When it comes to hosting Easter lunch, every detail matters. From the pastel-tinted table settings to the classic Easter ham, Southerners stick with tradition. But there's always room for a festive finishing touch that will spice up the family gathering, which is where a big-batch Easter punch comes in. It's easy to prepare, withstands the afternoon, keeps the crowd happy, and makes a pretty display in a punch bowl. Whether you're in the mood for a refreshing Lemon Mint Sparkler or a pretty Berry Splash, these Easter drink recipes will make a welcome addition to your holiday lineup and don't call for a single drop of alcohol. (Easter takes place on the Lord's Day, after all.) Keep these delicious punches ice-cold with a decorative ice ring to make sure your crowd will never find themselves feeling parched. We don't even think you should put all your eggs in one basket—make two or three different recipes and set up a festive punch bar for your guests! No matter your choice, one of these non-alcoholic Easter punch recipes deserves to make an appearance at your Easter celebration this year.
