Holiday Party Punch Recipes


We often serve punch after the Christmas dinner or even as an option with it. If you are like me, you are always watching for new holiday party punch recipes to serve. Many places have parties at work that serve punch.

An attractive way to serve the punch is to freeze a small amount in molds that you already have and to use these as the ice. They’ll look pretty floating in the bowl.

Others add sherbet to the top of the punch for a creamy look. Try these recipes and feel free to add your own variations.

On the mandarin punch, do you make the lemonade and OJ or do you leave it as concentrate? And do you drain the mandarin oranges?

Denise, No because you add water with the punch. No, don't drain the mandarin oranges. Thanks for visiting and I hope this answers your questions.
