As the name suggests, this “Badass” New Year's champagne punch is truly that, with several bottles of differently-flavored liquors and two big bottles of rose champagne for more bubbles and joy. It's fruity, hearty, and garnished with plenty of sliced fresh fruit for an exquisite and party-ready presentation aimed to please.
The New Year’s Eve champagne punch is full of flavor, made with pink champagne, triple sec, blackberry brandy, Chambord, pineapple juice, and ginger ale. If you can't find any of those ingredients, you can supplement with a similar liqueur. For example, another raspberry liqueur works in place of Chambord or another flavored brandy if you can't find blackberry. The result is a bubbly and berry-flavored punch, garnished with raspberries.
The double threat of bourbon and vodka gives this punch its power and is a nice variation from the typical champagne-based treats you usually get around the New Year. Bourbon and vodka play nicely with ginger ale, lemonade, and orange juice for a fruity, deceptively strong drink you can garnish with orange wedges.
Of all the New Year's punch recipes on this list, this holiday punch gets an extra layer of flavor from an unconventional ingredient; almond extract.

You can even throw in a dash of flavored vodka to boot!
Use any champagne you might have on hand for this berry-heavy New Year's Eve berry champagne punch with brandy and chambord. Although you can make a big batch for parties, it's also perfect for serving individually with a few berries at the bottom of each glass. Make sure this one is ice-cold and present it in highball glasses or flutes.
White cranberry punch is the essence of winter holidays with its strong cranberry flavor and hints of crisp apple. The recipe combines sprite, white cranberry juice, sliced apples, and cranberry ice cubes to create a refreshing, fruity drink that people of all ages can enjoy. I like to freeze my apple slices to help keep the punch cold.
Prosecco punch includes multiple kinds of fruit juices, wine, white tea, and simple syrup to create a deep red, sweet, and fruity drink that your guests will rave about. The port wine brings in flavors of berries, while the prosecco brings in some citrus notes that mesh well together with the cranberry juice. I love the little caffeine kick from the white tea.
Hurricane party punch can be a non-alcoholic or an alcoholic punch, depending on what you’d like to include. The base consists of orange juice, lime juice, pineapple juice, and passion fruit syrup. You can then add grenadine or rum. I love how the passion fruit syrup balances the acidic taste of the other ingredients by adding a tropical sweetness to the punch.
Cranberry champagne punch simply combines sparkling wine, cranberry juice, and orange liqueur to create a tart and slightly sweet beverage that everyone will love.

Rum punch contains a few fruit juices, 7UP soda, and rum to create a deliciously sweet drink.
