Jingle Juice

Posted on

This fantastic punch is like a Christmas miracle in a glass. It’s perfect for a big group, doesn’t skimp on the alcohol (we’re talking three bottles of wine AND vodka), and it looks absolutely stunning on any holiday table. The best part? You can get really creative with it and make it your very own Jingle Juice. Just a heads up: if you serve this Christmas cocktail too early in your party, your guests might be snoozing under the tree by the end of the night. Here’s the lowdown:

Jingle Juice variations:
— Wine choice matters. We recommend red moscato for its sweetness, but if that’s not your thing, you can swap it for a lighter red like Grenache, Pinot Noir, or even a bubbly Lambrusco.
— The juice blend. Cran-apple juice is our go-to, but you can play around with what you have—pure cranberry juice works great, and a splash of apple cider can add extra flavor.
— Frozen or fresh cranberries. We use frozen cranberries to keep the punch cold, but if you’ve got fresh ones, they’ll work too—just toss in some ice cubes.
— Additional flair. If you want more pizzazz, toss in apple or orange slices, or even cinnamon sticks.

How to serve Jingle Juice:
The beauty of this punch is how easy it is to serve a crowd. Set it out in a punch bowl or dispenser, and let everyone help themselves. For an extra touch, rim your glasses with sugar. But if you’re hosting a big group, feel free to skip the rim and keep it casual.

Make it ahead:
You can prep this punch up to 3 days ahead by mixing everything (except the fruit, mint, and Prosecco) in advance. Add the bubbly and garnishes right before serving.
