How to Make Non-Alcoholic Christmas Punch
Make it Boozy
If you'd like to add a little extra holiday spirit and make this beverage a holiday cocktail, try adding a splash of white rum, vodka or sparkling wine to the mix. Serve it over plenty of ice for a bubbly drink your adult guests will love.
Other Ways to Make It
This is one of the best Christmas punch recipes to enjoy both hot or cold. I like to heat it up while decorating the Christmas tree and serve it with Santa's Chocolate Chip Cookies. What an awesome combination!
To serve it as a hot beverage, mix all ingredients (except ginger ale) in a dutch oven or large pot and allow it to simmer over low heat until cranberries pop open. Add ¼ cup brown sugar if desired and stir well.
Throw in a few cinnamon sticks for extra flavor. Pour into decorate mugs and garnish with whole cranberries and a sprig of rosemary and mint.
- Substitute orange juice, pineapple juice or limeade for any of the fruit juices.
- Add cinnamon sticks and ground cloves for a spiced punch.
- Use club soda instead of ginger ale if you want your punch to be less sweet.
Any type of fruit that can be sliced looks beautiful in this punch. Try orange slices, pears, kiwi or limes for a completely different taste and presentation.
Absolutely! Even though this is named a Christmas punch, it can be served at bridal showers, baby showers and even weddings. The flavors are incredible and can be customized by changing colors of fruit juices.
The most popular Christmas drink is eggnog, followed closely by Mulled Wine or Wassail. What makes this punch so great is that it's alcohol-free! That means both kids and adults can enjoy it together...which is what the holidays are all about!
Yes, you can add white rum, bourbon, vodka or sparkling wine to this recipe if desired. However, make sure you're only serving it to adults if you choose to go this route.
Storage and Freezing
Enjoy leftover punch in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Freeze leftovers in a clean, empty milk jug for up to 6 months. Thaw in the refrigerator for 3 days and cut jug open with scissors over a punch bowl or large container. Add ginger ale and mix well. Garnish as desired.
What to Serve with Christmas Punch
I have precious memories of gathering with family on Christmas Eve and watching our kids open gifts from their grandparents. We always made a non alcoholic Christmas punch recipe to go with Sausage Balls and an adorable Pigs in a Blanket wreath!
This refreshing beverage goes great with your favorite appetizers at holiday parties.
