Christmas morning is a time for excitement and anticipation and a batch of this Christmas morning punch is a great way to add some holiday cheer into your day. The adults will love sipping on the fruity and fizzy blend of juice, lemon-lime soda with that little extra kick of vodka and raspberry liqueur.

For a variety of fun and festive grown-up Christmas cocktails, try our drunken Rudolph and spiked hot chocolate, both tasty adult hot chocolate drink recipes.

CHRISTMAS MORNING PUNCH INGREDIENTS

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups cranberry-pineapple juice blend
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup lemon-lime soda (like 7Up or Sprite brands)
  • ½ cup vodka
  • ½ cup raspberry liqueur
  • ½ cup grenadine
  • Ice for the glass
  • Fresh orange slices for garnish

PRO TIP:

This is a great recipe that can be modified according to your taste. For example, if you can not find a cranberry-pineapple juice blend, then you can just use equal parts cranberry juice and pineapple juice. You can also substitute the lemon lime soda for ginger ale or plain sparkling water. You can also adjust the proportions of each ingredient in this Christmas punch recipe.  

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

RASPBERRY LIQUEUR: If you want to save some money at the liquor store, you can buy raspberry-infused vodka (instead of the two separate items). I don’t suggest skipping the grenadine, though, because it gives this easy Christmas punch that beautiful color and a touch of sweetness to cut through the citrus juices.

HOW TO MAKE THIS CHRISTMAS MORNING PUNCH RECIPE

PRO TIP:

This is a small batch cocktail, so if you plan on serving it to a lot of guests during the holiday season, then it is very easy to double or triple this holiday punch recipe to make a big batch to serve your guests.

STEP ONE: In a 1.5-liter pitcher or punch bowl, combine the cranberry-pineapple juice blend and orange juice.

STEP TWO: Pour in the lemon-lime soda and vodka.

STEP THREE: Pour in raspberry liqueur.

STEP FOUR: Add the grenadine and stir well.

STEP FIVE: Top with ice cubes and garnish with slices of oranges.

PRO TIP:

You could also add fresh cranberries to your punch bowl or large pitcher for a bright pop of color.

HOW TO SERVE

Add this delightful drink to your Christmas day festivities along with a warm batch of caramel pecan cinnamon rolls. For the little ones, try our Christmas punch, which is just as delicious and fizzy without the alcohol added.

This festive holiday punch should be served chilled. You can make it ahead of time; however, I suggest waiting until you are ready to serve it to add the lemon-lime soda and ice to the rest of the punch ingredients. You want the soda to give that needed little bit of freshness, and you do not want your ice to water down your Christmas morning punch before you are ready to serve and drink.

MAKE-AHEAD: You can make a huge batch of this festive drink and then keep it in a covered and spouted container, in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days. Just be mindful that if you are making it ahead of time, remember to only add the lemon-lime soda and ice when you are ready to serve.

Fun, bright and festive, this Christmas morning punch is a delightful drink to serve all the adults on Christmas day or at a holiday party. The festive colors and delicious flavors will be a hit with everyone who tries it.
