Ingredients Needed To Make A Mixed Berry Punch Recipe
- One part Simply Juice Drink Mixed Berry
- Two parts Prosecco (or sparkling grape juice for a family friendly option)
- Splash of simply syrup
How To Make A Mixed Berry Punch Recipe
I broke the recipe up into parts rather than exact quantities so you that could make the batches as big or small as you need based on the size of your party.
We used a full bottle of Prosecco to almost half a bottle of mixed berry. And it was the best portion for a full punch bowl.
All Simply Juice Drink flavors are made with simple ingredients and real fruit juice.
This punch recipe is also really good with the other new flavors like Simply Tropical and Simply Fruit Punch. And they’re just as good as the mixed berry version.
We just liked the idea of using the berries for garnish. We also made frozen berry ice cubes to add a little punch to the punch bowl. Pun intended!
Materials And Tools Needed To Make DIY Brass Drink Tags
- One Brass metal (depending on how many name tags you’ll need)
- Hole punch
- Mini letter stamp set
- Stamp pad
- Thin brass wire
- Fine sandpaper (optional)
How To Make DIY Brass Drink Tags
To make the tags:
On the small section of the brass metal sheet, stamp a name with the stamp set and washable ink pad. We used a washable ink pad so that you can wipe down and reuse the tags for different occasions.
Cut out the name in a rectangle shape with scissors.
Make a small v-shape at one end for added interest.
Next, hole punch one end and insert a small loop of brass wire.
Twist the ends together with your fingers so guests can easily twist their tags onto a cup each time.
Optional: Use the fine sandpaper to smooth any rough edges of the brass sheet so they aren’t hazardous to the touch.
Disco Dust | More Ideas To Decorate Your Mixed Berry Punch
Want to skip the frozen fruit ice cubes? A small dish of edible disco dust in rainbow or gold is another cute way to add a fun garnish for New Year’s or other special occasions for guests to top off their punch with.
Please be aware that disco dust is used on cakes and decorative items. It is often consumed with specialty cakes and confections. However, disco dust is not considered a food item.
Please use with discretion and/or in very small portions. Although, I’d say whatever I ate playing in the backyard as a kid or chewing on crayons when my mom wasn’t looking is a lot worse than cake disco dust!

Disco dust is NOT “edible glitter”. Disco dust is plastic craft glitter and is not FDA approved as a food additive. It should never be placed on food or in a beverage.
It’s irresponsible to minimize advising people to put a plastic scrapbooking supply in food. The product link leads to a CK Product that is not edible and is clearly marked for decoration only.
I was wondering where you got the metal fortune cookies? They’re so cute!
I have never mixed drinks before, what is “simply syrup”?
The punch looks so refreshing and the tags are awesome!
Gorgeous and looks delicious!
I can’t wait to make the brass drink tags. That’s such a cute idea that I can see myself using over, and over again.
Yum yum yum. The ice cubes is genious. I am super excited to try this. Thanks for the great idea!
Love the brass tags! The fruity ice cubes are such a good idea too and the punch sounds delicious. I hope you have a very happy New Year! Really glad I found your blog in 2014 and I can’t wait to see what you create next year! x
