Rudolph’s Rockin’ Pomegranate Jingle Juice Punch.
Rudolph’s Rockin’ Pomegranate Jingle Juice Punch…the best Christmas Eve Punch.
It’s so hard to believe that Christmas Eve is tomorrow. The month of December has flown by so fast, but I can’t wait to spend the next few days with my family.
I finally spent some time this past Thursday planning out our holiday dinners and cocktails. Unfortunately, I was unexpectedly without running water for twenty-four hours, which meant zero cooking time. Instead I spent the time catching up on emails, planning out all the 2018 Healthy January content (can’t wait to share the fresh, but cozy recipes I have planned), wrapping gifts, and deciding just what to cook up over the next few days. It was nice to get a lot of “busy” work done, but being without water is zero fun. So thankful to have it back on!
PS. it’s a long story as to why my water was off, but basically it had everything to do with the new Studio Barn and the fact that we have well water.
Today I’m sharing my final Christmas Drink of 2017, and I think it might just be my favorite cocktail of the entire season. It’s simple, serves a crowd, and it’s delicious!
This fun punch recipe is a mix of sweet pomegranate juice, orange liquor, lime, champagne, and ginger beer. Yup, just five simple ingredients, but trust me, it is so good. I wanted to share an easy punch style recipe like this today because, let’s just be real, as much as I love mixing up individual cocktails, holiday parties are hectic and no one wants to be stuck mixing drinks all night…
Although I somehow manage to end up mixing drinks all night anyway. One, a pitcher of punch goes very quickly when serving seventeen plus people. And two, my family is very needy when it comes to drinks. Let’s just say they like variety.
Anyway, the point is, if you don’t want to mix drinks all night like me, than you need a really good, universally loved punch recipe. This is YOUR recipe. I’ve yet to meet a person who does not love a pomegranate based cocktail (or anything pomegranate for that matter). Even my picky family members love pomegranate juice. It’s their go-to juice mixer for any and all cocktails. The pomegranate base with the orange liquor and lime make this similar to a margarita, but minus the tequila and plus a whole lot of champagne.
The best part about this punch is that it takes maybe five to ten minutes to mix up. SO EASY.
I paired my punch with some festive sugared cranberries and a sprig of mint to make things a little fancy…ish. Perfect quick, easy, and delicious holiday cocktail.
Guys…I think that’s it from me until after Christmas. Taking both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off from posting, so I’m wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays for those who don’t celebrate Christmas.
Enjoy this time with family and friends!
