Ah, the holidays. My favorite time of year. I love everything about this season: Starbucks red cups, Christmas lights, Black Friday deals, family togetherness and of course the food. We all have special holiday recipes we treasure, and while my family has plenty of main courses, side dishes and desserts, one thing that sticks out to me most is our Cranberry Gingerale, aka “Christmas Punch,” that has become as much of a tradition as the tree.
I added a new twist on it this year, giving the Christmas Punch a kick by using Cran-Apple juice and combining it with Gingerale. It is light and refreshing, with such a great mix of winter flavors that remind me of Christmas morning.
I have also included an option to turn this Christmas Punch into an adult version!
1 bottle Ginger Ale
1 bottle Cran-Apple Juice
Pitcher of Ice
Champagne (optional … for adults only)
Pour drinks over pitcher of ice and enjoy!!
