Ice Tea Fruit Punch

For the hot weather usually associated on Labor Day, you’ll need some refreshments to go with that BBQ. This recipe is kid friendly, tasty and thirst quenching too!

Ice Tea Fruit Punch
  • 16 small tea bags
  • 2 quarts boiling water
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 6 cups grape juice
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 8 cups cold water
  • 32 oz ginger ale
  1. Add tea bags to boiling water and steep for 3-5 minutes; remove tea bags.
  2. Let tea cool and add the next 5 ingredients, refrigerate until serving time.
  3. When ready to serve, add the ginger ale and have lots of ice cubes on hand.


This punch is best if using fresh lemon and orange juice, it just takes a little more time!

For me, I’d like to add a little vodka but husband won’t let me drink it any more! A story for another time, maybe I’ll slip in some gin instead…………Enjoy your Labor Day cookout!
