Moscato Punch is my favorite sweet and fruity wine cocktail. Topped with fresh raspberries, it’s a perfectly refreshing and fun summer drink!
Full disclosure, I am definitely a margarita girl. But sangria and this Moscato Punch are close runners-up on my list of favorite cocktails. It takes a lot to persuade me to break away from my favorite margarita recipe, so trust me when I say that this Moscato wine punch recipe is the best of the best. Moscato is perfectly sweet and when you mix it with tangy pink lemonade and bubbly Sprite you get the perfect summer drink!
I get so excited knowing that summer is just around the corner! I love sitting outside in the evening, sipping a delicious cocktail while reading a book. I also love the summer because I get to visit with family that we don’t get to see a lot during the year. My family knows I make the best Moscato Punch, so I am happy to mix up a pitcher for everyone to enjoy together. It also helps that this recipe is so easy!
MOSCATO WINE PUNCH INGREDIENTS
Moscato Wine- You will need two bottles of Moscato wine for this recipe. If you’re entertaining a smaller crowd, or maybe just having a simple dinner for two, you can always half this recipe.
Pink Lemonade Frozen Concentrate- You can find this in the freezer section of your local grocery store. I typically use Minute Maid brand. They also have a raspberry lemonade version that is a delicious variation on this recipe!
Sprite- I use regular Sprite, though Sprite Zero is also an option. You can also make Moscato Punch with ginger ale instead of Sprite if you prefer or just happen to have it on hand.
Raspberries- I prefer Moscato Punch with raspberries, but you can top it with any type of berry you want. Diced strawberries or blueberries are both great options!
HOW TO MAKE MOSCATO PUNCH
STEP ONE: To a large pitcher with ice, add the wine, pink lemonade concentrate, and Sprite. Stir to combine. (If you’re making this punch ahead of time, skip the ice. Instead, add it to the glasses when you’re ready to serve.)
STEP TWO: Add fresh raspberries to the pitcher.
STEP THREE: Pour the punch into glasses. Add additional raspberries and some lime slices to each glass as desired. Serve and enjoy!
MOSCATO PUNCH IDEAS
If you know you love Moscato Punch and want more amazing recipes, look no further! I have spent lots of time trying tons of different Moscato wine recipes and flavor combinations. If you love this recipe, you will also love Moscato Pink Lemonade Punch. The two recipes are very similar, but one packs a pineapple twist you won’t see coming and definitely do not want to miss! One of my other favorites is Strawberry Lime Moscato Punch and its frozen cousin, the Strawberry Lime Moscato Wine Slushie. It really is no wonder why I love summer!
WHAT IS A MOSCATO DRINK
Moscato is a sweet wine that comes in a million different brands and varieties. Despite there being so many variations, all Moscato wines are made from muscat grapes and have a lighter, fruity flavor and lower alcohol content than other wines. It is often considered to be a dessert wine because of its sweetness and more often than not has a subtle fizz to it.
Moscato is of course a delicious drink on its own, but it also pairs amazingly well with juice and fruit combinations to transform into some out-of-this-world cocktails! When I see a bottle of Moscato, I see a hundred different drink ideas. The only problem is summer is never long enough to enjoy them all!
