Don’t forget about New Year’s! With the cranberries and bubbles, this Christmas Punch recipe is also perfectly festive for ringing in the new year.
Holiday Punch has a beautiful color for this time of year but it also has a bit of a tropical flavor. The pineapple gives it a tropical twist, so if you want to pretend you’re somewhere warmer, this sparkling cranberry pineapple punch hits the spot! It makes it taste so refreshing and adds a bit of sunshine to these cold winter days.

Because this can be a kid-friendly or an adult-friendly holiday drink, I like to rim the glasses with white sanding sugar sprinkles. It makes the cup look so fancy and festive while still tasting good for all ages. A trick I’ve always used for lining the rim of cups involves a tiny thin layer of corn syrup. This stuff is very sticky so a tiny bit rubbed gently onto the rim of the glass is all you need!
- pineapple juice
- cranberry juice
- orange juice
- 7-Up or champagne
This holiday season, instead of spending your time baking up some treats, why not give this Holiday punch a try? However, if you want to drink it, make certain that you pair it up with a giant helping of holiday cheer! You can pour in the Vodka or make it your new Non Alcoholic Christmas Punch Recipe.
You could even skip the 7-up and splash champagne in it for more of a mimosa-style drink. This is one of our very favorite drinks for the holidays.
