Cocktail Hour: A Festive Cocktail Punch for the Holidays
PUBLISHED ON: 12.21.2022
The season from Thanksgiving through the New Year is my favorite time of year. I start off organized, with my checklist, and plan in hand busily moving through the season while enjoying the festive nature of the season. A few days before Christmas and I am feeling like I can’t rub two candy canes together by the end of the day.
If you feel like I do, you may need a recipe idea to serve up this holiday season to ensure you don’t play bartender all evening. This is a delicious and super easy festive cocktail punch to help you enjoy the most wonderful time of the year, and a reason to kick back and enjoy the logs on the fire with family and friends.

Cheers to you Velva and Merry Christmas. This cocktail is too gorgeous to drink. 🙂 And love that sprig of Rosemary.
Wonderful! It’s like a fancy mimosa! And yes, sometimes you don’t want to be making drinks all night…
This looks SO good!
Velva, this cocktail looks delicious, and would work for any occasion. It’s a must try for this rum girlie!!!
Happy Holidays 🎄

This sounds perfect for our small (6 people) New Year’s Eve gathering. We begin our celebration on Paris time (4:00pm here) and will start with your punch and apps. Dinner and New Year’s streamers at 5:00 (midnight London time). We watch a holiday themed movie together with dessert and are usually in bed by 9;30!

A nice festive cocktail to serve with appetizers. I hope you had a nice Christmas Day and wish you a very Happy New Year,
I normally serve mimosas for Christmas morning brunch, but I took this recipe, eliminated vodka, added a cup of lemonade, simple blackberry garnish and served in champagne glasses. It was a hit! For the kids, no Prosecco and substituted ginger ale. Festive!
Perfect timing as we are hosting a few neighbours and it will be fun to have a house cocktail. Hope you have a happy and healthy new year.
Although a bit late to print this one for holidays, it seems great to make it for any weekend when friends and family arrive during cold days! Thank you and have a Happy New Year!
