Electric Lemonade Party Punch is a fun and easy cocktail recipe for any summer gathering; it will remind you of sitting at the pool at a fancy resort with every sip! I love making party punch recipes with vodka and this one is my new favorite version.

Best Party Punch

For the last 18 years I thought I didn’t like blue curaçao; I actively avoided it in drinks because I’d had a blue cocktail on my honeymoon and didn’t like it. Then I tried an Electric Lemonade at a resort in Mexico and fell completely in LOVE. If you love those, you’ll love this drink just as much!

I’ve been on a real cocktail kick lately (like Vodka Soda Party Punch and this other Lemonade punch with a funny name) and knew I was going to recreate the Electric Lemonade cocktail at home, as a punch recipe. I think outside of vacation, most people don’t just mix themselves a cocktail on a Sunday afternoon by the pool (they stick to vodka sodas or wine) but for parties and such people want punch!

Important Ingredients

The regular Electric Lemonade Recipe (if you’re just making one cocktail) doesn’t actually use lemonade; it’s made with vodka, blue curaçao, sweet ‘n sour and sometimes lemon juice. However, when I’m making a party punch recipe, I want it to be EASY so I changed up the recipe.

  • Lemonade – I used refrigerated lemonade in this recipe. Use your favorite brand!
  • Club Soda – Or you can use lemon-lime soda and skip the simple syrup
  • Vodka – you can use regular or even a citron vodka.
  • Blue Curacao – that’s why the drink is blue
  • Simple Syrup – if you’re not using Sprite

How to make your simple syrup

You can make your own sweet and sour mix or simple syrup so easily. Simple Syrup is basically equal parts sugar and water that are heated until the sugar dissolves, then cooled. To make sweet and sour, use lime or lemon juice instead of water.

If you want to make a lower sugar simple syrup, you can use sweetener (any brand or stevia) and just add it to water or lemon juice and shake to dissolve – no cooking needed.

How to make Electric Lemonade Punch Tips

  1. To make the party punch, just mix all of the ingredients in a pitcher. I like to add a bit of simple syrup to the cocktail and then leave the rest on the bar with the pitcher of punch so that guests can sweeten their drink even more. Most people like their mixed cocktails sweeter but some don’t, so having the option to do so is perfect for a party.
  2. Want to make Electric Lemonade with rum? You totally can, just substitute white rum for the vodka in the recipe.
  3. To make a Mocktail: Just skip the vodka and instead of using blue curaçao, make sure to buy a Blue Curacao syrup that doesn’t have alcohol in it. They often sell these syrups with the coffees or mixers in the grocery store.
  4. Garnish this with a lemon or lime wheel and/or some maraschino cherries.
  5. What type of glass is best – use a tall glass (also called a Collins Glass)

Recipe Notes

  • You can use purchased simple syrup or sour mix or make your own.
    • How to make simple syrup/sour mix: Heat equal parts water or lemon juice and sugar (1 cup each) over medium low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a jar and let cool to room temperature, use as desired. Store leftovers covered tightly in the fridge.
    • To make low sugar simple syrup/sour mix: Mix sweetener and lemon juice or water (3/4 cup sweeter to 1 cup liquid) in a jar, seal and shake, no cooking needed.
  • To make this non-alcoholic: omit the vodka and blue curaçao. Purchase Blue Curacao Syrup that doesn’t have alcohol (often sold with mixers or in the coffee aisle) and use it in place of the blue curaçao.
