Soon we’ll be celebrating Christmas and ringing in the New Year, believe it or not. Whether you love to celebrate with friends on New Year’s Eve, or like us, prefer to snuggle up at home and watch the ball drop from the comfort of your own couch, a special holiday beverage is definitely in order.
My grandma used to make an orange sherbet punch every Christmas. Though I’ve switched it up just a tad, this recipe is very similar. I’m definitely adding it to my list of The Best Christmas Recipes for Your Holiday Celebrations.
A Punch That Brings Back Memories
Below you’ll find a printable recipe.
This punch brings back so many memories. Every Christmas my grandma would set the punch bowl out on top of her big console tv. Little handled glasses hung on the sides of that punch bowl. She’d scoop orange sherbet as fast as she could, topping her delicious punch with every scoop. There’s something about adding the sherbet that really does the trick. It gives a creamy layer of deliciousness that leaves behind an epic sherbet mustache. And if the sherbet isn’t quite melted, it’s a cold drink with a touch of frozen citrus flavor.
Everyone would grab a cup, and the punch seemed to refill itself as everyone enjoyed it. Looking back, I realize now how much pride and happiness Grandma got out of having everyone in her home.
While she used 7-Up in her punch, I chose to use Cranberry Mist TWST (or Cranberry Sprite works too), along with a little less Cranberry Apple Juice.
Grab a cup and toast to the New Year!
