. In a small saucepan boil the sugar, water and orange rinds together until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Let cool completely. 
  3. Remove the rinds and strain any orange bits.
  4. Set aside.


  1. To a large punch bowl add the grapefruit juice, lime juice and orange simple syrup.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Garnish with slices of grapefruit and limes, and pomegranate seeds.
