It’s hard to believe that November is here friends. Halloween has passed and we are running hard into the last two months of the year. I’ll be the first to admit that this is my FAVORITE time of year. Thanksgiving and Christmas parties are my jam bringing everyone together after a long and eventful year.
The festivities are not complete without a beautiful holiday punch! It’s time to dust off that punch bowl and fill it with a beautiful red and bubbly Christmas punch. Florida’s Natural Orange Juice is the perfect base to start with for so many drinks, but it works especially well here!
Blend the juices and champagne together (you can substitute sparkling apple cider if you need to keep it kid friendly!) and then add in plenty of orange slices, lime slices, pomegranates, and frozen cranberries. Delicious!
Using frozen cranberries – we love Cape Cod Select – is one of our Christmas punch tricks. First of all, the frozen cranberries make the punch look gorgeous! But they also help keep the punch cool and refreshing without watering down the punch.
We also love making champagne ice cubes to help with this issue! As they start to melt, they release even more flavor into the punch instead of it slowly withering as the party goes on.
Garnish the cute little crystal cups with plenty of the fruit and a few sprigs of mint for a beautiful Christmas punch that will have everyone coming back for seconds for!
- 2 750 ml bottles champagne (we like Brut but you can go sweeter if desired)
- 4 cups (32 ounces) Florida’s Natural Orange Juice
- 4 cups (32 ounces) Pomegranate Juice
- 2 cups (16 ounces) Lime Juice
- 1 (16 ounces) bag Cape Cod Select Frozen Cranberries
- Orange slices
- Lime Slices
- Pomegranate Seeds
- Chill all ingredients prior to assembly, if possible.
- Combine champagne, orange juice, pomegranate juice, and lime juice in large punch bowl.
- Add frozen cranberries, orange slices, lime slices and pomegranate seeds to the bowl.
- Add ice as needed. Enjoy!
Notes: freeze additional champagne or juices into ice cubes ahead of time to make the punch last longer throughout the night without getting watered down!
Sparkling apple cider can be substituted for champagne if a non-alcoholic variation is desired.
