How to make Christmas Punch:
Like I mentioned, this punch only takes 5 minutes to put together.
I highly recommend making the punch a few hours in advance and keeping it in the refrigerator. The juices will get a change to infuse with fresh fruit for best flavor.
Add sparkling soda, like 7Up, right before serving so it won’t go flat. Make sure the soda is cold so it does not change the temperature of the punch.
If possible, avoid adding ice cubes to the punch bowl or the pitches. Serve ice on a side so people can choose to add some to their glass. If ice is added to the punch bowl, it will melt and dilute the drink.
One way to keep punch bowl cold is to put it on ice. If available, place the punch bowl inside a larger bowl filled with ice about half way. The ice will keep punch cold from below.
How to make Christmas Punch with alcohol:
This punch is easily made into a holiday cocktail just by adding some rum or vodka and substituting soda for sparkling wine.
You can substitute half or all of soda with sparkling wine. Use Prosecco over Champagne because it’s sweeter.
Add 6 oz of rum (or vodka) to the punch as well.
