Pineapple and Beer Punch

You don’t have to be a master chef to master them, but with creations such as Pineapple and Ginger Beer Punch, you’ll feel like one! This fresh non-alcoholic drink is beautiful and cooling and will have your guests coming back for more and more!

Let me begin with a confession: I’m still crazy about this drink. About 2 months back my friend gave me this recipe, for our BBQ party. Later we tried it a couple of times on the behest of my wife, with variations as well. What prevailed was, ‘Love at first sight’, yes the original recipe.

Last Sunday we made this again. Yes again! We made this for a Prayer meeting at our place for about 25 people. It was the Wow’ factor. My friend and I made this just before the Prayer meeting, thinking I would be left with at least some, to take photographs. We were wrong, not a single drop was left behind. So much so, everyone wanted this secret recipe, the reason why I am posting this recipe so fast. Once I cook, write and photograph, it takes me ages to edit the written material and photographs to publish on my blog. Generally I am the lazy kind. Terribly lazy. Just like to sit around and do nothing. I am serious! I know you must be laughing. But who doesn’t like to be lazy?

On the upside, when I made this once again after the party for photographing, I had at-least 1 litre in one day. I am sure I will make it again…

Let me also tell you a little history about this word ‘Punch’ as it appears on Wikipedia. Punch is a loanword from Hindi Panch, meaning five. The drink was originally made with 5 ingredients and was introduced to England from India, during the British domination of India.

The list of ingredients seem endless for this humble Punch, but this is my personal guarantee, you will be left with the WOW factor for sure….

  • Pineapple Juice* – 500 ml
  • Ginger Beer** – 750 ml Pineapple and Beer Punch

  • Orange – 1
  • Lime – 1
  • Pineapple – 100 grams

Pineapple and Beer Punch


1 – Pineapple Juice – I used Tropicana juice from ‘not from concentrate’

2 – Ginger Beer – this is non-alcoholic and made of Ginger extract and Carbonated Water, if you are not able to source this product locally then best alternative is to use, 2-3tbsp Ginger juice mixed in Soda Water.

3 – To aid Honey to dissolve smoothly – mix Honey in lukewarm Water.

4 – on the rocks – is a common bartending term used by Whiskey drinkers, referring to a straight shot of liquor poured in a short glass filled with ice.
