Festive Holiday Punch

IMG_8371

In need of a holiday punch or signature drink for a Thanksgiving gathering or upcoming holiday party? If so, then you have come to the right place because my “festive holiday punch” is easy to create and even easier to drink! I recently served this at a baby shower in my mason jar beverage dispenser (click here to purchase a similar version). I decided to serve this as the non-alcoholic signature drink, and it was a huge hit. The cranberries, orange slices with cloves, fresh mint, sliced apples and cinnamon sticks create a great layering effect for vibrant seasonal colors, and it smells so cozy and delicious. This also serves well as a bubbly spritzer in champagne glasses if you prefer to serve it with alcohol. I have provided both recipes below, and this would look lovely in a large punch bowl with a ladle or in a glass pitcher– Cheers!
