Water Punch

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

I got this recipe for water punch from a friend.  I love to serve it at large gatherings.  It is much tastier than serving regular water.  It is sweet and refreshing.  Now it does call for one ingredient that you won’t have on hand and it might be a little tricky to find the first time you look for it.  It is well worth the effort though to make this yummy drink

The tricky ingredient is citric acid.  You can find it in some pharmacies.  I just get mine from my local health and nutrition store (similar to GNC).  It’s a great drink for when you want something other than water but don’t want a drink that is over powering or could end up staining your carpet.

  1. Flavored water went popular some time ago, right? It is refreshing to have a glass of water but a glass of flavored water is even better. Now add a little fizz into it and its perfect.

  2. And it looks like I’ve just found the drink to serve at our Memorial Day get together! Last year I made cherry limeades that were a huge hit, so we’ll see how this stacks up.
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. I make something similar to this all the time. I never call it ‘water punch’, but I will from now on (smile)…
