Ingredients

  • 3 cups blackberries
  • 18 canned lychees (from one 20-ounce can), plus 3/4 cup syrup from the can
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups sweetened acai juice
  • 1 cup blueberry juice cocktail
  • 18 large blueberries
  • 3 cups lemon-lime soda
  • 1 cup spiced rum or gin (optional)
Berry Eyeball Punch

Directions

Puree the blackberries, lychee syrup and lemon juice in a blender. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher, pressing on the solids with a rubber spatula. Add the acai juice and blueberry juice. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.

Gently push a blueberry into the cavity of each lychee. Transfer the punch to a punch bowl or pitcher and add the stuffed lychees, then gently stir in the lemon-lime soda and rum, if using. Serve over ice.
