How to make Christmas punch

Pour cranberry juice, pineapple juice, and almond extract into a large drink dispenser and mix.

Pour in ginger ale and give it one quick stir.

Add in cranberries, ice and ginger ale.

If you like it super bubbly then serve within a few hours as it can start to go flat.

Tips for Perfect Christmas Punch

Use good quality “100% juice,” skip juice “beverage” or “cocktail” (they have added water, sweeteners, and or flavors).

Use chilled ingredients. If the soda and juices are cold beforehand you don’t need to add as much ice, therefore it won’t be so diluted.

Don’t be tempted to stir or you’ll stir more than once when adding the soda or you’ll start to stir out the carbonation.

Garnish it. Drinks taste better when they look better. The cranberries and limes are optional but use at least one or the other (unless serving from a pitcher or punch bowl, skip cranberries due to choking hazard).

What you’ll need:

  • 6 cups cranberry juice or pomegranate cranberry juice*
  • 3 cups pineapple juice**
  • 1 Tbsp almond extract
  • 3 liters ginger ale
  • 1 (12 oz.) bag fresh cranberries (optional)
  • 2 fresh limes, sliced (optional)
  • Ice

Pour cranberry juice, pineapple juice, and almond extract into a large drink dispenser and mix. Pour in ginger ale and give it one quick stir.

Add in cranberries, ice, and ginger ale. Serve within a few hours for best results as it will start to go flat.

**If you have room in your fridge preferably chill the soda and juices first or keep them in a cold (not freezing) garage, that way you don’t need to add much ice and dilute it
