It is tempting to only think of hot drinks for entertaining in the winter. At least, it certainly is for me here in Minnesota. But if your house can get extremely warm with the oven on and a lot of people milling about (like my parent’s house), then something cold and refreshing is nice for the holidays. And if you happen to live in a warmer weather state, you can certainly appreciate a festive cold punch like this Cranberry Raspberry Punch from Merissa Alink. With just three ingredients, this punch will be a hit without breaking the bank or much effort. So you can spend more time doing what you should be doing during the holidays – enjoying time with family and friends.
Cranberry Raspberry Punch
- 1 64 ounce bottle Cranberry Apple Juice
- 1 48 ounce tub of Raspberry Sherbet
- 1 liter lemon lime Soda
In a large bowl or pitcher, combine all ingredients. Stir together slightly. The sherbet will slowly melt into the punch while keeping it cool so you don’t need to stir until it dissolves unless desired.
Store an extra punch in the refrigerator until needed.
Keep in mind, of course, that the soda will lose its fizz if stored for over 24 hours. Consider serving this along side some warm apple cider or hot cocoa to give guests more options!
