Easy Holiday Punch Recipe!
I love making holiday food, but you can’t forget to put a delicious drink on the party menu. This Easy Holiday Punch recipe is the perfect Christmas drink for a crowd. With only five ingredients, it’s full of that cranberry goodness that everyone craves during the holidays.
Because I love both cocktails and mocktails, I’ve made this a recipe you can make with or without spirits for a festive holiday party head turner.
Who Doesn’t Like a Gorgeous Looking Punch?
You really can’t go wrong with making a punch recipe for a party. First of all, it’s super quick to make. Second of all, it’s always a great place for your guests to gather. If you make this holiday punch, your guests will certainly be talking about how tasty and gorgeous it is, never knowing how easy it was for you to make!
What You’ll Need for The Perfect Holiday Punch
First, you’ll want a large punch bowl to give this holiday punch the oohs and ahhs it deserves. A large pitcher will work fine, but I say go old school with a big ol’ punch bowl. Natalie, one of our talented party contributors, shot these photos and I LOVE her pretty punch bowl. You can find some gorgeous punch bowls similar on Amazon here and here.
Holiday Punch is Better with Fresh Fruit
A simple holiday punch must have beautiful fruit as garnish that makes people want to dive right into it. Adding slices of oranges, limes and fresh cranberries to this punch makes it a sure winner for your party! You can also get creative and cut your fruit into holiday shapes. My mom always used star cookie cutters for her holiday punch!
