There are two fundamental facts in life that everyone should know: a party simply isn’t a party without punch and punch simply isn’t punch without Sprite.

Since time immemorial (well at least since 1961) people have been taking their punch and parties to the next level by introducing the unique lemon-lime taste of Sprite into the mix. Whether you’re working with pineapple rings or raspberry sherbet, Sprite is always ready to keep things refreshing and bring your punch recipe home.

If television and movies have taught us anything it is that no generation knew how to throw a better party than those denizens of the 1960s. So to prove just how great an addition Sprite can be to your New Year’s Eve party this year we’ve dipped into the archives and brought you this fabulous punch recipe straight from the Swinging Sixties.

The secret to great punch is Sprite. Your grandparents knew it, your parents knew it and now you do too.
