I’m always a fan of EASY Punch Recipes. This Vodka Punch checks all the boxes.

I also kept this Holiday Party Punch economical by using a little Everclear®! I’ve used Everclear a few times this year to make some of my favorite cocktail infusions (You might remember the Homemade Peach Tea Vodka, Homemade Strawberry Shortcake Vodka, and Homemade Apple Pie Vodka!) and have been falling in love more and more with each recipe. I first fell in love when visiting their awesome website, Make It Your Own by Everclear®, and saw how endless the possibilities are when making cocktails with this 190 proof grain alcohol with no taste, making it the perfect clean slate for flavors.

It’s fast to pull flavor from the ingredients you’re adding and you don’t even need much! One bottle goes a long way, making this SO cost effective. It’s great for infusions, but also great for large batch punches. Again, you can use less, and it’s lack of flavor is just perfect when you want those Fall flavors to really shine through! It’s the perfect spike for this Easy Holiday Punch! MMM!

Tips for how to make the BEST Holiday Punch:

Making a great punch is a matter of a great flavor combination. I love how the cranberry and orange juice blend together, but I also think the Sparkling Apple Cider is a huge piece of the puzzle. All the flavors of Fall! If making ahead, leave the Sparking Cider out and stir in cold at the last minute before serving. Makes sure the bubbly zip will be there for your guests!

If you’re on the hunt for the best holiday punch recipes, look no further! Orange and cranberry…a match made in Heaven.

I just love the flavor combination of the sparkling cider, cranberry juice, orange juice, and ginger ale. Talk about autumn in a glass! Your Thanksgiving guests will thank you, believe me! If serving for a party and want to skip the alcohol, trust me it’s just as delicious as Non Alcoholic Christmas Punch.

The color is vibrant, the flavor is AMAZING, and there’s virtually zero prep. Anyone and everyone can open a bag of cranberries and slice some oranges. Those are the only skills you need! If you want to go above and beyond, you can garnish with our Sugared Cranberries! Swoon.

I served this Holiday Punch Recipe in a  VERY cheap plastic punch bowl I bought from Party City. People always compliment it and I have a little internal chuckle. I think once you pour this pretty red punch in and top with lots of fresh fruit, it can make any serving bowl look good. Just proves you don’t have to have everything you see in magazines to be a great hostess. We can do this thing!

This looks so pretty and refreshing! :)
Jody
Sounds super delicious and I am going to be making it. Thanks.
Polly mac
Can I buy everclear in the uk.
    Becky Hardin
    I actually think it's only currently available in the US. Darn!! You could use about 1 1/2 cups regular vodka in its place. Hope you love the recipe!
Kim
Have you tried this non alcoholic for the kids? Sold I leave as is but omit the everclear?
Sarah Richardson
Looks great! Have any servings does this make?
Kim
Looks AMAZING! Thanks for sharing! For next year (or sooner!) you have to try this hibiscus holiday punch, it's my absolute favorite!: https://www.alcoholprofessor.com/blog/2016/12/15/a-holiday-punch-that-does-it-all/
Heather King
Is the sparkling cider needed or can I use something else?
    Becky Hardin
    I think it really adds something to the punch, but you could use just apple cider in place. Enjoy!
Jana
You think champagne can be substituted for the apple cider?
    Becky Hardin
    It will be a bit different but think it would taste great still. Definitely could work. Happy New Year!
Teresa
Can you make a mold and freeze it instead of ice ?
Melvin Allen
Added 2 cups of pineapple juice and it was a hit with my guests! Will most definitely make this again.
