Anyone for some punch?

I love a good punch and I never entertain without whipping up a punch of some description.

Last nights punch was fairly tame as far as punches go due to the number of people driving.

Cranberry punch
1 punnet of strawberries, quartered
2 limes, quartered
1 bottle of sparkling wine
700 ml of cranberry juice
1 litre of ginger beer
1 litre of pine/mango juice

Pour everything into a punch bowl and enjoy!

Variations on punch:

Lychee and kiwi
Replace cranberry juice with kiwi fruit juice and add lychee liqueur as well as the sparkling. Add passionfruit pulp and kiwi fruit instead of the strawberries and lime.

The best punches I’ve made have been the spontaneous, just throw it all in, variety and sadly I have no recipes for those!
