Santa’s Sneaky Holiday Punch

A punch bowl is a fantastic addition to any holiday party – I really think they should make a comeback! I tried shopping for one and was unsuccessful…..all I could find were plastic punch bowls, so disappointing. After mentioning it to a girlfriend, I learned that low and behold she had one! I’ve also learned of another girlfriend who has one too – good to know in case I need two for a larger gathering.

This recipe was really easy to make, you could combine the vodka and cranberry juice ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator to blend the flavors, but I made it on the spot adding the bubbly right before guests arrived.

For this I combined 2 parts cranberry juice, 2 parts bubbly, and 1 part vodka – then added in some orange slices and fresh cranberries. Add an ice bucket and rocks glasses and you’ve got yourself a punch bowl station!

We went through two of these during our monthly Euchre game that we hosted this month. I decided to call it the Santa’s Sneaky Holiday Punch because the next day, The Hubby informed me that it was a drink that definitely “snuck up” on you! It’s quite delicious and even one guest said to me, “this is so refreshing, I keep going back for more!” (sneaky punch!)
