HOW TO MAKE THIS CHRISTMAS PUNCH RECIPE

PRO TIP:

You need a 96-ounce pitcher for this festive holiday punch. You can halve the recipe for a smaller pitcher – remember to use just half of the frozen juice concentrate. The full recipe also makes a nice large quantity for filling a punch bowl.

STEP ONE: Fill your glasses with ice cubes.

STEP TWO: In a large pitcher or large punch bowl, pour out the contents of the frozen juice concentrate.

STEP THREE: Instead of adding water to the juice concentrate, measure the ginger ale and add to the pitcher (3 cans or 36 ounces of ginger ale).

STEP FOUR: Add the cranberry juice and pineapple juice to the pitcher. Stir to mix frozen juice concentrate into the mixture.

PRO TIP:

The cranberry juice is what gives this delicious holiday punch its deep red color. If you want a deeper red punch, simply add additional cranberry juice – the flavor is still delicious.

STEP FIVE: Serve this fizzy beverage immediately over ice with cranberries, orange slices, and/or mint leaves for garnish. You can also add ice to the pitcher or punch bowl for serving a large group. 

PRO TIP:

Ginger ale will lose its fizz after a couple of hours. Mix the punch up just before serving. Likewise, ice will water down the punch as it melts. Add ice to the serving glasses instead of the pitcher.  

HOW TO SERVE

Not only would this sparkling Christmas punch be the perfect drink at your Christmas party, it would also be a huge hit on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. If you are serving this tasty drink while you are opening presents on the big day, how about our crockpot cinnamon roll casserole alongside? For the grown-ups, check out an alcoholic version of this festive punch with our Christmas morning punch.

STORAGE

This drink is best made fresh and will not keep at all. The ginger ale will lose its fizz and any ice will melt and water down the drink. 

Make this easy Christmas punch recipe your go-to drink this holiday season. It would be a welcome addition to your Christmas celebrations, bringing plenty of extra holiday spirit. The juice blend combined with the fizzy ginger ale give this holiday punch recipe the perfect balance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I use a different blend of juice in this recipe?

This easy recipe would be delicious no matter what flavors of juice you decide to use. Just stick with the above measurements and you’ll have a yummy punch to serve your guests.

You can either double or halve this recipe depending on how many people you need to serve. Just remember to adjust all the quantities including the frozen concentrate.
