Festive Fruit Punch Christmas Drink Recipe

No more boring punches at the Holiday table. These simple Christmas drink recipes will put more punch in your punch.

  • 1 Regular sized container of your favorite frozen fruit punch
  • Long ladle or stir stick

  3. Mix thoroughly
  4. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled - 30 minutes to 1 hour

Fresh Creamy Eggnog

This is not your store bought eggnog and is therefore sure to get rave reviews from all who get to taste it. This has a better consistency and flavor.


What you will need

  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Electric mixer or Whisk
  • 12 jumbo egg yolks
  • 1 pound granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 quart whole milk
  • 1 quart heavy cream, lightly whipped
  • 1 liter spiced rum (optional - can also be served on the side if desired)
  • Pitcher or Punch Bowl

Directions for Eggnog Christmas Drink Recipe


  1. Beat your 12 egg yolks in a large mixing bowl. Adding the 1lb. sugar gradually to the yolks while mixing. Continue to beat mixture until it thickens.
  2. Heat 1/2 quart of milk until hot (not boiling-on the stove is preferable) and pour into the sugar/egg mixture while mixing. 
  3. Add in the other 1/2qt of milk, vanilla extract and rum if including.
  4. Pour the eggnog base into a large pitcher or punch bowl and place in the refrigerator to chill for 31/2 to 4 hours.
  5. Fold the lightly whipped cream into the mixture then pour into individual glasses.
  6. Top lightly with freshly ground nutmeg.

My family has enjoyed these Christmas drink recipes for years and I hope that your family enjoys them as well. Being a mother I've always omitted the rum from the recipe but kept it on the side as an option for the adults. You can also easily double the recipe and make one for the youngsters and one for adults. Happy Holidays!

      Loved Fruit punch drinks during holidays! Ever heard of Princessa drink (mix of papaya juice, pineapple and orange puree)? It's a blast during parties. You can concoct your own mix out of it. :D
