Holiday Punch Recipes
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.
½ c cinnamon candies
½ c water
3 c orange juice
8 1 liter bottles of Coca-Cola, chilled
Orange Slices, as many as desired to float in the punch
1. Heat cinnamon candies with water, stirring until the candy is dissolved.
2. Add orange juice and then pour this mixture into ice cube trays and freeze.
3. Pour the Coca Cola into a bowl and add the orange ice cubes.
4. Float the orange slices on the top of the punch.
