I love that I can make the citrus base of this recipe ahead of time and top it with some bubbly just before serving. It’s got grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime, and it’s this beautiful bright yellow-orange color.

You only need a few simple ingredients to make this recipe. Most grocery stores will have what you need. Here’s what to add to your list:
- grapefruit juice
- orange juice
- sour mix
- simple syrup
- bottle of prosecco
- citrus slices, for garnish
Substitutions & variations
While this recipe calls for grapefruit juice and orange juice, you can add or swap many different citrus juices. Mango juice, pineapple juice, and cranberry juice would all be great substitutes. You could even mix in some white grape juice or pomegranate juice if you really wanted to change up the flavor profile.
Plain simple syrup is all that is needed to add that sweet flavor, but you can use a flavored syrup if you want. Something like peach simple syrup or cranberry syrup would add tasty fruit flavor. Or, you could change up the flavor with herbal syrups like mint simple syrup or basil simple syrup. Honey simple syrup would also be tasty!
How to Make Prosecco Punch
Follow this simple step-by-step guide to make the best grapefruit orange lemonade party punch:
Add the grapefruit juice, orange juice, lemon and lime juice into a large mixing bowl. If you make fresh juice, be sure that you strain out all of the pulp before mixing them together!
Then stir the simple syrup into the citrus juices. If the mixture is too tart, add more syrup ¼ cup at a time.
Put the mixture in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour.
Just before serving, transfer the sweet fruit juice mixture to a large punch bowl or pitcher. Add the prosecco and then garnish the drink with citrus slices.
When you are ready to serve, add 3-4 ice cubes to a glass and then fill with punch. If desired, top with more prosecco. Garnish with citrus and rosemary and serve!
What to Serve with Prosecco Punch
I love to serve easy cocktails with bite-sized appetizers at parties! These cranberry brie bites would be perfect with a glass of citrus punch, and so would bacon wrapped dates. Bacon fig and goat cheese crostini are great if you’d like something a little more fancy.
Tips & tricks
Check out these simple tips and trick to make sure that your punch packs a punch:
- Make sure to use prosecco that has chilled well! Mixing in room temperature prosecco will make the drink a weird temperature and that can mess with the flavor profile and the texture of the bubbles.
- Do not add the sparkling white wine to the punch until just before serving. This will ensure fresh bubbles that are crisp and inviting!
- Don’t want to water down the glasses with melting ice? Then freeze fresh berries like fresh strawberries or fresh raspberries. Then use them as the “ice” to keep each glass cold!

Citrus juices like cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, pineapple juice, orange juice, and grapefruit juice pair best with crisp and bubbly prosecco. Fresh fruit and fresh berries also go well with it too!
While the two are similar, they are not the same. Real champagne can only be made with grapes from Champagne, Italy. But prosecco is more than just “cheap champagne”. It has a very extensive and specific production process and has a beautiful light and bright flavor. This is why it is often used as a more affordable substitute to champagne.
