Who doesn’t love a Simple Punch Recipe for Mother’s Day? Well, I thought I would share a sweet and delicious fruit drink that my husband made when we first got married. I love that it is good either with or without alcohol, it is up to you which version you prefer.
But first off I need to ask you, are you planning anything special for Mother’s Day? Well, we are going to visit my mom who just happens to be also celebrating her 95th birthday on May 12th! I’m super excited that her birthday this year lands on the same day as Mother’s Day! So, it is a double celebration day!
So, in addition to my simple punch recipe for Mother’s Day, I am including eight of my friend’s yummy dishes We are all sharing our Mother’s Day brunch recipes. I added a few more of my desserts to round the total count of 11 brunch recipes.
Let’s start off with the drinks.
Here is my simple punch recipe for Mother’s Day. So, by the way, the whole recipe only has three to four ingredients and one more if you count crushed ice. Oh yeah, and we can’t forget to include the cute pink umbrella. Make sure to scroll down for the actual simple punch recipe for Mother’s Day.

Don’t Jackie’s Strawberry Lemon Crumble Muffins look incredibly yummy? I would be so tempted to only eat the top layer of crumble and my family would wonder who did this!
I just posted this Better Than Martha’s, Blueberry Buckle. Yes, that is what my husband calls this recipe since Martha’s Stewart’s recipe was a huge flop when I baked it!
This special cornbread recipe is good for brunch, dinner, dessert or snack. We nibble on it all day long when I have it around the house!
And finally, this fresh orange scone recipe is my version of Joanna Gaines, Magnolia Table’s Cookbook. It definitely is a keeper and such a perfect recipe.
A simple punch recipe for Mother’s Day
Just a little note, that if you want to make this drink sweeter than add more grenadine. If you love pineapple feel free to increase how much you put in yours. This is a recipe that begs to be altered to your taste buds. Also, add rum to it since my husband says that is what makes it so yummy. Since I don’t have the enzyme to breakdown alcohol I actually go with non-alcoholic mocktails.
Planter's Punch Cocktail
- 3 cups orange juice
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup grenadine
- rum add as much as you prefer

- Fill each glass to the brim with crushed ice.
- Pour drink into glasses and add whatever fruit you may like to it.

Ok a random image, I couldn’t help myself. I had to include some of these fun drink umbrellas! I’m not sure why I love umbrellas so much, but someday I would love to cover a bedroom ceiling with colorful umbrellas.
I had fun collecting all these great dishes and I hope you enjoyed this post. My simple punch recipe for Mother’s Day is such a refreshing treat any time of the year and not just for Mother’s Day.
