Need non-alcoholic punch recipe

I need a good punch recipe for a prom-theme birthday party (adult only).  I'd like to have a "Spiking Station" set up next to the punch bowl with rum, vodka, and tequila so people can add their own alcohol to taste.

I have googled punch recipes, and it brings up so many of them I can't decide which one to go with that will mix with well different types of alcohol.

Can you please give me your suggestions/recipes?  I feel like a moron for even asking this question, but I really would appreciate the help!!!!

Re: Need non-alcoholic punch recipe

  • Large punch bowl

    64 oz cranberry

    64 oz orange juice

    16 oz Rose's lime juice

    3 trays of ice

    Serves 20 as a non alcoholic punch.  With a spiking station, you can get more servings  This blend works with rum and vodka but I have not tried it with tequila.  When we last did a spiking station, we also put out cups of maraschino cherries, lemon wedges and lime wedges.  The kids (4-10) went mad for putting maraschino cherries in their non alcoholic drinks.   Since they kept getting drinks, we kept an eye on the liquour.

  • I get a lot of requests for this recipe when i make it.  Would go great with rum.
  • My Aunt recommended this one:

     Cappuccino Punch (serves 16)
    12 Cups Strong (double amt of coffee) Coffee (reg or decaf)
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 qt chocolate milk
    2 qts coffee or vanilla ice cream
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    Chocolate Shavings

    Brew coffee, add sugar while hot to dissolve
    Add chocolate milk, ice cream and vanilla

    When cool, add cinnamon (or else it will clump)

    Can be served like this with chocolate shavings on top OR serve frozen.
    Stir well, freeze until the day before use.  Defrost in refrigerator, break up the ice particles and pour into punch bowl.  Top with chocolate shavings.
