What ingredients are in a Holiday Punch?

Our Holiday Punch is a drink the whole family can enjoy. Our recipe uses Cherry 7-up and white grape juice. The combination of these two flavors is so delicious! However, there are no limits to what you can use as a base for this punch. A carbonated drink along with a fruit juice is all you need. Mix and match to find your favorite! Here are a few ideas to get you started.

  • Cranberry Sprite and white cranberry juice
  • Sprite or 7-up and white grape juice (this makes a clear punch which is also very pretty!)
  • Sprite or 7-up and cranberry raspberry juice
  • Ginger Ale and cranberry cherry juice
  • Sprite of 7-up and cranberry lime juice

In addition to the punch itself, the berries, mint, and lime are definitely a favorite, but you don’t have to use all of them and you can make substitutions. If you aren’t a fan of mint and lime, no problem! Use orange and lemon wedges instead. You can also substitute blueberries or sliced strawberries. So many options!

How do you serve Holiday Punch?

Of course, a fancy glass punch bowl with fancy glass cups is ideal for a formal holiday gathering. If a gathering is less formal, the punch can be made in any large bowl or pitcher and served in clear plastic cups. The punch is also beautiful served from a decorative water dispenser with the berries, mint, and lime floating at the top. If served this way, have the berries, and mint already in the cups for your guests and a small dish of lime wedges for guests to add on the side.

This recipe serves 20, but it can easily be doubled or tripled for larger gatherings. If you aren’t sure how quickly the punch will go, or you want to keep it out for the evening, only make one batch at a time so it stays bubbly. Prepare the cranberries and keep them in the fridge along with the washed raspberries, mint, and lime slices. Keep the soda and juice cold in the fridge or in a cooler. When the punch bowl is running low, this will make it easy to quickly make a fresh batch.
