How to Serve Holiday Punch

There are several options for presenting and serving holiday drinks at your next holiday party or dinner.

In addition to setting out your holiday punch, be sure to fill an ice bucket with ice and place it next to your punch. Guests will appreciate having the option to add ice cubes to their glasses.

Below are some ways to serve your holiday punch to your guests.

Punch Bowl: Make your holiday punch in a large punch bowl. Be sure to leave a ladle for guests to pour themselves a drink.

Beverage Dispenser: Set your Christmas punch up in a large drink dispenser for guests to self-serve and enjoy.

I like to use a double drink dispenser. I fill the second one with ice, water, and mint leaves.

How to Garnish Holiday Drinks

When hosting for the holidays, how you present your food and drinks can play a huge role in the success of your party.

Guests will appreciate the extra time you take to garnish and present your punch. Below is a list of wonderful garnishments you can use to make a beautiful punch.

Cranberries: Cranberries are the holiday berry! Easily accessible during the holiday season, fresh cranberries are a wonderful way to garnish your holiday punch quickly.

Drop them in your punch bowl or skewer sugar-coated cranberries on a cocktail stick for guests to place inside their drink.

Pomegranate: Like Cranberries, pomegranate seeds have a rich berry color that makes them perfect for garnishing holiday drinks and dishes.

Herbs: Add a pop of green with a beautiful green herb. For this holiday punch, I use sprigs of rosemary.

Do not be alarmed; the rosemary does not affect the taste of the punch even when left to sit in the punch overnight.

If you want an herb to flavor your punch, reach for basil or mint leaves instead of rosemary.

Citrus: Slices of orange, lime, lemon, or grapefruit instantly add interest to any drink. They are bursting with a lovely citrus smell and vibrant color. Orange and lime slices are added to this holiday punch, as I think the colors work well for Christmas.

How to Make Non-Alcoholic Holiday Punch

Make a kid-friendly holiday punch by mixing complementary juices in a bowl. Mix cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, pineapple juice, and a splash of apple cider to make a delicious holiday punch. Next, add your garnishments and serve.
