Christmas in July: Christmas Punch

This punch is easy to make and oh so delicious and refreshing for your Christmas in July celebration. You’ll need a punch bowl or large pitcher in which you’ll mix all the ingredients.  As with all punches, this gets better with time so be sure to leave it in your refrigerator for continued enjoyment.

Ingredients:

  • Cranberry juice
  • Orange juice
  • Pomegranate juice
  • Pineapple juice
  • Rum (WC Choice: Plantation Pineapple Rum)
  • Lemon-lime soda, like Sierra Mist
  • Garnishes: fresh cranberries, pomegranates, and orange slices

Did You Know? Plantation Pineapple Rum is great around holidays and the pineapple is a symbol of hospitality.


Directions:

Step 1: You can mix everything except for the soda and ice cubes ahead of time. Add the soda and ice just before serving so it doesn’t start to go flat. For best results, make sure the ingredients are cold when you mix them together so the ice lasts longer and doesn’t water down the punch.

Step 2: Add pomegranate seeds, orange slices, cranberries, and a sprig or two of rosemary to garnish (for sophistication, of course). Oh and some extra holiday spirit by way of rum or vodka and you’re in for a truly festive holiday punch.

Pro Tip: For an extra fun garnish, freeze orange slices, fresh cranberries, and water in a silicone bundt pan to make an ice ring!
