Sparkling Holiday Punch

December 13, 2016

Sparkling holiday punch is a festive beverage that can be prepared for any holiday event.  This effervescent drink can be made for strictly adults (cue the wine) or be sans alcohol for everyone to enjoy.  For added sweetness, you can coat the cranberries in sugar before freezing.  You can also use other fruits like frozen strawberries or raspberries.

Sparkling Holiday Punch


1 liter ginger ale
2 bottles prosecco or other good sparkling wine, chilled
1/2 cup frozen cranberries
1/2 cup mint leaves, washed
1 lime, juiced


Step 1: In a large punch bowl, combine the ginger ale and prosecco.  Add the frozen cranberries and lime juice. Stir gently to combine ingredients.

Step 2: Before adding the mint leaves, twist them gently to help release their natural oil and flavor.

Step 3: Prepare punch right before serving.
