Nonalcoholic Ginger Pineapple Sparkling Punch

A Nonalcoholic NYE Drink: Ginger Pineapple Sparkling Punch

If you're looking for something to toast the New Year with but aren't a drinker, I've got your solution — this festive ginger pineapple punch. It's sparkly and bubbly like champagne, but you won't end up with a dreaded hangover the next day. It's also not overly sweet, and the ginger gives it such a nice kick, you won't miss the booze.

If you do have guests that will be drinking, this punch mixes nicely with alcohol. Just leave some bottles of gin or vodka out that they can add to their individual glasses. The ginger syrup also tastes good on its own when mixed with sparkling wine or soda water.

This sounds great! I don't drink, though my husband does. He's been bugging me about having a drink with him on NYE, and I'm excited to have something new and tasty that doesn't require alcohol. Thanks for the recipe!

Hi zeze,You can absolutely use one cup of sugar instead of the agave nectar. In the past, I have made it using 1 cup of sugar and it came out great. Just make sure you use granulated white sugar, it works much better for making simple syrup.

This sounds really good, I wonder, can I use plain sugar and not change the recipe and/or directions. Meaning still one cup sugar and make into a ginger syrup?
