Hey friends! The holidays are right around the corner and I am excited to start sharing some of my favorite Holiday drinks and appetizers over the next few weeks! I am always up for a fun get together and drinks and appetizers are my favorite thing to contribute to the menu! First up, I am sharing this super tasty Cranberry Apple Punch!
This is the perfect punch to make for Thanksgiving and Christmas parties or just for a family dinner! The Cranberry flavor of this punch screams Holidays in my opinon! But, honestly, can be served year around. This is always a crowd pleaser!
Let’s just jump into the simple recipe!
Combine the apple cider, cranberry juice, orange juice and lemon juice in a large punch bowl or pitcher. Mix together.
Right before serving add the sparkling grape juice. If you’d like to make this an adult only drink, you can substitute the sparkling grape juice out for a sparkling wine of your choice.
Lastly, garnish with apples, oranges, and dried cranberries. And that’s it!!
Cranberry Apple Punch

- Right before serving, add the sparkling grape juice or sparkling wine of your choice)

If you'd like to make this an adult only drink, you can substitute the sparkling grape juice out for a sparkling wine of your choice.
I also like to cut up extra garnishes to put to the side of the punch bowl! That way you and your guests can put a few in the cup cup, before adding punch out of the punch bowl. And then you can leave all the garnishes on the top of the punch! I mean that is what makes this punch so pretty after all!
The recipe is super simple and can be put together in just 10 minutes!
Stay tuned over the next few weeks for more new Holiday drinks and appetizers!
