An Easy Festive Cranberry Orange Punch

holiday-hosting

Are you hosting a big get together over the holidays? Not sure what to serve?

I like to put out a big bowl of this super Easy Festive Cranberry Orange Punch! It doesn’t require any fancy ingredients – unless you want to get fancy. It’s a nice non-alcoholic signature beverage to welcome your guests with if you plan on doing any holiday hosting.

You can always leave out a chilled bottle of vodka in an ice bucket next to your punch in case anyone wants their drink spiked!

Now I know there are a TON of fancy punch recipes out there. I made this one with stuff you can buy at the grocery store, so you can simply combine all your liquids together, mix and enjoy! I usually make this about 20 minutes before my guests arrive so it’s chilled, but the ice is not melted. It’s a pretty easy recipe, so you could assign an older child to help out.

It’s a pretty big serving – so you know you’re likely not going to run out. 

I combined 1 x 64 oz bottle of cranberry juice with 2 cups of Sprite and 2 cups of orange juice in a punch bowl filled with ice. You could definitely use ginger ale or just soda water if you’d like. I like using a sweetened fizzy pop to contrast the tartness of the cranberry juice.

Garnish with orange slices, fresh cranberries and cinnamon sticks for pretty presentation!
