Autumn Harvest Punch Recipe

I don’t know what it is about this time of year but I love harvest smells and tastes. This Autumn Harvest Punch Recipe would be so yummy either cold or warm! I love festive healthy drinks to enjoy with family and friends.

Fruity autumn harvest punch mocktail for Thanksgiving is delicious cold or warm in a slow cooker!

This time of year I always want something warm, but not necessarily tea or coffee. This autumn harvest Thanksgiving punch uses lemonade and orange juice and REAL fruit! How about that. Infuse the flavors and juice from real fruit by simmering this punch all day in your slow cooker before serving.

Here’s my favorite slow cooker because you can leave your food or beverages cooking all day on low or high. It’s no frills but it’s also less than $30 right now on Amazon!

Another reason I love this punch is it actually LOOKS like autumn, doesn’t it? It has all the colors of my front yard right now. It just makes any holiday or special dinner or gathering so much more special. The kids love it and will get excited when they see it! They can even take part in making it!

Who Invented Mocktails?

The original mocktail is the Shirley Temple. There’s a variety of competing claims about who invented it – several restaurants and hotels in Beverly Hills say they invented the drink for Temple when she visited with her parents.

Why is it Called Mocktail?

Due to the demand for more visually and aesthetic appealing drinks than normal soft drinks, the concept known as “Mocktails” was born for festive, non-alcoholic party drinks, or “mock cocktails”.

Rosemary Health Benefits

You may think about skipping the rosemary, because it’s just a pretty addition, right? But before you do, think about all the health benefits of rosemary and how much more FLAVOR it will add to this amazing autumn punch recipe.

Rosemary has a range of health benefits, including:

  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Improved digestion
  • Enhanced memory and concentration
  • It’s good for your brain function
  • Helps prevent brain aging
  • Slows and reduces cancer cell formation
  • Protects against macular degeneration

Do you have those weekends where you are just hanging out with your family and it feels so much like fall and you just want something yummy but not really wanting to bake anything? This is such a fun, healthy treat to give your family! You can even make it on a Sunday and have it all week long!

You can easily make a single serving or a large serving for a crowd. If there are any leftovers you can use the punch to make popsicles! What a healthy treat that is for kids – I hate those sugary ice pops that come in those plastic tubes. But you probably won’t have any leftovers…anyone who has a taste of this is going to want to finish it off.
