Hunch Punch Cocktail

A relative of Jungle Juice, Hunch Punch gets an entire fruit bowl worth of flavor thanks to the sweet fruit punch in the recipe. You can opt for either Hawaiian Punch or Kool-Aid Fruit Punch, depending on how you roll. Either way, you want something with the bright red color and tropically nostalgic notes of packaged fruit punch.

This recipe for Hunch Punch serves a crowd and looks as potent as it is, but the taste is totally smooth. The brightness of fresh pineapple and orange juice balance the sweetness of your packaged fruit punch, while a splash of Sprite (or any other lemon-lime soda you choose) gives the punch refreshing effervescence.

Be forewarned:You may not taste the booze in this high-octane party drink, but you’ll certainly feel its heavyweight hit after a glass or two. Pace yourself, serve with party snacks, and let this Hunch Punch recipe take you where you're going.
